    Cleaning discoloration/patina off Ichimonji TKC, Kikuichi TKC and CarboNext knives

    Any hints or tips?

    Thanks!

    Hi Lyle! I use a tin of Nevr-Dull from Canadian Tire to do my polishing. 10 bucks, comes as pre-soaked wadding, and one tin lasts forever.

    for light patina, standard metal polish like Simichrome or polishing paper does the trick.

    BKF does a swell job. Just don't leave it on there too long or it'll start picking up a yellow patina

    bkf with a combo of baking soda to stop the bkf will do quite well cheap too.

    BKF works, sort of. Semichrome or Metal Glo works much better.

    There is a thread, here: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...ing-the-patina

    I don't bother with cleaning the patina very often, but when I do, I use Flitz polish. Does a great job.

    Bkf works well, its cheap and readily available.

    I prefer Mother's Mag polish. It's less than half the price of Flitz, works better in my opinion, and won't etch metal the way BKF (oxalic acid) can if you're not careful.
