The Right Way To Care For Your Pocket Knife

Collectors Corner: Pocket Knives

It’s something that a lot of people overlook, especially if your primary use for a pocket knife is opening packages, mail, and occasionally cutting zip ties and other tough plastic bits. Just like a kitchen knife, the dirtier it gets the more dangerous it is, so keeping it in good condition is important. Kennethisme scrubs the blade down with warm, soapy water and an old toothbrush, and then moves on to picking the right lubricant to keep the hinge, lock, and other moving parts well oiled. He suggests a petroleum-based wet lubricant, as opposed to a spray-on dry lubricant that will attract lint or dust.

It holds an edge well, feels good in my pocket and is sometimes useful. I have others, some of which Ive kept since I was a boytwo Barlows, which will be passed along to my grandsons at some point; several lock-backs I picked up somewhere or another; and a rather large Schrade that I keep in my fishing bag in case Im attacked by a bear on the river. I have several Swiss Army knives and four or five multi-tools, which I consider more tool than knife.

The pocket knife must not only be able to fold to fit into a pocket, but once unfolded, it must then stay open. Unlike the peasant knives of old, most pocket knives today are able to achieve this by one of two means. Some knives have a locking mechanism to prevent accidental closure unless the user actively releases the blade, but such a feature generally limits the number of blades to one.

TSA to Allow Pocket Knives On Planes

gty tsa lines dm 130301 wblog TSA to Allow Pocket Knives On Planes

flights will be allowed to carry small pocket knives blades less than 6-centimeters, up to two golf clubs, ski poles, as well as sporting sticks used for hockey, lacrosse, and billiards. Baseball bats will remain on the no-fly list, though wiffle-ball bats and souvenir baseball bats (less than 24-inches long) will be allowed. These are popular items we see regularly, agency spokesman David Castelveter told Bloomberg News. They dont present a risk to transportation security. The move comes following a recommendation by a TSA working group that such items are not a security threat. The move will conform to international rules that currently allow the small knives and sporting goods. Frankly, I dont want TSA agents to be delayed by these, Pistole told the audience. Adding that TSA screeners at Los Angeles International Airport in the last three months of 2012, seized 47 of the small knives per day.
