Loosening a Swisstool?
« on: July 05, 2020, 05:54:41 PM »
I picked up a Swisstool a couple years back for a good price second hand and it's a heck of a tool, miles apart from my wave, but I have one serious issue with it: The tools are too bloomin' hard to open! The blades/saw/file are fine, I can manage the phillips by opening the file and getting in front of it but the rest are uncomfortable at best and are best opened with the coke spoon cuticle pusher on my mini champ.

Anyone have any tips on how to make the tools easier to deploy?

Open and close it in hot water continue to all dirt are out.
Then let it dry and oil it :)

I had one that was so incredibly tight, even after cleaning, oiling, WD-40, well everything, it will wouldn't open on one handle.Since some tools were damaged anyway, I sent it to Victorinox, and they replaced it. Given how trashed this SwissTool was (which the seller said "good condition"--ha!), I suspect abuse and neglect played a huge role.
