Though intended for Guns and Knives, this Flitz metal polishing paste works equally well on swords, daggers and armor. This Flitz polishing paste will remove tarnish on a variety of metals and will remove rust on steel. Please be aware that no polishing paste can fix visible pitting on steel when rust is more severe, but it will remove the rust that is causing the pitting. Do not use on blued components that have been blued via a chemical process as polishing pastes are liable to remove it as if it was surface tarnish.

What is the shelf-life of Flitz Polish?
Flitz polish has an indefinite shelf life as long as it’s kept in a cool dry area. When placing cans in storage, store them upside down. This reduces the amount of mixing that may be needed prior to use. If the polish is runny, simply mix like you would a can of paint. Whether liquefied or creamy, the results from the product will not ruin its performance and still accomplish the polishing needed.
* PLEASE NOTE: If you are not sure if your sword or firearm has components that were factory hot blued, please do NOT use Flitz Paste Polish on it. Most newer firearms are finished with an oxide bluing or cold bluing. Flitz Polish will treat this just like tarnish and REMOVE it. If you’re not sure, simply clean the your firearm with Flitz Tactical Matte Finish Cleaner and finish with the Flitz Gun & Knife Wax or Flitz Ceramic Sealant.
