Disassembling the knife.
Disassembling the knife.

Firstly I disassembled the knife and placed metal parts in a vinegar bath for 24 hours. While I was waiting, I sanded the handles. Than applied pigmented oil and sanded again with 800 grit sandpaper.

Pulled out metal parts and cleaned them with cloth. After that I sanded parts and used hand cranked grinder for kife’s spring and blade. Before I assembled the folding pocket knife I polished the blade and spring and also brass plates.

Finally I started assembling the knife, sanded again the handle. Applied another coat of pigmented oil and polished it. Here is how it looks after this restoration. I really like the result.
