I have 2 good knives that I have gotten lumps, & smears of super glue on while cutting off the tips on the glue bottles. One blade is a black finish, the other is plain metal. What should I use to get the glue off the blade?

Thanks for any serious help.
to any silly comments.

Nail Polish remover is "supposed" to take it off - at least that's what the wife says.

Nailpolish remover, I know you got some.

or goto a hobbie store and get some "Debonder"

Soak in either acetone or methylene chloride for twenty four hours. This might not actually dissolve away completely the cross-linked polymer, but it should soften it enough to make possible the removal of the glue.

Berryman's b-12 carbuerator cleaner, don't get it on the handles because if they're glued-on they will fall off.

Grinder sander sand blaster files.
Any one of them will remove any trace of the glue.
Glad you added the silly answers category.

Actually I'm glad you asked. I have some super glue on a ff tube that I've been trying to remove.

Don't let the acetone touch and plastic, or it will begin to melt.

I have an old Swiss Army knife with my thumbprint permanently embedded in it due to acetone.  Cool!

Chip it off with another knife

I agree with trying to chip it off. What ever you do report back to us if it stained or made and changes in the black blade. I have never owned a knife with that type blade and have always wondered how durable the finish is.
