So it seems that my body just promotes rust. I've had a couple days off so I've been carrying mine, and it looks as though just the act of putting my hands in my pocket that the knife is in, is enough to get rust on any part of the knife that I've made contact with. That's the best I can figure is happening since the spine of the knife is really starting to turn brown. Then there's the area around the thumb hole you can almost see my fingerprint around the hole from opening it. I'm guessing it's salt in the oil from my skin causing rust.
Still no issues with the edge breaking down, but I also haven't cut anything acidic lately. For those who are concerned about rust, it seems the Tuf Glide is working flawlessly on the tang so if you want complete rust prevention, that's an option.
