I have a knife that is in excellent condition but developed 2 tiny black spots (pinhead size). Flitz didn’t remove them. I thought of trying a Dremel tool with a cotton buffing bit and a bit of jewelers rouge. Is that advisable, or would it be better to leave it alone? Or does anyone know a way to remove them without lessening the value by causing damage? Thanks. Oscar
I agree with Jerry, location would definitely affect the method that I use. It's likely you may have a couple of pits that are deep enough in the steel that you cannot get them out without buffing a dimple into the surface where the dimples reside.
If it is on the blade or spring, I would follow docs advice and use a pencil on them. After that I would coat them with Eezox and repeat the Eezox treatment annually. Eezox will prevent rust and it will prevent it from spreading. Renaissance wax makes no such claim to my knowledge.
Sorry guys. Here’s a picture. The spot is not indented when I run a finger across it. It seems very superficial. I’m guessing blade is carbon steel, spot is on blade. Not a big deal but if I can remove it, I’m a perfectionist. Thanks
