incidentally, how do you strip the ren wax off the blade. battara recommended nevr-dull before. anything else?
Nev'r Dull is a petroleum based polish .
I remove Ren Wax with acetone and 0000 steel wool , then I scrub the blade in a smooth full length pattern with a paste made from Bar Keeper's Friend or Bon Ami and water applied and rubbed in vigorously with a rag .
After that I wash the blade with a liquid dish soap and rinse with hot water.
Any kind of oil on the blade will ruin an etch .
