I put this in the wrong thread


Recommended Posts

Hi Frank,

Here is a link to a care and cleaning brochure you should read twice:


Don't be in a hurry for a new polish; they are expensive and very easily damaged in the hands of someone without experience in handling the sword. The polish doesn't protect the sword; clean off the old cosmoline with some alcohol and a soft cloth and then apply a very light coat of machine oil to the surface (except for the tang) and all will be fine. Take some time to learn a lot more before you start throwing money at your sword. The more you know the happier you'll be with the results when you do have the work done.

If you'd like someone you can ask a dozen questions at once with feel free to call.

Your uncle, or whoever brought it back, was smart enough to cover it in cosmoline or some other form of grease.   If you take a soft cloth with some acetone, you might be able to clean that off pretty easily and you may be surprised to find that the blade is in pretty good shape, having been protected by the grease.
