gary, an issued FS dagger certainly merits some care and attention. I've no experience with the stiletto you have or how its constructed or the materials used. I looked it up a little and it appears to be made by a company based in Sheffield using carbon steel. Not sure if yours has been blued, coated, painted etc.

If you don't mind experimenting why not try cleaning the rust spots with some WD40 and a toothbrush first. The bristles are generally soft although it may leave some marks the coating is very soft. The coating may be discoloured but I don't think you can run away from that. If you can remove the rust (or at least scrub away the rust), then you can apply a little autosol using a cotton bud - see how much you can remove....ultimately, unless you strip the entire coating, refinish then respray, you can only clean off and arrest the rust a little. After cleaning, you should ensure that you rustproof the stiletto to prevent further corrosion.

If you want a shortcut, you can ask Sheares how to refurb the stiletto? I believe that CDO units make their unit purchases via Sheares?

Good luck and let us know how it goes....

The stiletto... I call it the pride that comes with rust. Just about unavoidable.. Short of a full strip, rust proofing and then repainting.. there's really not much else that can restore it well or close to its original pristine state. I have an older one, it rust even easier but since its "unpainted" it's easier to oil and keep rust at bay. Still the exposed edges is a pain and need a little honing time to time to lick off tiny rust spots, oiled or not.

I'd say go radical on it. Buy a paint stripper and strip off all the paint from the knife. after that, attack the rust - first with rust removers then with 0000 wool, then hone it a little. Thereafter spray paint it flat black (you can buy the aerosol. if you want it to really stick, use the flat black paint for motorbike exhausts - those are twice the price of the pylox but last a long long time) and it's nice and matt. Store it back in your display box with your badges, call signs etc but check it from time to time.

Show us once you're done

Mine didn't come with a display box as memento... since it's illegal to carry outside and frankly it has limited functions outside of those gungho slit-a-sentry war movie scene.. I used it as a letter opener around the house

Ok nevermind me.. just trying to chalk up to a 100 post to post pictures...

rustproofing - if you're gonna paint it, then painting it is rustproofing it. If you gonna etch it with hot vinegar, then the etch/patina helps to rustproof. I would apply a wax like renaissance wax after etching to make it even more rust-resistant. Or else you can oil it as well.

WD40 is not a anti-corrosion spray - it is a water displacer and doesn't work well as a anti-corrosion treatment. You can use singer oil, lithium grease, gun oil, tuff glide, breakfree clp, militec, eezox, fishing reel oil etc etc. If you're going to use it to cut food up, then you should use a food-safe oil.

Mineral oil (for eg. Ikea) is generally very thick and also attracts a lot of gunk. some oils are less viscous and may be easier to apply and dries nicer.

If you're just going to put it back in the safe, I recommend renaissance wax - a little goes a long way, and you can buff it a little after it dries.

Or if u have extra money to burn, then this i saw in black tactical may just work.
