Thanks for following up on the Mobil 1, D.
I’m a little surprised how little gunk has accumulated. It obviously stays fairly well put and doesn’t migrate as much as some of the lighter oils.
This was also my biggest surprise. I don't think there's any question of whether it will lube or not but I was surprised to see it really didn't leak out beyond where I put it and despite being a wet lube it doesn't seem to attract lint. That knife has been carried literally everyday since the last post I made in this thread so it has had plenty of pocket time. I think it will be my lube of choice on knives that can't be taking apart.
I’d say we’re on the same page with lubes and can’t see how you could possibly go wrong particularly with Mobil 1 staying put and not attracting lint. The only concern I have, I wonder if it may have the potential to stain certain scale materials?
Just a thought D, do you have any discarded FRN or G10 scales you could use to see if it does stain?
