    Removing patina help

    So I have a knife of a friends that has a patina on it,

    I got some flitz and used a steel wool to remove it. Most is gone however some is still left. Outlines of it. Any idea on how to get the rest gone?

    Auto buffing compound will do it.
    If you reach the age of 60 without becoming a curmudgeon, you haven't been paying attention.

    Flitz should work pretty well. 2K paper will introduce scratch marks and shiny spots.

    Mario and Salty would be better references, they are patinaphobes.

    Hopefully salty will chime in, this is an older knife he wants to try to make a design with his so he wants to remove the older patina first.

    The flitz took most of it off but there are still stains on it. trying to figure out how to remove those as well.

    @ marko- I sharpened and made some videos today of the 210 will try to upload them as well as write a review in the next couple days.

    If patina has been formed over years, Flitz won't remove it, so you would need to use some abrasives. 2K is too fine to do the job.

    PS: thanks!

    A very fine or super fine Scotchbrite belt on a belt grinder will remove all traces of patina that aren't actually pitted.
