Cleaning blade

(1/2) > >>

I have an old western knife that has some pitting and a lot of scratches in it. Does anyone have a way I could clean it up ? Thanks

If you don't have power tools get some 320, 400, and 600 grit sand paper and go after it with some oil and elbow grease.
As for the oil, anything light weight will work. Olive Oil is my favorite if I don't have like 3 in 1

Like Pine said except I use Windex instead of oil...But that old blade looks great with the natural patina.

I second what Tippit said that blade looks good with the patina.  but I like original old time stuff!

I understand what you guys are saying about the patina. It looks like someone took coarse sandpaper and sanded the blade lengthwise. Would like to get those marks out
