I squirted oil in and worked the blade in a panic, then thought that oil prevents not stops rust.
I also saw mention of wd40 on AAPK.
I have Fitz polish but can't disassemble the knife to reach the area around the pivot pin.
Do I degrease and then use wd40? Do I soak in vinegar? Do I bitch slap myself?
Getting to those hidden cracks and places is my problem. The exposed blade now has a liberal coating of ren wax.
Is there hope for the tang? (is there hope for me?)
I also notice that the fine edge of some of my blades is prone to rust before the rest of the blade. Is ren wax enough to prevent that?
The tang of my prized Ablett got rusty through my prize neglect.
