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.

Zoinks!

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

Ain't dat da truth. ... I bought a carbon steel pan a while ago and hung it up on my kitchen rack which admittedly is close to the always open window. Next time I looked, this is what I had:

Yeah, sorry about that... Didn't I read somewhere that soaking it in Coke helps. I hope that Coke zero works also, 'cause that's what I've got...

There is a product called CLR (calcium, lime,rust) that is availably in Canada, pretty much dissolves either, not sure if it is available in the US though... It would give you a great head start.

Coke Zero is acidic, so it should do just fine. that's a lot of rust, though, so the mentioned CLR (which is available in Ohio, at least) might be worth tracking down.

The ingredient is phosphoric acid. It desolves the rust and replaces it with iron phosphate, which protects from future rust. Jasco makes some metal prep that does the same thing without the sticky residue.

Yes i would like to see some afters as well. I would think the posters would have done something ASAP as leaving anything in red-rusted condition like that is going to lead to the worst nightmare...

PITTING!!!!!

I'm surprised there's so little pitting left. Great job.
I don't get it, though...WHY would anyone put a knife in the dishwasher? Knives are the easiest thing in the kitchen to wash. It's probably harder to jam the knife into the dishwasher while trying to find a place for it than to rinse it and dry it.
