Taking care of my knife

Sep 3, 1999
Hi, i just got a Benchmade cqc7 as a present from a family member, and i have been using it a lot and its getting shabby looking, does anyone know of a good resource where i can find out howto take care of the knife?

Thanks alot!
What do you mean by shabby? Is the blade all scratched up, handle all scuffed, patina on the bead blast?? If its really bad you could always send it back to BM... but you need to be a bit more specific.
Sorry, the blade is turning greyish/brown, and id like to clean it up also there are 2 tiny chips on it, where its not serrated.

Thanks for responding!
