  :iagree:    The more I carry and use one the more I like them.    :tu:

Yes, they do grow on you like that. At first it seems a little small and light. But it really is up to EDC duty as a pocket knife. After a while , you won't ever leave it at home.

Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

That sport knife has a blade that looks like the Christy knife dad gave me when I was a kid in the 1950's!  Now I wonder just how long dad was a fan of them???

Quick drop-in to let you all know I've been carrying a Christy with me mostly during off-time.

I've also found myself to grab the older one to go along the most.

The smoothness of opening is something I'm not experiencing on the newer one. Maybe that one just needs some breaking in :shrug:

Whatever the case, I'm considering myself very lucky that Lisa was so kind to get me these little cutters after having to endure the eyecandy here for so long :D

The new ones do need some time to break in and a little light, light buffing of the long slide surfaces work well. Just a very light touch will do, and a teeny bit of oil on a finger tip rubbed on the bearing surfaces. Your new Christy will be as smooth as if you'd had it for years. :tu:

If you have some Victorinox oil or some light oil, put some on a paper towel and slide the blade to the full open position and wipe the the tracks with some oil and then slide the blade back and forth a few times.Then wipe off the excess oil. Also you can out a drop of oil down the side of the button and work it back and forth and then wipe off the excess oil.
