In this instructable, I will show my way of easily cleaning a hunting knife, swiss army knife, whittling knife, etc... Remember to give me a +1!
First thing, after using a knife and it gets dirty, don't close it (if its a closing knife). The reason is because stuff like dirt, tree sap, what eve...
Turn a tap on hot and wait for it to heat up. Once it is as hot as it gets, place the blade under the water for 30 seconds, rotating it.
Take an old electric tooth brush, and brush all along the blade, with some pressure. Do the same thing with both sides.
Rinse the blade the same way you did in step 2, to make sure it's immaculately clean.
Dry the blade with a towel making sure that the sharp edge is facing away from the towel, not towards. Any make SURE that the blade is fully dried.
Your blade should now be as shiny as new! Remember to give this instructable a +1!
