the same spot is on the other side of the edge as well. it looks like there’s another smaller spot also. none of these spots were there before my trip to the beach today and they aren’t just rubbing off. the knife hasn’t been against any other metal and this isn’t it’s first swim in the ocean. any advice or thoughts on why i’m seeing (what looks a lot like) rust?
It might have picked up a few particles of foreign metal from the grinding process at the factory. That's the only thing I can think of off the bat, at least if it really is rust and not some other thing going on.
Or it could've picked up similar particles if you sharpened it recently on an unwashed stone. The tiny metal particles from previously sharpened knives (swarf) could have become embedded in the LC200N as it was sharpened.
