I know it's been a year and a half, but after a divorce, custody battle, and rebuilding my house I haven't had a chance until now to look over the damage to my collection. My whole collection got submerged in a 5 foot mixture of salt, fresh, and sewage water. We threw 98% of everything we owned away, but everything I couldn't bring myself to trash I threw into a storage unit planning to go back to it in a month or two. Which brings us to now. I have a large number of blades in terrible shape, and I'd like to try and salvage them in the best way possible. Most of them seem to have retained their edge, and the one I picked out to experiment on still chops like a champ, but they look like something I dug out of an old archaeological site. What's the best way to deal with the rust and damage done? Are they a lost cause or can I save them? I've included pictures of just one of them, but they all look pretty similar.
