My RUST-RIDDLED Problem Knife!!!!

Postby barshoo » Mon Sep 03, 2018 8:53 pm

For your viewing DIS-pleasure is my RUSTY Rainy Vallotton Custom Knife in all it's pathetic glory. I discovered it a few weeks ago when I opened it's case to oil it. If you want to see what's left of the rust, check out the back bolsters. There was a LOT on the top bolster and a little on the bottom bolster.

My idea (after wiping off as much as I possibly did) is to use 1200 grit sandpaper to gently sand off the rest, then send it away to be re-polished. But, I didn't want to do that until I asked you guys what you think, and advise.
