Essential for optimal knife care

Gets the job done with its easy apply syringe-like nozzle! Necessary for any traditional knife or modern knife. Keeps my knives action tight. Remember to oil the joints!


I purchased KPL after realising I should have in my very first folding knife order. This is important to the function and longevity of any knife.

What I like about this particular product is the almost syringe like dispensing nozzle. It makes it easy to target exactly where you want the lubrication applied and it's also long enough that you can get into deeper areas as needed.

The oil is of a nice viscosity that stays where applied so it can do its job. The oil has a red hue to it so you can see exactly where it's applied which is helpful.

The screw on top is childproof which came as a nice surprise to me. It has a nice balance of being easy for an adult to open and safe at the same time.

This is a really good product and I'm glad I purchased it and recommend it with great confidence and is far-far better than any household oil I used in the past. I will never make that mistake again after using this purpose-made product.

E. D. pretty well!

Went through my older slippies and hit the pivots and springs, i worked the blades some and came back to them a few days later to way smoother walk and talk. Also i dabbed alot of crud that was floated away from the unreachable spaces. I will be using this product from now on. I have the original and will probably be trying the thinner viscosity product as well.

Really impressed with this stuff. Fixed a flipper on bearings that was grinding etc. Think it had a flake of dlc or coating lodged inside but now its like butter

Great product

The oil does an excellent job. The pin hole applicator allows for a very precise amount to be applied where it’s needed. Definitely worth the money since that precision will help prevent waste.
