    Has anyone ever taken apart a case knife to clean. It is easy to sharpening, but I would like to take apart and clean.  I see the three brass pins but I don’t know if I need to knock them out to get to the internal of the knife or if the chrome ends just pop off if using a little force.  Don’t want to ruin the knife, just need a little advice if you can. Thanks.  Will have pic. but to large of a file.

    I don’t know if that’s a good idea. I think you’d be better off just rinsing it and then blowing it out with compressed air to get it dry.

    Yea i s my personal knife. Don’t want to screw it up even though it is mine.  Can’t find anything on you tube opt anywhere to take one apart. Only thing I see is ship it to case manufacturer.

    Danny, you might want to tackle the job your self.  You can use one of these super erasers available from many sources.  I’d clean up that old beauty.  It’s got to have some sentimental value.  I’d be afraid to return it for repair.  They may just replace it instead under it’s lifetime warranty.  Who’s to know that the new materials and quality of a newer model are as good as that oldie knife.  Besides you’ll learn how to refinish your knife while you’re at.  Then it’ll mean even more to you.

    Hey Marc, are you talking about using the super eraser to clean up the main bevel?  I use mine on my ceramics but that’s all.

    Gee, I hadn’t thought of using the Superaser on rust.  In addition to cleaning my ceramic sharpeners, I use it to remove pencil layout marks from woodworking projects.  Saves a bunch of sanding.

    After reading this I ordered a couple of these even though I have no ceramic anything.  Was hoping I could find some other off label uses other than rust,  and now pencil on wood, which will be wonderful!  Anyone have any other confirmed uses?
