Oils for knives--especially switchblades.
Periodically a outside sales rep will offer products I know to be substandard.
Oil is important for switchblades. If you decide to buy substandard oil, just piss on the knife--it's cheaper yet!
I have a lead from Joyce at Horizon. They are some of the most honest knife salesmen I know. Compared with the cheapest lowballers in the industry, they are usually only four dollars more, with the best customer service.
First in my choice. You have an expensive knife and you're considering WD-40. Hold that thought, use CLP-Break Free instead.
As for Joyce, she called me and told me a "freebie" was coming, and it was oil. She admonished me to use "less" not more. In fact, she told me that if there was a teenie hole drilled halfway into the ricasso, use that for the oil.
At first, I thought she sent me an applicator of Tuf-Glide, but her product comes in an identical applicator.
Their oil is called "Quick Release," and if you can see a drop of oil appear you've used too much.
You drop a minuscule amount onto the inside activator button, and click the knife open just twice.
Your knife is now both faster and smoother--mine are!
Call Joyce at Horizon Bladeworks, 828-884-4302.
