My wife found her Fathers old Case Trapper in a box of stuff.

She asked I clean it up. I have most of the grime and crud off of it.

It was a well used knife, the blades have been sharpened (not professionally) and it shows.

What can I use to restore the luster of the bone?

Thank you.

Some good info here. I picked up an old Klein electrician's knife at a flea market over the weekend for $2.65. Other than being a little dirty, it appears to be in great shape. I'd like to clean it up and give it to my son, who's an electrician.

I'd just clean the dirt off it. Gently. No scratchy Scotch Brite or sandpaper. I wouldn't try to polish to bone or the steel. You'll fuck it up and remove years of genuinely acquired patina and love.

Might try just carrying it in your pocket. Personally I put a bit of oil on my hand (bacon grease) rub that into the bone, and put it in my pocket with my change. Give it the same treatment a couple times. It's how it got the original finish, why not more of the same?
