Multi-tool folding pocket knife

A multi-tool folding pocket knife is a good complement to your strong fixed blade knife. Some of the tools you will find most useful are wood saw, scissors, can opener and pliers. To preserve the life of your pocket knife, use the appropriate tools for a job. Probably, the most common mistake is to use knife blades as can opener.


- To clean a folding knife, open up all of the tools in your knife and rinse it with warm water.

- Scrub it with an old toothbrush. When you have removed all the dirt, rinse it with warm water. Handle the knife very carefully when all the blades are out.

- Finally, allow the knife to air-dry and then lightly oil it with, for example, sewing machine oil. Wipe off any excess oil with a paper towel. Close the blades.
