    Hello everyone.  I’m not much of a tool guy, but I like antiques and recently was lucky enough to buy an old wood box full of Ward & Payne woodworking tools, 46 to be exact.  They come in various shapes and sizes and most have the Ward & Payne stamp in the steel, which comes from Sheffield, England.  After some research, I’m guessing that the tools come from the mid to late 1800’s.  This guess is coming from the logo and the age of other items found with this box.  The box is also super old.  The condition is really excellent as none of the wood has split and the steel has some signs of rust at most.  My question is, what is the best way to eliminate the small amount of rust, protect the tools for the future, but still keep the patina and look for future generations?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
