I might use a drip or two of tri flow to clean out a pivot, but my pivots probably average oiling once a year if that. pretty unnecessary on most folders.
I'd like to live in an environment where I didn't have to use any .
But for my users apart from a clean I don't use oil either .
However consider this , I have a collection now 35 of those blades were in a codura padded bag .
Inside a wardrobe in sheaths kydex/leather, the place I live is close to the sea and between mountains.
Last year and the beginning of this year it was -2 from 8pm-7am for 3 months in the house :O .
Out of those knives 3 started to rust 2 8cr13mov from a company , the other Aus 8 .
The spydercos that were 8cr13mov did not rust at all not did the carbon blades I have .
So I have no choice as they are collection pieces , what would cause one knife in the same steel to rust whilst another hasn't ?.
HT ? but at that time I used nothing so I won't make the same mistake again and all but 1 were in Kydex .
Out of those 3 , 2 were bead blasted so maybe that had something to do with it .
Also there is a paper you can get I can't recall what it is , but when the cabinet is finished for them to be displayed .
I shall be using some even though its air tight I'm OCD with my collection .
I've even had a spot or two on cpm s30V , so I'm ultra paranoid the only SS I have I'd risk not using anything is RWL-34.
