Evaporust is a product that a lot of machinists use. They soak parts in it or just wipe it on and it seems to work good and it doesn't hurt your skin. Just a thought.

Re: Blades, a German and a nice curved Belgian made, one.

The straight saber appears to be a cavalry quill-back combat weapon (that is if that is a rivet through the handle--there should be two). If it is, there might be a unit mark on the basket hilt. More photos please.
