Detailed look at Knives and Elite Oil Technologies Nano-Oil

Nano-Oil™ for knife maintenance can be used on any modern or antique knife to clean, restore, and lubricate the moving mechanisms. Whether fabricating a new knife or working on your favorite knife that you carry daily, Nano-Oil™ will last longer and work better than most traditional knife oils. Nano-Oil™ is designed to magnetically adhere to metallic surfaces and reduce friction. Our lighter weight food-safe knife oils can be used to wick into hard to reach surfaces and stays there, thanks to its magnetic properties. When cleaning a knife, Nano-Oil™ will remove rust or other residues from a blade while leaving a protective coat for the future. 5-Weight Nano-Oil™ applies and evaporates quickly, leaving no residue behind so that it doesn’t attract pocket lent or other debris.

Nano-Bearings™ will render the opening and closing of all knives extremely smooth after applying the blade, on the front and back of washers, and on the locking mechanism. Securely tighten screws while maintaining an easy release. Nano-Oil™ solutions are non-toxic and food safe.
