So, after six years of sitting in storage, I pulled my fencing equipment out of storage today. Surprisingly, my mask doesn't have a spot of rust on it (though it sounds like it'll be out-of-date in a year anyway), but unsurprisingly my foil and epee blades are all coated in surface rust.
Are these blades salvageable with some oil and a scrubby-pad? I certainly don't want to have to toss all of my blades if I don't have to.
What do y'all think?
