Comprehensive Cleaning and Maintenance Tips
- Initial Cleaning: Fresh out of the box, use a lint-free cloth to remove any factory oils or residues from the blade and handles.
- Regular Wiping: After each use or practice session, wipe down the knife with a damp cloth to remove sweat, dirt, or oils.
- Lubrication: Use a high-quality knife lubricant on the pivot points for smooth operation. Do this monthly, or more often if you use the knife frequently.
- Blade Care: If you have a stainless steel blade, occasional application of a rust inhibitor can help prevent corrosion. Damascus steel blades may require more frequent oiling.
- Handle Maintenance: Wooden handles benefit from occasional application of mineral oil. For G10 or titanium, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth.
- Lock and Latch: Ensure the latch and any locking mechanisms are free from dirt and operate smoothly. Apply a tiny drop of oil if necessary.
- Sharpening: Sharpen the blade using a whetstone or a specialized sharpener designed for butterfly knife. Always maintain the same angle for an even edge.
- Storage: Store your butterfly knife in a cool, dry place, preferably in a protective case to prevent scratches and to maintain its condition.
