    Whats the best way to repair scratches in a matte stainless finish? Holster use and I believe just general wear has put many light starches in my matte finish. I cant polish it because that would take away the dull finish.

    Just thinking off the top of my head here.. Maybe a FINE steel wool?? :huh:

    Steel wool will leave swirl marks... You need to have it lightly blasted, or you could use steel wool, sand paper or a ss brush and just do it in one direction and It would have a brushed SS look...
