Salesman showed up today and it's great!  I love my Super Tinker but the 84mm size and lack of the key ring make the Salesman that much more pocket friendly.
Anyone know the best way to straighten that small blade?  Also, all the tools are super stiff.  On MTs I usually do a Dawn bath and a PB Blaster soak but I doubt that would be great for the scales.  Any recommendations on the best way to clean and free up the tools?

That's a beautiful salesman

Hobie on YouTube has a blade straightening video that's pretty good.  Exercise caution ⚠ for sure, tips break off pretty easily if you're not super careful, and even then they still do. 
Do a quick search on the Swiss Army Knights Forum. And you'll find plenty of information regarding cleaning restoring and oiling :cheers:

Just scooped a vintage-ish Executive.  It's pretty sweet.
