    I've got a couple of guns I want to touch up. But I read that cold blues strongly smell like sulphur. Is that also true of Oxpho blue?

    Oxpho Blue never has smelled offensive to me.

    Even if you put your nose in the bottle you can't smell a thing. Works great for touch up.

    I'm in complete agreement as I just went and checked my bottle. I never remembered an offensive odor, but thought I'd check to verify.

    Actually, most cold blues have an odor of Selenium, not Sulfur. BTW, Selenium, in the right form, is quite toxic. That means rubber gloves are the order of the day when using the stuff.

    Oxpho blue turns my fingers blue.
