I always keep naval jelly handy, it's inexpensive and will pretty much get rid of anything down to bare metal. Just remember it'll remove almost anything, including some coloring and surface finishes! Keeping different types of abrasives handy is a good idea, 0000 steel wool is the most gentle for light rust removal but scotch-brite pads or rougher steel wool, brass wool and other products give different results for different jobs.

Looks great! :)

Really? Did they? Unfortunately we don't get many of the cultural expressions from the States over here. But we do get Adam and Jamie.

Mythbusters. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. A great tv series from Discovery Channel. dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/mythbusters

Which science channel do you watch? Over here we've only got Discovery Science. And that sucks IMHO. Science is not (usually) about gadgets and fast-faster-fastest, but about slow things that are quite boring unless you look closely - like sharpening.

Looks like they'll be testing the effects of leather stropping on knives. :silly:

They do lots of repeats, though the first time around the series called "How it Made" is very interesting. I like the "Through the Wormhole series with Morgan Freeman.

Then there is the Military Channel...

military.discovery.com/

I have gotten into some of their series if I am bored.

I have watched some of the Mythbusters stuff...

I used to use coca cola on rusted chrome bumpers on cars. I swear it worked... but maybe that was as much the rubbing I did to take it off as the solvent properties of Coke...

Cleaning chrome was actually confirmed... did better than the chrome polish.

Mythbusters: Uses for Coke

See? You need to watch..... :whistle:

Yeah, I also like "how it made". I've never seen Morgan Freeman on discovery, but he's a truely great scientist. Horse category (don't pronounce it as animal horse - its French :lol: ). Have you got a link for me for shows I can watch online?

They don’t show that over here, probably because that’s a bit sensitive here. I'm gonna watch it.

I’ve a great straight razor. Only it has some rust. Will put it in coca cola and let you know the results.

Morgan Freeman
www.imdb.com/name/nm0000151/bio

They also have shows on the planets, Wonders of the universe, SciFi Science etc. These are the shows that I look for.

Military Channel has some pretty good series. The Greatest Tank Battles is one that I like. The they have series about the evolution of the warplane, handguns, machine guns. Saturday night they usually play classic Hollywood style war movies with commentary by some Military person. I end up there when I want to watch some TV and nothing else interests me... though I have planned to watch some of the movies.

Take a look around the sites, all of that is linked from the home pages that I posted originally. You may find something of interest.

For future reference, I have had good results on surface rust like that just using a scotchbrite pad and WD-40, or as someone said, steel wool, together with WD40. If you want to polish it rather than just removing rust, you can start with ~800 grit paper and work out to finer grits. But a cleaver like that is probably left with a brushed looking finish anyway, and the issue is moot at this point.

Regarding rust removal on tools and such, there is the electrolysis school of thought and here is one thread working on garagejournal.com to build a large one, although there are numerous versions on the net

and here is another interesting thread on salt and vinegar
