MAC Superior Santoku Parer Update

Sorry to start a new thread but forum rules preclude updates to threads that are 'too old'. The related thread had 6 replies and some 400+ views.
The subject knife resharpens well, to close to razor sharpness (about a dozen strokes on a Spyderco ultrafine ceramic stone). Such resharpening is required after prepping enough food for 2 meals. However, apparently due to the low chromium content of it's blade steel, this knife incurs stains on the blade from the rubber snubbers that are part of the poly knife-safe that the blade is stored in.
Polishing these stains out with Flitz can become a chore. Perhaps I should go back to the carboard sheath that this knife came in.
Knife-safe blade protectors have an advantage over push/slip on blade sheaths in that they can be cleaned if an inadeqately cleaned blade is stored in them.

I'd just let it patina, but that's me.

Low chrome = staining. Fact. of. Life.

Just let it patina up.

Either that or just get a true Carbon Steel blade and see what staining really is.

I have many non-stainless blades, some over 80 years old. Once they're blackened up they're not much of a problem.
