There's several of us who use FrogLube, it's a little pricey and a little bit goes a long, long way. I can vouch for Nano-oil also. It is somewhat expensive as lubes go. But you use it very sparingly. Under normal circumstances one vial should last, most of us, a lifetime. My favorite application for FrogLube is "seasoning" the liners of my Militaries. It's probably overkill to lube Spyders any at all, but I find satisfaction in using it.jackknifeh wrote:Someone here does use Frog-lube. Don't remember who. I use Nano-oil on pivots and Tuf-Glide on blades and things for corrosion control. Tuf-Glide is an ok lube at best but great for fighting rust. Nano-oil is an outstanding lubricant, especially for places where a lot of pressure is required. Far more pressure than is in a knife pivot. So, IMO that makes it far better than needed (overkill) which is always good IMO. Not the cheapest oil but it lasts.
Lots of products like that I bet. My wife when she was really young worked in a orange juice plant one summer. The huge vats of OJ were filling cans but the labels would change from one brand to another.DWW wrote:Mineral Oil.
I imagine a whole lot of different oils on the market by various companies are nothing more than mineral oil packaged with their company logo on it. I do know that Hoppes #9 lubricating oil is nothing more than plain old White mineral oil.
