I have a 40-year-old Schrade Old Timer 1540T drop point knife that I have used to field dress, skin, and clean many deer, hogs, turkey, and who knows what else, over the years. The blade is not stainless. I typically wash, dry, re-sharpen, and lightly oil after each use. This weekend, I used it to clean a nasty old duck. I didn't clean the knife until the next day (not unusual) but now the blade is stained black wherever there was duck blood. Is there something I can use to remove the stains other than steel wool and elbow grease?

Polishing wheel if you got.

Wait...

If it is oxidation, you might just lift it by scrubbing it with aluminum foil and baking soda. Wet the foil first, or make a solution of the soda and water. That is supposed to lift oxidation stains.

Get some Flitz, works great and reduces elbow grease.

I use Simichrome. Flitz also works.

Thanks. I didn't have any Flitz, but found an old tube of MAAS metal polish in the garage. Now I can't look at the knife without wearing my sunglasses!
