I was wondering what folks here use for knife mechanism lubricant?
My daily carry is a Kershaw Scallion which is an assisted opening knife.

Dry graphite for my daily, helps keep pocket lint from turning it into a greasy, hairy mess.

Graphite lubricant is a good choice. I personally like to maintain and tweak my folders, and use Tuff Glide for the pivots, CLP for the blade. If you occasionally cut foodstuffs, Ballistol would be better for your continued health ;)

Yeah, i'd say this is the reality of it.

I used to own very expensive custom knives, then after a few years, realized, I wasted a lot of money.

They wore, the blades were ground down due to sharpening, etc.

In the span of use, I could have used and abused even more mundane knives and not cared.

Now just common Spyderco's.

When ever i feel it needs lubing. I use the closest thing to me. Ive used olive oil, coconut oil, rapid tap, brad penn 20/50...... just depends on my location.

I use anything from graphite to Tri-Flow in mine. I put it on the pivots and then blast out the excess with compressed air. I disassemble it to clean out the old gunk and sharpen the blade.

Mine's a Kershaw Ken Onion Leek.

I use Balistol on my hinged knives.

For the blades of my high carbon knives I rub them with Camillia oil (used on Japanese blades) to keep them from rusting.

Quick question, I used frog lube too on my knife. I applied it the first application. Once the knife gets dirty, do I just heat up the knife and put more froglube on top of it ?
