If you find that instead of becoming dull one of your knife blades becomes rusty, try this neat little idea. Just grab a fresh onion and start chopping up the onion with the blade of the rusty knife. Make sure you chop with the part that is rusty. This action will help in a couple of ways. First, the juice from the onion will help loosen the rust. Second, the action of rubbing the now-juiced rust stain against the onion will help rub the rust out. With most rust stains, one onion will remove all of the rust from your knife.
