Editor's note: A Blade Eraser is basically a rubber eraser combined with a mild abrasive. Use when polish alone isn't quite abrasive enough. These erasers will take light to heavy rust off older blades or tune up a brass bolster that has grown deep green tarnish. I will usually cut these at a hard diagonal, giving me two erasers with one long taper each. I will use this long taper to clean up knife blades where the tang stamps and pattern numbers are close to the bolsters. As the Blade Eraser clogs up, take a razor blade and cut just a small sliver off the surface. This will expose fresh abrasive, giving a quick clean cut. Be aware that lubricants and oil will clog the surface of these erasers quickly; be sure to degrease the surface of your knife before using. If you look for old knives, these will clean a rusty old tang stamp very quickly for field identification in a flea market or garage sale. I used these for years to clean and touch up old rusty knives that I found in Gun Shows, Flea Markets, and Garage Sales. Use the Blade Eraser for heavy tarnish and finish up with polish for a finish polish.
