    There is a product called Flitz that will polish and remove the surface rust on the blade. It can be bought at any Home Depot or Lowes.


    That tip is is just screaming to break off. It's bent almost 90 degrees. That would be a tough call to take a mallet to it even a rawhide mallet might snap it!!! It would be totally up to you on that one!!!!! So do you want a dagger with a bent tip or NO tip at all????

    There is always the temptation to go a bit further when carrying out restoration work. The trick is knowing when to call it a day. Sometimes we get too confident in our ability, and end up causing further damage!

    Leave it be Ben!!......now that you have it listed in the classifieds,,it should be sold as is. Leave the bending decision up to the next buyer. Regards Larry

    I got the Flitz and cleaned it up I will update the pictures in the classifieds asap
    Most of the rust came out but it left some pitting, It looks 100% better and is really shiny now. The pictures do not do it justice at all. It is hard to take pictures of a shiny object indoors...
