New black/brown stains on 1897 mauser bayonet
Help! I have a swedish mauser bayonet that got wet and was left in the scabbard for no more than two days. It now has terrible, stubborn black/brownish rusty looking stains that ive removed from the surface with steel wool but look as if they are soaked into the blade. The blade is sticking when removed from the scabbard, so the filth is inside the scabbard as well. I dont know how this happened so quickly. How do I fix this! Any advice will help. Much obliged
