n00b question. does rust matter


Recommended Posts

probably a dumb question but i train in my garage.  i have a bunch of steel i bend and some of it has begin to slightly rust.  Does this matter at all?  i moved my stuff inside temporarily until i find out if it weakens the steel or something.  I dont care about aesthetics i just want as safe and consistent bends as possible.  I like my grip implements slightly rusted of course as anyone would for seasoning purposes but i figured bending may be the opposite.

Some surface rust shouldn’t affect it. Pitting will obviously make it weaker depending on the depth.
