Use steel wool to clean off any surface rust that shows up and put a very light coating of oil on them using a rag. Crampons can be sharpened using a flat file but again, do not sharpen them to a point. Sharp points could cause them to break, so just sharpen them enough to do the job you need them to do.
My hiking crampons have got spots of rust on them. Can anyone recommend a way to clean it off that’s not further damaging? At this point it’s surface rust.
