Question Cleaning the Blade after Heat Treatment?

OK I have tried to find out this answer using the search function to no avail. This is my first knife. I have just heat treated a blade of 1084 and oil quenched it. The blade had very little scaly material on it but it turned black. It is in the oven now tempering. What is the best way to remove the black color without scratching up the blade? Is Very fine sandpaper the way to go to get the nice shiny silver color back? Thanks in advance.
