I have managed to get some surface rust accumulate on my Forest WWII blade; thanks to the snowy and humid Midwest climate.

The question is, how should I clean the rust without damaging the carbide teeth? Is evaporust the right choice?

Thanks!

Rust? Use it on some scrap. Rust won’t last long.

Yup.. use will generally remove any surface rust in no time. If you want to go all out though, dunk it in some evaporust for a bit.

Cheers,

TO keep it from doing it again you might use Johnson’s Paste Wax on it with a very light coat.

I’ve used bit-n-blade for years with a tootbrush i tape to the side of the bottle. I spritz let set and brush with toothbrush and works great.
