Benny
Get one of each and decide for yourself. You will get all sorts of answers as to what people like to use and it's easier to find one you like. I admit to a great fondness for 3 in 1 oil. Also keep in mind what type of washers are used metal or teflon coated plastic they can be affected differently by the chemical make up in the lube.

Militec plain and simple. Check out the help section on the Baliforum and check out the Balisong "collecter" site. Gollnick has an interesting tutorial on how to apply Militec to some of BM's Balis.

I also used Militec, but found it easier to get 3in1 at the local hardware store than waiting for a shipment. Graphite also makes a good lubricant.

i use corrosionX on everything, it's in a spray can and does a pretty good job of removing not so light rust, i figure it will protect against rust too. i got it at a gun show and it was 15 bux for a 16oz. can.

You like the 3 in 1 to. Reminds me of growing up smelling it. If I could get away with it I would use it as aftershave. Remember Marvel Mystery Oil?

I have been using Tuff-Glide for some time now. It works great. Since it's a dry lubricant, it won't attract dust and dirt from your pocket. So far, it has not damaged anything that it was applied to..including stag, horn, acrylic and any of those rubber like inserts you find on modern knives.

I use Militec-1 and you can get a free sample from their website.

I started a thread on another forum and others have posted other free lubricants. Check it out.

I use whatever I find first. [Even chapstick works in an emergency].

Carmex for chapped lips made my LCC workable after my sore thumb gave out trying to open it. :D

When you can't find anything else pull the dipstick from your car for a drop or two of oil. Olive oil also works when nothing else is available.
[I may not be real bright but I'm very resorceful]. Good lubes are nice but
if not available use whatever you can find. [You can always flush out the "emergency stuff" and relube later with the expensive stuff].

Militec...

Militec is great! Just remember to heat the blade with a hair dryer for a minute or two to make the stuff bond...............GS
