    Default Dagger Preservation

    Hi,

    I have a Nazi dagger in my collection and have recently started to notice minor rusting. I am wondering what you guys suggest to "oil" the dagger to preserve it. I come from a US military background where CLP "solves" every single rust problem, but I don't think its the best option here.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    Perhaps a photo would help to see the type of dagger and the amount and effects of the rust

    Hi Phil i always put renwax on all my daggers, and never had any problems with rust, museums use this for protecting a lot of there gear, you can buy it on ebay,

    To be honest these look like finger marks that have been left without cleaning them off when handled, I see other fingerprints on the metal, fingerprints contain oils and acid that can eat into the metal, it is very slight at the moment, wipe the blade with a clean dry cloth, then use Ronnie's suggestion of Renwax, and restrict your handling of the blade, apply the wax periodically

    It's a second pattern luftwaffe dagger just incase you didn't know. The suggestions given for preservation are spot on. Doing anything more will probably only hurt the dagger, and destroy its value.

    Fingerprints if left unchecked will become like a tattoo....but in the case of metal vs fingerprints...this is not removable. Wipe it down good as advised above. This dagger appears to be an SMF maker..."seated King trademark...correct me if I am wrong. What is the name on the back of the crossguard? Is there a scabbard? Regards Larry
