It depends Anthony.

Personally, I leave older blades alone as much as possible, a scratch here & there, a little bit of stain missing, in my opinion it is completely immaterial, its old, it does not need to be perfect, it is not on display. I accept a little bit of imperfection as normal. Every time you clean and stain you erode the blade just a little bit more. Perfection is not normal, not required in older blades.
