Ok, decided to do some "high quality lube" testing.

Wanted to see the difference between the 85W & 10W grades.

The 10W is the thinner of the two & the recommended one for knives etc.

The 85W is much thicker & recommended for heavy duty use.

So went ahead & took apart some Spydies and first used the 10W (I had my suspicions...)

As expected there was a definite improvement in smoothness & deployment, yet lacking finesse...

Then I cleaned & used the 85W on the same knife (Blue PM2 M390 Sprint)....and....

The 85W grade lends just as much improvement in smoothness & deployment, yet gives the feeling & sound (slightly more muted) of a "better lubricated steel on steel, friction phenomena.

It also stays in the spot of application, not contaminating surrounding areas.

It is as if the 85W grade tends to act as a "gap filler" on the brass spacers, especially if they are not super smoothly polished.

My verdict - I go 85W

Something about seeing MadRookie and "lube testing" makes me want to cover my eyes. Image

Better than Fluid Film Rook? Can't be! LOL I've always wanted to give the Nano stuff a try. Too expensive at the moment. One of these days I'll break down and give it a try. I still have a bunch of the latest and greatest gun and knife oil stuff from twenty or more years ago. I'm such a sucker for stuff like that.

@ Pete:

Fluid film is actually a different beast - it is more of a lanolin based rust inhibitor rather than a fully fledged lubricant - IMHO, Fluid film is by far the best I have used for rust/oxidation prevention - this put me onto it in the first place - this is a must read:

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f35/ ... 0-a-38007/

I normally take apart my new folders and treat all the metal parts with fluid film first, then lube it with a good teflon based oil that I have.

Broke the bank & decided to give the nano oil a go....time will tell...but for now, it seems very good.

:)
