I got an old rusted K-Bar from an auction and decided to clean it up. It went pretty good but I would like to take it the last step. Two things:

1. How do I polish the blade to a bright steel shine? So far I have worked 400 grit down to 600 grit down to steel wool. Thinking about a polishing disk and a dremel. Thoughts?

2. Tips on how to restore the leather handle?
