Kasenit has not been available for years.  A similar product is Cherry Red or Bownells sells some private label stuff.  None of it gives the deep case blade guides require.

There is a method that infuses carbon into steel by burning something like leather it in a sealed packing box.  Google it for directions.  You also might be able to find somebody that does it commercially.

A local get together sounds like a great idea. I have family in the Richibucto / Saint-Charles / Aldouane areas.

No Vantour they are not. I switched back to sealled after a one season run of the greasables.
Too messy for my liking in that location. I just use the best possible grade marine type bearing I can get. Initial purchase is more but the longevity far out values that initial purchase.  
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.
