I'll admit, I'm a knife newbie. I have a new yanagiba made from white steel. I used it, set it down for maybe 10 minutes. It was barely damp. It now has rust spots. Is this normal?

follow up question, would this MAC Yanagiba be more user friendly (ie no rusting)? I can't tell if the blade is stainless or some variant. Thanks for the help.

Yes, that is normal. Carbon doesn't require much care. It just requires it right away. You need to wipe the blade off as soon as you are done cutting with it. White steels do tend to be a little more reactive than most, in my experience anyways(nothing like iron cladding... what brand do you own?). However, 2 seconds of care after cutting shouldn't be enough reason to want to buy a different knife, imo. A little bar keepers friend will take the rust right off so no big worries.

Words of advice, take the rust off sooner than later. ;)

bar keepers friend(home depot) is what I use, but flitz(Wal-Mart) or any other metal polish should work.

You polish it off...with a high grit compound or powder after you're done.

I'm amazed this question isn't a sticky here by now (with all the new knives)...other than the answer, you let it turn black, patina.

...ie: "I don't like patina", how do I get rid of the rust on my knife?

How do I keep it looking new? :?

There is an easy answer......look above, 4 lines up.

Completely agree...this type of question is asked enough that a sticky would be nice

It would make sense to me, seeing as people spend big $ on knives...they'd probably want to keep them looking good.

:?

Or at least some kind of option...other than, you have to let it patina.

Patina isn't normal...patina is less than proper maintenance.
