Knife Oil

Hi,
I recently started carrying a utility blade with me. After a few months the flip mechanism is rough and grating. What's a good oil/lube? I'd like to take care of the knife and have it for a long time.

Thanks

BP

I use only Eezox.

Dries and leaves a lubricating film behind.

If dirty enough to feel grit it should be washed with HOT water and blown dry with compressed air and then the Eezox can be used to further displace any water.

After this cleaning I would stick with the Eezox as it seems to help prevent the grit build up for a longer time than some others I have tried in the past.

YMMV of course

Wash it out with hot soapy water first, use a small brush if needed. For oil I use Miltec-1. If you're on a gun forum you probably already have gun oil. Most of those will work just fine. Apply and work the action, then wipe off excess.

I use Tuf-Glide, no residue on clothes or hands, waterproof, doesn't collect dirt or debris, and makes them smooth as silk. You can get it many places, but here's the size and dispenser type I use.

Mist any oil will work just fine. Use the cleaning methods suggested above for the grit.

If the knife is ever to be used for food prep I'll use olive or mineral oil. Everything else gets wiped down with Tuff-Glide. I also use Hoppes Number 9 gun oil from time to time.

I use Ballistol on just about everything. I also agree to wash in hot soapy water, rinse well, and air dry. Then, couple drops on each side and work the action well. Wipe dry and you're good to go!

I use Sentry Solutions Marine Tuf-Glide lubricant. Works like a charm. As the user above stated smooth as silk and no residue once dry.

Picked up some Eezox last week and gave knife a good cleaning and lube. It was better initially, but not as good as I had hoped. But after a week of use the knife opens and closes better then the day I got it.

Great advice. Thanks
