Sand is nasty stuff. Few things send shivers up my spine like that grinding sound of solid grit in a SAK or multi. That's why I almost never take a SAK to the beach. If anything breaks there, well then that's just too bad!Regular grit is terrible too, but sand is the bane of my tool existence. I almost long for poorly made tools when dealing with sand as the giant gaps allow for easier cleaning!Def
Toothpicks and Q-tip's indeed .
I actually use Q Tips as well, although now I'm a little embarrassed to admit it!Does it help if I say that I use a multi to squish the heads so they fit down inside the channels of a SAK?Def
Okay, sounds like we've got several good suggestions about cleaning out the crud. How about rust? What works best for getting rid of the little spots and speckles? (SwissTool users, please bite your tongues!)
