Repair by cleaning
Both original Swiss Army Knives and imitations or models from other manufacturers have manageable mechanics. Except for breaking of individual tools or detachment of handle scales, damage is almost impossible.
When cleaning to remove jamming and sluggishness, three levels of intensity can occur.
The completely opened pocket knife is rinsed under warm water. A gentle agitation back and forth will also loosen crumbs. A light dabbing with a brush can help. After washing, re-lubricate the pocket knife with two drops of oil on both sides on the tool axles.
The completely opened pocket knife should be soaked in a water bath with a splash of conventional detergent for a few minutes. It is then rinsed by hand under lukewarm water. In the process, it should be opened and closed several times. Finally, apply a drop of oil to each of the two tool axes.
One or more tools may jam in a heavily soiled pocket knife. If soaking the entire pocket knife overnight does not produce the desired result, penetrating oil from a spray can is an effective aid. Caramba or WD-40 are liberally spread on and inside the pocket knife. After exposure times of thirty minutes to two hours, the tools should be able to be moved again.
