As you may remember, a little over a month ago, around March 20th, I posted about losing a knife.
Well, about 1.5 weeks ago, I got a text with a picture from a friend I had visited and helped the day I lost it.
Yup! Found, amazingly intact, in his driveway, close to where I’d parked!
Took a week til last Sunday, for me to get to meet up with him and get it.
As I said, it is amazingly intact, and unhurt, for having laid in a snowy, gravely driveway for over a month!
But it isn’t unhurt either. A fair amount of rust has been acquired, although a lot of it surface rust.
The main clip blade was unopenable without repeated efforts, and some mud removal. Amazingly the secondary spear blade was stiff, but came open easilly. And is astoundingly unmarked except one small spot.
I’ll be doing a good and thorough cleaning soon, and put it back into rotation.
All will be easy enough to clean off, except the thicker corrosion on the inner side of the springs. It looks to be a loose easily removed surface rust, a flaky scale. But its location and thin limited access will make it difficult.
