I am using this to polish out a water stain on my TKC, it is working, more or less, but it isn't getting the stain out completely. I have used paper towel, a plastic scrubby, a blue scotch brite pad, and a microfiber towel. Am I having unreasonable expectations of this Flitz polish to get the stain out or am I using the wrong approach? I was thinking I would try a small hand sander with a felt pad next.

If I can't count on this polish to work completely is there another option?

I had photos, but they are too big to attach.

Forgive my ignorance, polishing knives has never been something I really do a lot of.

Simichrome is more aggressive.

If you're going to have to remove metal to remove the stain.....I wouldn't. Flitz removes surface imperfections.....Bar Keepers Friend does about the same.

Never used the Simichrome TDS recommended though.

Try using baking soda and a liitle water. Use a wine cork to apply and polish.
