Brass or steel wire?
If it is something for your pocket, cool, but everyone should keep in mind that old knife collectors want the knives gently cleaned and usually freak out when any power tools or abrasives are used to clean up an old knife.

Ultra-fine steel wheel.
As used for carding blued finishes when they come out of the hot blue tank.
And the same one I use on old Winchester restorations.
It takes the rust all off and stops it, without removing all the patina or making them shiny again.
It is better then letting the deep rust continue to eat away the blades for future generations.

is the sunfish similar to the Case Elephant Toe? ...
I'm just kinda dabbling in Case knives, bought 2 this past week in Branson.
a SS Sod Buster with blue scales and a CS Humpback Whittler with red scales..
I picked these up for a good price and sent them to Case for repair, somebody had etched what looked like the last four numbers of their SSN.
No Charge from Case. Give them a call or email they answered mine the next day and see what they say.
