    That's actually not as bad as I would expect for going through the dishwasher. I frequently get stainless knives to sharpen which look like that. I can't imagine how people can still think it's appropriate to put a knife through the washer when it comes out looking like that. Besides a bit of pitting, though, it looks like that rust will come off easily. Good luck fixing it up, you'll have to show us how it turns out.

    Damn! At least it will look all badass and well used once it's cleaned up.

    Doesn't this belong over in the "patina" thread?

    A good thing, it has plenty of flesh for refinish.

    The edge seems to have avoided the worst of it. Wonder why that is.
