After doing a bit of browsing around here tonight, I have found that a lot of people have gotten their Takeda knives to be somewhat rust proof.
I have a lot of issues with rust on mine, where it will rust within a matter of minutes. Does anyone have good advice on trying to get the rust levels down to a minimum? Also I haven't noticed a lot of patina activity. When it did rust, I used a green scotch bright pad to take it off. Was this a mistake?
