I just stumbled upon this video of a laser being used to clean a large metal object and was wondering if anyone else knew about this. If one had access to the laser, you could get a shiny blade within seconds...if you didn't have engraving or goldwash to worry about.

It appears to react to the carbonized plastic on the mold surface. Many lasers are set to certain frequencies to remove stuff from various metals without damage. It might work for rust and crud removal.
Not cheap though unless you have a buddy in a plastic injection plant...that you would trust not to smoke your favorite blade.

Maybe you could set it for a safe frequency for a very, very BBS shave.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. Then what about laser honing for an everlasting edge?
