Hello, just wondering how folks here clean their carbon steel knives.
I recently purchased a Mora Clipper, and although I've found plenty of information about sharpening the blade, I'm unsure of how best to clean it.
I used it for the first time the other day, and already it has some stains and marks on the blade. Is it safe to use soapy water? If so, what is best to use to scrub off the dirt?
I also understand that oil can be used to create a protective layer on the blade?
Thanks for reading, I'd love to hear any tips people have as it's my first proper bushcraft knife, and I want to maintain it properly!
