    Default Is this rust or something else? (TI razor)

    Hello,

    I was wondering if this is rust or something else. It's a modern day TI Evidé Sonnant.

    These marks appeared after honing on Naniwa 1K, BBW with slurry and yellow coti. I noticed the spots right after bevel setting on the Nani.

    So, is this rust or something else?

    Kind regards,

    Blade was not totally dried. Mothers metal polish should remove it. Its only on surface now. If left and moisture is left on it then it will get worse.

    Just the beginning.

    I've seen this a lot, with modern blades etched that way. It reminds me more of devils spit, than rust.

    Basically deep set rust that can render a hollow ground razor beyond repair.
    That looks OK, but agree it must have not been dry enough before storage.
    Rust forms real fast.

    Thank you all.

    So, can I remove it with metal polish such as Simichrome?

    Polishing will leave a shine different from the unpolished areas.

    Don't get any polish on the edge . It will dull the blade.

    It may remove the etch as well, so be careful.
