Rust on sterling flatware? I question the fact that you actually have sterling flatware. Tarnish, maybe, but rust?
Perhaps there might be some rust issue with silver plate knife blades or with the joint where the blade meets the handle but this is just a guess. I never have seen rust on sterling pieces. I welcome comments from readers who have different information.
