I find it depends on the knife. Sometimes I use nano oil, sometime I use grease. Sometimes I use both, nano oil for the pivot, grease for the ball detent track. There are also different weights for nano oil, that can make a big difference. So I typically try nano oil, if it doesn’t work I try something else. Play around with it and see what works for you.
