Rust on good kitchen knives

I've inherited a set of high-end knives that were treated poorly: washed in the dishwasher, not dried properly. So they have spots of rust here and there, and the knifeblade is a little pitted. I can take care of the pitting with a couple of decent sharpenings, but I'm not sure of the best procedure to get rid of the rust spots. If I use an abrasive like steel wool, it will leave tiny scratches in the metal, won't it? Is there something I can soak them in to get off the rust?

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
