To clean or not to clean that is the question.

Article about: Hi everyone, I had been debating whether or not to clean my 2nd model luft for a few months after I got it, when it arrived although I was pleased with it there was a lot more rust and dirt

    Hi Bernie thanks for your reply, I agree with you about cleaning the blades and I do like the patina look but the rust had to go as it was spoiling the look and my enjoyment of this dagger, it would only of led to more damage being done, I did clean some patina off but not much only enough to see the hand enhancement a bit better, I think the overall look is much better and hopefully ive helped preserve this piece for generations to come.

    Here is another. I tend to like orphans as I have the ability and tools to take care of them.
