Hey Accutronman, scratches, stains, chips and all the things we don’t like happening to our blades and scales just happen when we use our knives. There’s no way round it.
I use H-1 a fair bit and it does tend to scratch a bit easier than some other blade steels. That said I have scratches on every blade I use, irrespective of blade steel so I don’t know that any blade is scratch proof.
I think you’ll find it very hard if not impossible to remove even a scratch that is a few tenths of a thousandth of an inch deep with metal polish or a knife eraser and even if you did take the time and effort to remove a couple of scratches with a harsher abrasive it would end up a full time job just keeping scratches at bay.
I’d strongly recommend you just do what you’re doing and enjoy H-1 for the great steel it is. Before long all the scratches, dints, chips etc. blend to become your well used, not abused knife.
