I have a set of knives like that. I clean them with steel wool and cold water, dry well, then rub a little bit of olive oil on the blades, and wipe off with a paper towel. Then I wrap them in a microfiber cleaning cloth, and store in my 'knife' drawer till time to use again.

Do you have anywhere you could get your knife chrome-coated? My son recently got laid off from an industrial chrome-coating company, and he said chrome-coating will not only keep rust out, it'll keep the knife sharp.

Try linseed oil and an oil cloth next time, just don't wait to you need them to take them out and wipe them down.
