    Today I used my DC BIG AD6 for the first time. Really beat the snot out of it......Well, not really. I cut up a couple microwave burrito for my kids and apparently those things are made out of some pretty terrible stuff because it managed to put a hint of patina on INFI. So I figured it was as good a time as any to give it a steel wool and Blue Magic rubdown to brighten her up.

    I was thinking of hitting mine with some 400 grit, but that looks better and won’t remove as much material.

    Thanks. It took maybe 25 minutes, tops. You kinda have to rub it down, then wash it with soap and water to get all of the blackened polish off so you can see which areas might need a little more attention, then do it again. I probably did that about four times.

    Nice work! Great looking satinish blade. You can never have too much reshine in my mind.
