Repair pocket knife by cleaning

When a pocket knife malfunctions, in the majority of cases it is the result of dirt. More rarely is actual damage such as breakage of a tool or jammed folding. In most cases, a more or less thorough cleaning corresponds to a repair.

Among pocket knife manufacturers, Victorinox Swiss Army Knives are the world’s pattern setter. Authentic products with the authenticity engraving in the blade come with a lifetime warranty. In addition, there is a repair service, which in most cases is offered free of charge and usually includes sharpening and sharpening. It is probably one of the most customer-friendly services available for products.

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.

Easy cleaning

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.

Medium cleaning

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.

Intensive cleaning

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.

You can also loosen mechanical soiling such as crumbs or penetrated foreign matter with mechanical auxiliary levers. Cotton swabs and toothpicks are helpful here. You should avoid using metal pins such as shish kebabs, as these can scratch blades and tools and, in the worst case, damage them.
