With my Dragonfly I only end up cutting the odd strap or cutting some plastic wrap on a pallet of building material, but I work with a lot of concrete so the particles of cement dust end up getting into my pocket one way or another and that's where most of the grittiness comes from.
The beauty of H1 is a quick rinse and back in your pocket it happily goes.
I'd actually been considering this. Sounds like I'll be doing this today. No work until tomorrow, but I'll let you know how it works.Evil D wrote: ↑Sun May 12, 2019 8:09 amA couple things I do to my linerless FRN knives is take out the blade and polish the tang (H1 polishes so easily) and then take some fine sandpaper and knock down all the sharp edges along the inner edge of the handle to make sure there aren't any hard edges to rub the blade during motion. Then I put a little bearing grease on the pivot and they stay silky smooth. I don't get into much gritty/dusty environments but grease in pivots seem to create a barrier to keep crud at away from the pivot. I could also see it holding the crud in place if you do work around sand/dust/gritty environments so I would try just polishing the tang and put it together dry and see how that works.

Sometimes I can get it with some compressed air but this time it wasn't working. Usually I hold the lockbar open and rinse it with water and spray air in it. I passed a towel through the handle slot. Put a few drops of tuf glide after. Working like new.
