Cleaning and regular lubrication are important to keep your Swiss Army Knife in proper functioning, here are some care tips:


Como Cuidar do CaniveteWhat care should I take with the Swiss Army Knife?


When cutting or peeling  fruit, fruit juice often runs down between the blades, sticking them together once it has dried. Open and close the blades in warm water several times and the tools can be easily moved again. When they have dired would be good, but not always necessary, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the Spring. On the locking machanism sometimes a drop of this excelent gliding oil could be helpful. Do not put Victorinox with pen or multi-tools in the dishwasher!

How to grease the Swiss Army Knife?


When selecting knife oil, various properties need to be taken into account, including the legal provisions relating to the safety of foodstuffs. Some oils intended for pocket knifes do not provide safisfactory lubrication or may even prevent the knife working properly (causing it to stick, for exemple)

We recommend oil Multitools from Victorinox. Among the features of this product are: Doesn´t have odor and taste, highly resistant to aging, protects your knife against corrosion, the pocket knife can be  immediately applied to cut food.

How to sharp the Swiss Army?


Re-sharpen using a whetstone at an angle of 15 ° - 20 °. This will result in a cutting angle of 30 ° - 40 °. If sharpening on a grinding wheel, always cool with plent of water to avoid excessive temperatures and product damage.

We recommend the Victorinox double sharpener, which includes a universal ceramic sharpener and a sharpening stone.
