Good wash with soap and water, blasting with WD40, oiling

The factory oil they used tends to harden and seize things up. In the 3-4 mint in box USA Schrades I've picked up over the years, cleaning them well and re-oiling (I use just ordinary 3-in-1) usually helps immensely.

also, using a toothbrush when washing the tool helps (don't use it for your teeth afterwards)

Which Schrade is it?  The Schrade Tough Tool is nicknamed the "Tough to Open Tool."  It was riveted together so user adjustment is virtually impossible.
