My choice is bar keepers friend. It works really well taking off a little surface rust from carbon steel knives.
If you don't have that soapy water and a scrubby pad will do the job or even comet.
If you're in a humid area of HI I would also recommend a drop of oil on the knife when you put it away. If you use it frequently it's not a problem but carbon knives will rust in the drawer if it's in a humid area over time.

Another option is Flitz.
Be sure to wash it good, and oil it if in a humid area, after you clean it.

I wonder if bar keeper's friend is made in small packets? If they did it like that I would sell it on the site for people that live in the middle of nowhere and wanted some for their knives for .25 cents or something like that.

MARK <> It wouldn't be difficult to make your own cryovacs; busy work for someones kid.
ROB <> BKF is awesome & other abrasive powders like Comet work, but I'd stay away from any with bleach in them. BonAmi is the closest you'll get to BKF in a supermarket.
I like to use straight Baking Soda as an abrasive powder for rust removal, as well.

a large container only cost a few dollars, might as well scour the kitchen sink while at it, at least I do, hardly seems worth the leg work. one would simply be paying for packaging.

I get bar keepers at the local Home Depot.

I saw a 3-pack at Costco this past weekend for under 5 bucks. I also use it on my stainless pots and pans to get out the stubborn stains. It's pretty much everywhere here in CA. Supermarkets, walmart, home supply stores, etc. A container will last forever at my current rate of use.
