Does the Coca Cola trick work for rusty knives as well?

I have a boline that I want to sell, but I will have to remove the rust - first.

Cheers,
Webwitch :-)

What HAVE you been doing with it?
You know - dried blood often just needs a brillo pad ;-)

Hmmm ... well, I'd rather not go into exactly what I've been doing with it, if you don't mind. ;-)

I have always found it easy to remove blood, its rust that's got me stumped.

Cheers,
Webwitch :-)

I've used Coca-Cola on an iron pot with success. And someone else here recommended using a raw potato to rub on a rusty cauldron. There is also a product called Calcium/Lime/Rust Remover I know works pretty well. I suppose it depends on how bad it is & if you can keep the "edge" so it will still harvest.

At catering college we cleaned the rust of our kitchen knifes with jiff and a cork, rub some oil into the knife afterwards.

If you want to use the cauldron over a heat source, after removing the rust, then paint is of no use whatsoever. What needs to be used is a substance called Zeebrite. Blacksmiths use it for making iron tools like fire pokers, look nice and shiny.

So, remove the rust and then apply some Zeebrite and your cauldron will look like new.

Bit of an idle question, coz there's no way i need this kind of stuff yet.......too many books to move, let alone light a fire! But where does one get things like a cauldron and the right knife when you want them? Can't believe the local hardware shop? Do people go to fairs and come back clanking or what?
Happy thoughts to all

Fairs, new age shops, & the internet. I always ask for paper catalogs to be mailed to me if the website offers; or search the back of witchy, new age and herbal magazines (sold at new age shops & bookstores) for adds and write for catalogs. Junk shops & "kitchen decor" stores can sometimes be a resource.

New moon occult shop sells quite a few things, including cauldrons, incense materials from Pans Pantry, other items from the Sorcerers Apprentice. Interknife do athames to order. Cloaks, knives and beautiful chalices from Stagman Creations and hand made to order cloaks from Intrinsic Magick, all of which are online and all of which accept payment by cheque if you don't have a credit card.

There are other sources to be looked at, too, it just depends on what you want.

Cheers,
Webwitch :)

My cauldron, a 17th century cast-iron one, came from a junk shop, chalice, silver came from the same place at a different time. My knife is a lovely old wooden and iron piece, an old pruning knife with a curved blade (appropriate - I'm a gardener!!) Must have picked it up somewhere - can't remember where! My pent is a fossil sea-urchin found on the beach - a beautiful round pinky-gold stone with 5 arms marked in it. Just look around - you don't need to go out with a credit card, just browse until you find the right things.
