+1 for Kroil bath. Also, give the grips a wipe down with mineral spirits and, if needed, a very light coat of BLO.

+2 on this. Soak it in Kroil and after a week or so break out the bronze wool soaked in Kroil & bring the metal back to life.

I have no idea what to try on the scabbard.

Regarding he scabbard, I think I would try lacquer thinner and a nylon detail brush (old tooth brush) to get rid of the white paint. You may never get rid of it all, and it may possibly remove the green as well. For the purists, it is already damaged, so the question is, will removing the white make it less valuable?

Big bore 45 pads will do a great job on the metal without damaging it is possible to remove most rust with very little loss even on blued surfaces.

I have a 1909 SA that came out remarkably well and did the same thing to a rust 1912 S A blued bayonet.

S A and RIA didn't start parkerizing till 1918 but some bayonets in service were blued in Europe.

You could try some blue Dawn dish soap...,apply to the painted area liberally and let it soak, but not dry out. Give a couple hours and then try a stiff brush to remove the paint. May have to repeat. This technique worked for me on a old canvas hunting jacket.., still left a discolored area but was a big improvement.

I recommend a product called Fluid Film rather than wd40 for the rust. It's a great product and is available at your nearest John Deere dealer. You can also use it to cure ringworm on livestock.

+1 to the electrolysis tank. Low voltage cell phone charger.... just did a bolo this weekend in similar shape. Low and slow is the key. It left the bluing, but the rust is gone. If you run it too hot, it will peel the finish.

Thanks for the replies. So far I have separated the canvas cover from the wooden liner, but have had to stop for a while. Too many vehicles in my "stead" have needed repairs lately, and I'm too cheap / frugal to send them to a shop. Hopefully I will get back to this combo soon.

Nice. 2 of my nicest ones were scored at pawn shops too. 1906 was first year of production.
