Okay bought rusty knife at garage sale, now what?

How do I get the rust off? I bought a Dexter Russell 1376R ( 6" boning knife) for 25 cents. The old man tried to screw me by charging me 50 cents but I talked him back down to reality by purchasing some Golden Books also.

I know it's not an expensive knife but it is my first carbon steel and since it was so cheap, I don't really care if it gets damaged. There is no sharp edge on it at all.

I tried wd40 but it hasn't really worked. Any good suggestions before I try everything on the net?

Thanks,
