rust knife

0000 steel wool (very fine, available at hardware stores) wet with a light oil, such as Remoil, or 3-N-1, rub blade until arm falls off, then change hands. Flitz metal polish, or white jewelers rouge on a felt polishing bob in a dremel. The PROPER name should not be stainless steel, but stain less steel. It is rust resistant, NOT rust proof.

c3shooter's suggestions should work. Is it rust or is the blade pitted? You'll be able to remove surface rust but if there's deeper pitting it will leave a mark even after you clean it up.

Do you have any pictures?

You can also try Scotch Brite pads.
