714 AP1 Iron Finish

I've been playing my new AP1's since November and they are showing some scratches, wear marks, etc.  I've always kept my irons looking good with 3M & buffing wheels.  Not too sure that will work on the AP1's.  Any recommendations on procedures for keeping my AP1's looking new & scratch free?

Ok, so after no replies, I decided to experiment with one club.  Results were quite satisfactory:  to remove minor scratches and spruce up the finish on my 714 AP1's I used a Scotch-Brite EXL Deburring wheel (8A Medium).  This is the same wheel that is recommended for Titanium faces and soles.  It will not remove any major damage, but I think it will keep my irons looking clean if used frequently (maybe 10-12 rounds).  Also, there was no significant benefit to the appearance by using a cloth buffing wheel.  Hope this info may help other club repair geeks!
