i sold a very nice yanagiba to a young chef who promised to take care of it only to find it chipped, covered in food and red rusted out months later.
i felt responsible for the state of this knife so i bought it back and in the process of fixing it back up somewhat.
I put it in the saya only to find out a week later when i took it knife out and the knife is half rusted again that the saya is full of food.
does anyone know of a good method to clean the debris out? then i probably have to disinfect it as well.
or is it trash?
