I did try your suggestion Bill and it works much better ::ds:: Thank you ::handshake::

I took this photo after working the knife several times( 20 or so), as you can see there is still quite a bit of grease in the hole.

I also didn't realize the knife was double stamped until i enlarged the photo ::facepalm::

Thought I would throw my old German Henckels in to show everyone.
Lokks somewhat like the one Jonnnie showed.
This one has great stag handles and I feel itis in great shape.
I am thinking the Henckels are one of the Higher end switchblades, just my opinion.
I guess I do not know what one of these would bring nowdays but I think that
are hard to find.
Hope everyone enjous seeing this one. Not the best pictures but hope OK

A bit tortured but still worthy 8) it has a diferrent stamp than that nice one Hawk posted up a couple frames ? mine doesn`t say "solingen " on it . Hmmmmm... maybe one is older , This one has a #4 on the release lever.
