    It somehow gives me great comfort to know that this happens to others. Though you are a thousand times better than I am when it comes to whipping it back into some shiny, sexy beauty.

    My story is usually that the kids get too grabby, so I move the knife to a safer place. I think it is dry and good to go, but while I am out at the grill my wife is using it to slice limes for her drink, watermelon for the kids etc. We eat, dishes pile up, knife is hidden, and when I do the dishes in the in the morning I find a nicely freckled blade -- often times with a rectangular chunk of cantaloupe still stuck to it giving the patina a nice random-box effect.

    Recently someone who shall remain unnamed knocked mw whole knife kit into the steam table at work. How long it was in there I'll never know. When I found my bag later I remember it was hot and soaked through. I'm like, "Why is my bag hot?" My rehandled carving fork was totally ruined so I had to drill the scales off and start over on it. Many knives were rusted but fixable. However my Mioroshi Deba was beyond repair with my limited tools. The pitting was so deep in the ura it needed to be reground and also re mirror polished. This was returned to Konosuke at my own cost at about $300. Most of that price is actually just the shipping and customs.

    That's a horror story Rick.

    Urge to kill was certainly rising.

    Like a vintage car guy says "hey it's just surface rust" In this case that's actually true. Oh how I love re-active knives.
