I’m not familiar with Japanese armour, but for European stuff to remove rust I use WD-40 and #000 steel wool. For stubborn rust WD-40 with various grades of wet/dry sandpaper. I’ve found stubborn cake rust can be scrapped off with brass having an edge. I did this just the other day when I found a spot of rust forming on the backside of a chape and refused to come completely off with the steel wool. In that case I used WD-40 and a brass key.
As for preventing rust I use a closed container, a trash bag will due, and moth balls. Leave the container so that it can breathe.

lebleuchevalier: Red, my method is to call Stelio Kontos when there is a problem.

redscorpion: The best approach is mixed MA- learn karate to fight with the hands, Thai boxing to fight with the feet and legs, learn Brazilian JJ for the ground, and Western boxing and wrestling when it comes to fists and grapples. Then by a gun.

redscorpion: I've been studying Filipino MA through an old Army bud of mine (until I blew my knee out). It's good for what it is, but it's not the ultimate fighting style. It's a great academic study,and a good tool to have in my bag of tricks.

nerdthenord: That's awesome. One of my female friends (who I had a huge crush on until she politely turned me down last year. We are still good friends though) is half Filipino so I am interested in their stuff.

lebleuchevalier: Actually, I did some dry runs with this tonight and it thrusts remarkably well.

AndiTheBarvarian: Thrusting with it may be challenging.

lebleuchevalier: If you're referring to that shameless showoff, Legolas, he had two knives strapped to his back. And that elephant (Tolkien called them oliphants) only counted as one!
