    No you should not be too worried about it. If it is not too much rust,then it can be taken care of. I just use those circular sponges)(well they are not sponges)(it is kind of difficult to discribe :help: ) that are used to clean pots and pans and it gets rid of the rust quite easily.

    Think he means Brillo.

    One or two spots isn't going to effect the integrity of the blade too much. Performance wise, as long as the rust is not on the edges of the blade you will be fine.

    Which kind of blade guards were you using?

    If it's not on the blade edge, I wouldn't worry about it. I'd try to stop it from progressing, I have no idea how to do that, though.

    Basically I have no advice.
