how to pocket knife lubrication

Having the desired lube to use is one thing, knowing where to apply it on the knife is another. It is best to use a spray lube, such as Dri-Lube, for locking liner knives. Using the included spray straw, aim directly at the pivot area to apply. Cycle (repeated opening and closing) the blade to work the lube in. If needed, spray a little more. For lockbacks and slip joints, the technique is a bit different. The area to aim for is the tang of the blade, where the backspring has constant contact with the tang during opening and closing. For best results, open the blade (or blades) perpendicular to the handle and apply the lube directly to the tang. Cycle the blade a few times to work the lube in. For consistent smooth operation, repeated applications at regular intervals will help your folding knife function properly
