Hey guys, so I scored an old Ibanez RG 550DX on the bay, and the knife edges on the Edge Lo Pro trem are a little rusty. What is the safest way to clean them?

Thanks!

A Dremel with a grinding tip works well, and lets you get the edges good and sharp.
that will also grind away the hardened outer layer of metal, leaving you a soft knife edge that will quickly be ruined by the pressure of the strings. :nono

you want to clean it without removing metal, so look at wire brushes or solvents.
