Yes, it does. Here's some great information from an older issue of our newsletter, The Spyderco byte
. Just scroll down to the second section.
The lubricating oil most frequently used by Luddites? Spindle oil...(with their textile work). The oil used in greatest quantity by Luddites was not for lubrication, of course. (just a little historically accurate dry n' droll humor.)
As for pivot lubrication and The Byte:
https://www.spyderco.com/byte/2013_10_o ... index.html
".....In addition to cleaning your knife, you should also lubricate the blade pivot with a high-quality gun oil, silicone lubricant, or Teflon-based lubricant. Do not use WD-40, as it is not a true lubricant. Whatever lube you choose, use it sparingly. Oil attracts dust and dirt and excessive lubrication can actually cause your knife to become dirty......"

Most of my other folding knife have "oil the joints" printed on the handle or the blades.
I've never seen a knife nor blade with such markings. Which of your knives are so marked? Thanks for a pic if you can post such.
