kitchen knife maintenance - clean a Stainless steel knife

Stainless steel does not rust easily.
But they will become dirty or rusty if used for many years.

The yellow part is the thin oxide.

These dirt and rust, you can clean with a metal polishing liquid.
(With this you can clean without damaging the knife blade.)

This is a cotton soaked into metal polishing liquid.

Please wash enough with kitchen soap before using.

Be careful! if you polish too much, damascus blade's layers will be blurred.

If you polish the laser print too much, letters may disappear as this picture.
