    Possible to use too much nano-oil?

    Does it work better if you use small amounts? If I soak my pivot in it, will it make it smoother than if I use a little bit?

    No, it will just make a mess and attract dust and dirt. It's just like most other lubricating oils in that a little goes a long way.

    Agree with Clip. Plus it's one of the more wxpensive oils. In fact I have all three weights and you can mix them to create different viscosities (thickness). I mixed some 10w and 85w by 50/50 and am using it on knives. It doesn't work better. I did it to reduce the amount that runs out. Any oil I wipe off the tang is wasted oil (money). I also used the 85w by itself and it works great. Being thicker maybe it will stay between the tang and washers. OTOH, just a tiny drop of the 10w is perfect. You can go to nano-oil.com and ask Christian also. He invented the stuff so he may know more about it. Nice guy to deal with also.
