My coated bone cutter had some rust partly due to my laziness of cleaning it with water after each.

It has some rust. I am soaking it with vinegar and the coating had fade away so did some rust after brushing.

However, I can’t get all the rust out as some are “inside” of the part.

Question is, is it safe to use in the tank? I need to trim down one my acros tomorrow.

Isn’t rust is a big no no in a reef tank? But seems like everybody here is ok with it. I cleaned mine today the best I could but I still can see rust juice coming out every time I am doing the cutting motion. Coming out of the connecting part. I only made two cuts so and did a water change afterward.
