How do you remove a sterling handle from a stainless knife blade to scrap the sterling part?
After much trial and error, I found the best way was to pound a screwdriver end into the joint between handle and blade, and then use two pliers at the same time to twist them apart. Then I took small snippers, made a small clip at the top of the handle, and began coiling the strip of silver around the snippers (like opening a sardine can). However, depending on the type of weighting, it may not be necessary to remove the blades at all!
I found that knives in the same set had two different types of weighting--either a metal core that didn't extend to the bottom of the knive or plaster stuff that filled in the whole thing. Once I found that out, I started testing the decorative end of the knife with an awl and hammer to see if it was hollow at the bottom. If it wasn't, I used the method noted above. However, if it was, I started by snipping and coiling at the BOTTOM end of the handle. In this manner, I was able to "coil off" the silver without detaching the metal core from the blade at all!
That is one way to do it. If you are just scrapping the silver, you don't have to be that careful with it. I use a method taught to me by a silversmith who does all of my silver repair, and used to work for Tiffany. See the link below for complete, step-by-step instructions.
I have a full set of WM A. Rogers AA heavy Oneida LTD. Flatware... It says on the back of the knives "STAINLESS". I hope this answers your question. I have a similar set of flatware and the "Stainless" on the knife means the blade is stainless. However, the handle and other parts of set could be stainless or silverplate. WM A Rogers did mostly silver plated flatware, not sterling silver. If it tarnishes it…

Most sword blades are metal, using a bit of oil on a pad of steel wool (DO NOT USE SOAP PADS) rubbed gently along the blade will not only remove paint it will remove rust as well. If the paint is on the handle or scabbard , removing paint will depend entirely on what the handle and/or scabbard are made of.
A pocket knife with a hinge attaching the blade to the handle so that the blade can swing outwards to use or swing inwards into the handle where it can be stored. However the blade does not have a locking mechanism to keep the blade in a closed position. The locking mechanism is not needed for it takes a bit of force to pull out the blade; however, it is recommended for safety precautions.

To replace the rear wiper blade on a Chrysler Pacifica, you must first remove the old blade. You can remove it by pushing the small blade that holds the wiper in place up, and push the blade back. Once the blade is free from the hook remove it. Put the new blade in position so the hook is in position to go over the wiper attachment. Clip it into position and you are done.
