Great job KH!!! When you pulled out the steel wool and polishing compound I thought Oh No but you value the old as you should. I did not see a makers mark. I ruined several of my oldest knives restoring them before I learned the virtue of preserving the old character of items. I now only use the old pencil lead cleaning method of all rust on items. It is magic as you probably know. You made that knife look better than new and preserved all it's character. KUDOs!!!!

Nothing magic here. Take any old pencil and rub it over the rusted or darkened area on an old knife blead, especially the stamped areas. Then just wipe the area with a clean cloth or paper towel. You do not remove any metal and it cleans the area up a lot. I guess the physical rubbing and some action of the rust with the graphite in the pencil lead does the trick. You keep the aged patina of the blade but make stamps more readable and blades cleaner.

It is supposed to work on wood stampings as well.  But wood wears faster than metal, so it doesn't always "raise" the stamping.
