A couple of days ago I took my Gayle Bradley apart and cleaned it real well. I applied a light coat of Tuf-Glide and let it dry. I wiped off any excess leaving the blade tang, washers and liners dry but protected. I applied Nano-oil to the pivot area only between the liners, washers and tang and on the pivot pin as I reassembled it. I know every little speck and spot is lubricated. Got it back together and working perfectly. Buttery smooth, ablolutely no blade play. Great knife and working wonderfully. Now that I know the only thing on the knife is Nano-oil effecting smoothness I'll see how long it lasts. I won't apply any more until I can tell a difference in how smooth it opens/closes.
