I've used Benchmade Blue and Remington DriLube teflon on my flippers, prefer the Blue, but I'm interested about what else is out there, whatcha using?

I use this to wipe down knives and guns, its also a great light lubricant- use it in place of oil on knives and gun rails and it stays in place like grease but moves slick and easy.

I just clean my knife with solvent, hot water, and compressed air, then squirt the fluid film in and work it into the bearings then use the compressed air to blow out excess and wipe the knife down.

side note- weve also been using this spray to keep our jet skis fresh, theyre 29 years old with lake and ocean use, but the engines still look brand new, no corrosion anywhere, all of the hoses and plastics stayed nice. just a quick wash and dry after each trip and a nice coat of fluid film keeps it perfect

I've tried Remington DriLube and it seems to dry into a gummy, sticky substance, I don't recommend using it at all.

I was originally using Brownell's gun action grease, but this required disassembly every time I wanted to lubricate the pivot.
I've since switched to Boeshield T9 for lubrication of the pivot and corrosion protection of the blade.

i've used clp in the past for my flippers. Recently ive been using the Alg very thin grease and the go juice. The thin grease tends to stay where you put it. I only use a small drop on the back of the knife and on the pivots and it doesn't run. So far so good.

Had a chat with one of my knife shop dealers in San Jose that's a large Benchmade/Kershaw & ZT/Spiderco dealer, Williams Cutlery & Gifts on Camden Ave., and asked him what he uses, he said the Benchmade Blue is good stuff but he really likes the Boker oil and pen applicator, he gave me one to try.
