In this isntructable,I Will demonstrate the correct,non-damaging,and preserving way to clean a knife.
Step 1: Tools
the knife you need clean;
and a car detailing tool(or an old toothbrush)
Step 2: The Blade
take the brush attachment of the detailing tool or toothbrush and brush away any visible dust or dirt.If you are using a toothbrush,use it very lightly as to not scratch your knife.If there are any stains,use the heavy attachment for the detailer.If the stain is tough to get of,us a very little amount of window and glass cleaner.If using a toothbrush still use the very little amount of cleaner plus scrub a slight bit heavier than usual.
Step 3: The Body
To effectively clean the body of the knife,you will need to get into every nook and cranny.Like the blade,remove the visible dust and dirt with the brush attachment and very light strokes with the toothbrush.Same with heavy stuff,use the tougher attachment and a little bit of window cleaner.With a toothbrush,heavier strokes and little cleaner. now possibly the most important thing to remember for a safe knife you will always want to extensively clean the hinge and place where the knife is folded into!!!If you dont it may end up harder to unfold your knife and eventually not unfolding it at all!!!
