That's awesome @bigwheel
Wonder if someone with a special knife polishing skill might want to pony up some of his/her retirement money for this jewell?

If this item is in the "heirloom" category, I wouldn't do anything to it. In fact, depending on its age and value I might not even polish out minor surface rust. A pit might be deeper than perceived.
Having said that, I know lots of guys who got a knife handed down to them by their grandfathers and decided to use the knife in the field. To that I would watch the metal parts for this surface rust. If it's this old it might be more non-stainless steel.
I've seen some knives that were placed into their sheaths for storage, and had the blade pit.

Very nice. Looks to me like it came straight from Middle-earth, or leastwise best of the best from Cutlery Corner.
$239.95 in retail value, i'd say.
Best kept over the mantle. Don't sell.
Let us use the time as best we may.
It's a beaut Clark
