How to clean and maintain swords or other carbon steel blades

How to clean and maintain swords or other carbon steel blades

People have asked for it, so here it is. A video demonstrating how I clean my blades after test cutting , wood chopping, etc, and how to keep them rust free.

This is not about sharpening, just cleaning / maintenance and (to a lesser extent) storage. Specifically about how I remove stains, rust and scratches.
A sword sharpening video may come in the future, when I’ve become better at it.

Hopefully this is helpful for beginners to weapon / tool collecting.
