    Ah ok. Obviously I wouldnt wanna use something that is too harsh. I found that Autosol has worked well for me, but if there is something softer or less harsh, i would use that. Not sure if Semichrome is available here in Germany, but will check. Like I mentioned, I dont go crazy using Autosol, but use very little and have never had problems with the crossgrain being affected in any way. Thanks for the headsup on the less harsh semichrome.

    Hi Dion,

    I have spelled the name incorrectly, its called simichrome polish & can be bought off ebay.

    i guess everybody has there own way of cleaning blades ect, i would rather leave as is if there is no live rust & just clean of dirt & fingerprints.

In fact, the blades were then protected for many years to come. If I understand you correctly, you would rather have surface rust and or fingerprints on the blade than polish it?? Autosol is a product that was made especially for blades by the guys who make blades, so why can it not be used lightly on the blade to shine it up a little? Just curious!
      Rust will not appear if dagger is storage in dary area, and if you touch dagger with clean cotton gloves.

        Absolutely, I agree with not touching a blade if its been looked after, but definately needs cleaning if there are fingerprints. And that is generally the case if it comes from a vet or the family.
