What our community is saying about Knife Pivot Lube!

This product works great, I have used it on Several high end knives, and it works great. Bearings, phosphor bronze washers, and Teflon, this worked on them all.

The applicator also works great, does not dispense too much at one time and gives you good control. The lid also seems to seal well, better than others I have tried.

The pivots on my Squid Industries Triton and my Spyderco Para 2 are buttery smooth in comparison to stock and Hoppes 9, respectively.

I'll eventually use it on all my knives once the time comes for their maintenance. Pivots now have a vanilla-esque scent to them, and I find myself bringing out my knives just to get a sniff. Great stuff overall, 10/10.

This lubricant works perfectly and makes my BladeRunnersSystems Alpha Beast Balisong feel as smooth as butter.

I would definitely recommend this product for Balisong flippers due to its small size, as it is easy to take with you on the go.

Absolute best lube I've used for my knives!!!


I'm currently running it in two knives, my Benchmark Griptillian and Civivi Naja. And getting fall shut preformance.

KPL has immediately made a noticeable difference. I don't know what's in this stuff, but it's absolutely awesome. I'm a believer.

Over the years I have used pretty much every knife lubricant out there: Chris Reeve's fluorinated grease, daiwa reel oil, frog lube, and several different weights of nano-oil. In my honest opinion this stuff beats them all. 

ConsumerOfGoods

It really is as good as people say it is. I was skeptical that it would actually be special, but, it is. This stuff kicks ass. Made my knives feel better than new.

Nick Raimer

The needle applicator and safety cap works well. Lubricates knife pivot very well. 1 drop and you're good to go.
