    This reminds me, I need to find my replacement blades. The ones in all of mine are toast. I might just swap them out with the ones that DGX carries with ceramic blades.

    Well, I did an all right job knocking a lot of it off with green scrub pad (scotch brite I guess) and then some 150 grit sandpaper. I can tell you what not to use - dremel with wire brush. Some of that is rust in the plastic, not just rust on the plastic, so we will see what happens.

    This reminds me, I don't know where my replacement blades are.

    This. I coat the whole thing before installing blade. Works great to extend life of blade.

    Thanks for the reminder about the ceramic blade upgrade. I already put my replacement blades into mine, so I guess I'll order this now so I don't forget again.

    I don't think the ceramic blades fit the trilobites. I think it's just the other cutter that DGX carries, so you can't swap them into a trilobite.

    You're right. I ordered the dgx cutter. It was only $16 for the whole thing.

    What ever happen to Durashine? The use to sand down a car door, paint and x on it with Durashine, stake it out in the ocean surf for a week and when they pulled it out, MAGIC, no rust on the x they painted. I nee that on my dive blades.

    I rinse my shears and trilobites after each trip and before the shears get put away I cut a penny in half with them if they break then they couldn't be counted on if I needed them.

    Just my 1 & 1/2 cents.
