    I figured polish would take the etch off as well. Think that different polishes are easier on etching?

    Is it my imagination or did the etching go from being a lighter contrast to the blade to being a darker contrast?

    The before pic wasnt mine so the lighting was different. Im sure that I buffed some patina and dirt away with the brasso. Im not one to run a controlled experament but maybe sombody should?

    Actually, I think it is the opposite.
    It seems to have taken away the patina as well, which in turn makes the difference between the smooth blade surface and the etching more visible.

    Default Saving the ETCH!

    I just looked through a dozen threads here at SRP WRT "saving the etching".

    Hands down, this one wins.


    the rest can be deleted.


    Now, who has the MSDS for Zep Rust Eraser? wonder if it's related to CLR, which i have on hand. (nope, not much similar by my findings)
