I'm using Ballistol since the early '80s and trust it.
It is slightly alkalic though, but never had a problem with it on my SAKs and MTs  :think:
I always oil the liner areas too as you said.

I had a very very slight grinding problem on the other '80s Traveller on 3 implements but they were unused and not as highly polished as they are these days. It quickly went away.

Never any of those problems on newer SAKs.

No worries Grant, it's got better already and snaps open and close with no grinding. Just not super slick.

How's your project going?  :popcorn:

No real progress on the current project...I haven't had much continuous knife time so I've been mostly doing minor repairs and cleaning recent arrivals.

Also got a little side-tracked on some nickel silver pin production:

I've forgotten how much I dislike turning pins down from 3/32".  Been itching to do a vintage resto-mod and some repairs that'll need the 2.2mm pins.  Not looking forward to turning long sections.

Spring (the season) cleaning is taking up way more of my free time than I thought...and I'm nowhere near being done.

Vintage resto-mod? Interesting  :popcorn:
Turning down pinstock? How much braided wire do you need?  :rofl:
