5 or 10 weight Nano-Oil will work as well, and without damaging plastic or (synthetic) rubber.
I've tested both on various O-rings used in flashlights, nylon sliders for drawers, small nylon cogs found in various household appliances, as well as on different types of suspensions found on...
Some USB-pictures i took of the unused & armhair shaving sharp factory edge of an 2010 Buck 110 blade:
I used this specific 110 blade to replace the worn out one in an older 560 model:
Just used my last Buck 110 blade on an old & worn Buck 560 from a friend of mine.
Had to use the old backspring as i'm all out of new ones, but luckily i still had a new blade, a pivot pin, and a bronze bushing.
The new pivot pin wasn't riveted with a hammer, but pressed using a vise and a...
In the past i've bought several "naked" Paper Wheels and charged each one with a combination of diamond paste & oil.
A while ago i also replaced the SiC grit on my old grinding Wheel for diamond grit (still experimental)
For people using diamond compounds on Paper Wheels like i do; give Nano-Oil 5 weight a try.
I have been using this oil exclusively for quite a few years now, and so far it's the best i've come across.
It remains speculation if that is because of the special "fullerene" additives or something...
Vintage Puma Scout knife, probably from the '60's or '70's, and apart from a few details comparable to the well known Hitler Youth knife.
Overall length: 24,4 cm (9.6 inches)
Blade length: 13,9 cm (5.47 inches)
Blade thickness: max. 5.97 mm (ricasso)
Steel: hot drop-forged...
Years ago this vintage French pocketknife came into my possession.
Both blades were frozen shut, but a few drops of Nano-Oil 5 weight solved that overnight, and now each blade has a very nice snap again.
Takes and holds a good edge, and due to the thin overall construction it goes unnoticed in...
Cold Steel Vaquero XL.
The largest Voyager model that still fits in my right front pocket, and can be opened easily with the thumbstud.
For me the knife offers 3 solid hand positions (choked up, standard, and all the way to the back for extra reach), and has absolutely zero bladeplay.
@KKnives_Swiss : several years ago i did a review of a Japanese made Forever brand ceramic knife, maybe it's useful for you to have some comparison material.
I would like to find out how this ceramic material would do with lower edge angles, like ~25 degrees inclusive or ~20 degrees inclusive.
And if the knives would also do well with those lower angles in pro-kitchens, that would be even better.
Already have a couple of pro-Chefs in mind who might...
