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.

Not a sak, but I do remember posting something about this years and years ago, and some clown pm'ed me wanting to buy it. I got this about 30 years ago in one of their new York City stores, before there were any bans against them, and I don't even know if they have any Manhattan stores anymore, 1 was in Penn station, the other was Rockefeller center.. Hoffritz branded butterfly knife(some jerk in college tried to sharpen it, hence the scratches, other then that it has held up perfectly, and opens closes smoothly like a Bruce Lee Kung Fu one)

Director. Have also have an old pre hook explorer on the way that looks like it has Hoffritz inlay on the front scale. Pretty cool.

Thanks! Condition is OK-ish. But the Ranger is cool because it's the oldest one I have (just three back tools).
