I just ordered a Glock knife in military drab green. It came in today and I opened the packaging at my work desk. The knife had a fair amount of oil on the black blade when I removed it from the scabbard. I picked up a rag and wiped it off. I had just used the rag with denatured alcohol and to my surprise the rag was heavily smudged with black gummy paint. The finish was ruined with one swipe! I spent the better part of an hour trying to remove the softened paint from the blade. I even went over it with polishing compound. The blade now looks like "blued" gun steel. However, you can tell that the metal was never highly finished. I'm surprised that Glock makes them like this, but then again for $35.00 it is just a utility knife. Maybe I'll use it at the next oyster roast. Oh well.
