    Degrease and swab on Brownells blueing solution, 4xxxx steel wool and repeat. Not very challenging but effective..

    I was of the understanding bluing was pretty far from food safe, happy to be wrong but I'd properly check before using it

    Indeed it is, but the blueing solution is removed before you use the knife, you only leave the reaction behind.

    We had a thread on FF a couple of years ago about bluing a knife. I had found a small company that makes a cold bluing product (can't recall if it's Brownell's that Jim used) and inquired about it. One member bought some and tried it. I think he didn't have great results. The bluing took, but didn't protect the blade, and possible wore off.
