Ermm lol not a clue, try gaviscon? Lmao no don't actually use gaviscon, but toothpaste may work, it's mildly abrasive but may take some cleaning to remove it so use it sparingly, and rub softly.
Ps this is a disclaimer and toothpaste is micks idea. I hold no responsibility for any mess ups made :|
Ps I used it on my autumn bamboo kat and there was no ill effect

Lol to be honest it's not a major problem, stains scuffs chips and dents are common, stains being the least of your problems, high carbon steel is prone to rust and stains. No need to panic, the integrity of the sword is not at risk, and each tells a story long after it's owner is dead. That's a quote to the best of my memory?
Ps fruit ninja is best on iPhone not in your kitchen with £200 worth of steel lol

Not sure, but watermellons are used in some demonstrations, but acidic fruit are a poor choice, I would have used bananas, but I'm daft and :roll: I'm not sure what they would have done to the steel lol

that polish is on its way, i did cut a milk carton and coke bottle in half quite fun indeed, i did manage to cut the bottle cap clean off first time ;) any other items that are good to use? im going to have to invest in some mats and a stand for them.

might have to try this ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nj1Jytiw ... re=related
