    Default Dagger Cleaning w/ frosted etch

    I have a vet friend that has a Forestry Dagger that he brought back from the War. It has not been stored very well and it looks to me to need at least some type of a wipe down. I know better than to use polish but I am not well versed on daggers in general. I would like opinions and advice on what I should do to clean this dagger. Thank you all in advance.

    Regards

    Jeff

    Hi, Killroy.


    Could you post a few photos of it ?

    It may not be that bad and as you say, may only need a wipe down.
    Using polish is ok, but stay out of the etched areas.............!

    If it is tarnished with fingerprints or rust, not a whole lot you can
    do with out removing metal.

    I have use a product called 'Sheath' which I coat all my blades with
    after light cleaning. It does not leave residue, but a super fine
    rust preventative that cannot be seen..............
    Regards,


    Steve.

    As soon as I go visit him again I will. I only see him once in a while but I have a k98 that I may be purchasing this week and I have a M1 that my dad purchased that I wanted to show him as well. If the k98 comes in this week I will see him and get the pics of it.
