Can't see a benefit of clubface in that condition. 00 steel wool will do the trick Joe it should make rust disappear. Maraging or blending of materials was used some years ago to achieve a greater hardness in clubface.
I've spent most of my playing days in the rough and yes, at times deep rough. I play a hooded 5 iron with a set-up of ball between belly button and back foot - keep hands ahead of clubhead throughout swing and finish swing with hands low.
I've seen Tiger on the practice range using a rolled up towel stretched across his chest held under each armpit. He was hitting iron shots and towel stayed in place. Not sure what you accomplish by this.
It takes years to build a solid, upstanding reputation but only a few words to destroy it.
