The only thing I find ridiculous is the title of this thread.

Simple Green and a toothbrush, handsoap and hotwater, wife's hairdryer... Shhh,,, followed by Militec-1 (does not attract lint/dirt when dry) while still hot on both steel and sparingly on handles. Does wonders for G10 if they look a bit dry.

Sick Puppy was by Carl Hiaasen, anything by him will elicit smiles from me on a dark day and guffaws when the sun shines.
