Pocket Knife Care Made Easy by Larry Clark

There are literally thousands of articles on the web that outline various methods of caring for your knives. In this article, I will break it down to the simplest terms using the KISS principle Keep It Simple Stupid to describe how to ensure your favorite knife lasts you many years. The information in this article is valid for all types of pocketknives, and can be used to care for all knives.

Whether you have one pocketknife or a huge collection of quality knives, including the full range of pocketknives, folding knives, fixed blade knives and pulti-purpose tools, you must maintain and care for them or they will deteriorate. I remember once when I pulled my favorite knife out of the leather sheath for the first time in a year, it was all stained and the blade was covered with rust.

Maybe you just gave your son or daughter their first pocketknife and want to teach them how to care for it. No matter if you are a hunter, hiker, camper, or wilderness backpacker, you know that a quality pocketknife is a valuable tool and, if properly cared for it will last you may years.

There are many brands of pocketknives and just as many levels of quality with varying degrees of corrosion resistance suffice it to say knives made with lower quality metals will require somewhat more care to ensure they stay corrosion-free. BUT for the purposes of this article, the prudent level of care described below should keep any knife in good working order.

HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE TIPS TO CARING FOR YOUR POCKETKNIVES

1. USE YOUR POCKETKNIFE PROPERLY Remember a knife is not a screwdriver and a screwdriver is not a knife: Use your knife properly, cut only stuff your knife was made to cut avoid cutting cardboard or paper and never use a cutting board made of glass, granite, or other hard substances. And, of course, (but many people ignore this one) dont use your pocketknife as a screwdriver, chisel or a pry-bar.

2. STORING YOUR POCKETKNIFE When not in use wipe your pocketknife lightly with oil ( a good silicone spray lubricant can also be used) and store it in a dry place. NEVER store your knife in its sheath especially a leather sheath, as leather tends to hold moisture and can cause corrosion.

3. CLEANING AND OILING Many normal uses for your knife such as pealing citrus fruit, cleaning fish or skinning game can leave corrosive residues on your knife. After using your knife, always clean the entire knife with mild soapy water. Then dry it thoroughly and apply a liberal coating of clean oil before putting it into storage. Finally, if you dont use the knife frequently, take it out 3-4 time a year to inspect it for corrosion, and apply a new coat of oil. These actions will ensure a long life for your knife.

4. SHARPENING Always keep your pocketknives sharp. A sharp knife is more efficient and easy to use. There are a number of different styles of knife sharpeners the three primary styles are sharpening stones, diamond sharpening sticks, and ceramic crock sticks. All of these have their pros- and cons- but they all can sharpen knives effectively. When sharpening your pocketknife, I recommend you sharpen to the original angles of the blade. Just follow the instructions that came with the sharpener. Remember there is no need to grind the knife away – go slowly and check progress after every few strokes and stop when you have reached the desired sharpness. When done, dont forget to wipe the blade clean and apply a light coat of oil or silicone protectant.

IN CONCLUSION Take good care of your pocketknives and they will last for many years.

Keep your pocketknife clean and dry.

Oil your knife frequently; especially pivot points and the blade.

Keep your knife sharp; a sharp blade is safer than a dull one.

When not in use, remove your knife from the sheath and store in a dry environment

Sodbuster Knives

Over 150 years ago the Sodbuster Plough was invented to plough the hard dry ground of the Great Western Plains of the USA.

Because of the dry arid conditions, the topsoil was baked into an extremely hard crust known as ‘Sod’.

Traditional iron ploughs were not strong enough, and the ‘Sodbuster Plough’ made of steel was introduced to do the job.

The 1862 Homestead Act provided 160 acres of free land to anyone willing to set up a farm in the Great Plains. The top layer of earth or Sod was so tough that it was used as building bricks by Homesteaders in the Great Plains. Other inventions around this time were, barbed wire to fence off and protect farm land, horse-drawn reapers, binders and threshers and combine harvesters.

The Sodbuster Knife is a large size, low cost, single bladed folding knife. The size has been scaled down recently and UK legal carry Sodbuster Junior knives are available.

Why buy anything for Father’s Day?
Do You Appreciate Your Dad?
Showing Love Need Not Cost Money
In the current economy, with so many out of work, or not working full time, children, even adult children, are left wondering what to get dad for Fathers Day, or his birthday. Do you buy him a tie, get him a nice card, take him out to, or fix him, a nice dinner, etc.? Mothers can be so much easier to get a gift for, but fathers are a more complicated species which is not often understood, so deciding on a gift can get complicated.

Daniel asked How old would you think is appropriate for you child to have a pocket knife?

And got the following answer:

I got one when I was eight…. And nothing bad happened. -.-

SuperFlyMomma asked What is a good pocket knife brand to buy for my husband?

I’d like to buy him a nice pocket knife as part of his fathers day present. I heard someone say if you buy a specific brand you can get a lifetime replacement warranty on the blade, but I cannot remember what the brand name was….so i’d definitely like to buy one with a warranty like that. Any advice or help would be great, thanks.

And got the following answer:

I can’t believe no one has mentioned anything worth a flip ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, You can not go wrong with a “Benchmade” or “Gerber.” These two companies made some of the best knives around in my opinion. If your hubby is a DIYer, look into a Gerber Multi Tool and if he likes a nice folder for working, looking into their knives. I carry both a Gerber folder and Multi Tool. Now if he likes tactical cool gear, check out Benchmade. A lot of Law Enforcement as well as Military will carry a Benchmade. You can typically find either one at your local gun dealer or sporting goods store.

Here is a link to Benchmade’s site for ideas.

John asked how much would it cost to have a pocket knife with a 4″ folding blade made out of black sapphire made?

sapphire is as hard as titanium so i think it would be really cool to have a pocket knife made out of it. it wouldn’t get dull it would be really hard to break or chip. why not just get a knife made out of titanium? because a black sapphire pocket knife would look way cooler. i know gemstones are pricey but if i ever have the money i want one made. any ideas what this sort of thing would run?
if not sapphire are there any gemstones that would work? something durable that will hold up when used not like a trophy knife?

And got the following answer:

Impossible the worlds largest sapphire is but 536 carrots and but just an inch or two in size and priceless. Secondly the material may be hard as in able to keep a sharp edge but it is also brittle and would chip or break easily.
