NicS Posted 22 April , 2016 Share Posted 22 April , 2016 So I just received a 1907 bayonet today that I order and it is in fantastic condition however the only issue I have is that when I drew it from its scabbard to inspect it further the blade was coated and had large deposits of what I assume to be old grease that was used to store the blade previously. Is it possible for me to clean this off with a lint-free towel and not ruin the value since I'm wanting to use Renaissance wax on the blade? Also what would be the best way to get any leftover grease out of the scabbard? Any help would be greatly appreciated since this is the first bayonet with a scabbard I've gotten so I'm hesitant to do anything to it. EDIT: After doing some reading online it seems like this might be Cosmo (?) and have read suggestions people have made about pouring boiling water in the scabbard and stuff like that. Personally that seems like something that would harm the scabbard. I may be wrong but I don't know. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
