There are several things you can use to restore the polish and shine on the stainless steel functions on SAKs. Toothpaste works very well for me. If you are looking for something with
better abilities than toothpaste than I recommend Autosol cream polish. It will remove micro-scratches and restore the polish better. It will not be able to remove deep scratches either. It cleans and polish the stainless steel and removes oxidation. Even if this is stainless steel the surface will get some surface changes if exposed to the elements over time. The Wenger stainless
steel used on this New Ranger is very corrosion resistant. The Autosol product is a multi-tool type of substance that can be used for much more than just metals.
you are sharpening with stones or other devices you can notice that you get this dark particle’s on water stones or on dry diamond stones. On the internet you will find words like slurry and swarf. Substances that occur when you are sharpening with devices
and metal removed. There is a difference between wet-stones and dry diamond stones. When you use polishing agents or substances it is important to see how a white cloth becomes
dark from the process you are doing. When you use Autosol it is important to use the hand and cloth with some pressure over the surfaces and complete function. When you are moving the cloth in a polishing motion the polishing substance, surface pollution,
oxidation and metal will mix.
After polishing it can be smart to rinse the blade very well with hot water and use a clean dry cloth to be sure. It depends on what you use the blade on if you want to leave the surface after the cream is applied and wiped. Some use Autosol by hand and some on electrical devices for polishing. It contains polishing substances that you can hear and feel is a bit abrasive. Some use this product polishing up Cellidor handle scales on SAKs. It is a multi-tool polishing product.
