I'm certain that I've said things like "all you need is some Vaseline" etc over the years when corrosion is discussed, but I never would have dreamed that anyone would take offense to that. There are ways to deal with this sort of thing and if you don't care for doing those things...
You can't stop the waves of the ocean, but you can learn to surf.
Evil D you're all good, I enjoy having you here and if we ever butted heads, it wasn't serious enough for me to care or remember.
I've tried tuff glide, vaseline, oil coatings etc., at the suggestion of many knowledgable folks like you and JD Spydo. I have no doubt they work for you, but in my case they were insufficient. Eventually the film would wear away from the knife rubbing against the liners in the pivot, the blade cutting cardboard, etc., and rust would appear.
I have only found one solution to my issue with a 100% success rate: H1 folders.
I'm not trying to stop the waves. I'm trying to stop people from littering on the beach
I could ignore this, but I'd rather be confrontational about it. I want to see peoples attitudes change. Telling someone they don't know how to do knife maintenance if their Ti/LC200N Spydiechef rusts, which is advertised as IMPERVIOUS TO THE ELEMENTS, does not help anyone. Just like me telling someone "learn to sharpen" if they complain their chinese 420j Spyderco knock-off doesn't hold an edge long does not contribute to anyones knowledge of anything.
This thread isn't intended to single anyone out. It's directed at the forum as a whole. I just want to see people be more respectful of those with different needs in the realm of rust resistance, the way we're all away to be respectful with other preferences.
