Default Walloon sword 17th century

Dear All,

just acquired this classical walloon sword today. The blade shows the passauer wolf as well as the inscription "S A H A G O M".
The iron condition is amazingly good for its 350 years, only few pittings.

I plan to fix the grip wires but I am not sure if I should remove the rust, which is just loose surface rust and would be easy and gently to remove using e.g. steel wool.
What is your opinion on this? Leave it as found or clean it?

Best regards
