I love my Old Hickory knives. For rust, I use naval jelly. When that's finished, I use simichrome for the tarnish. The pits are there and I don't worry about them. Wash and hand dry them after each use. After I get them "cleaned up", I seldom worry about tarnish unless it gets on the cutting edge. I have found several that I have had to replace the handles.
The pits are kinda like the wrinkles on an old mans face. They don't hurt anything.

Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.
