Victorinox Swiss Army Champion Plus Pocket Knife
Thought you might like to know, that Victorinox suggests in the User Guide that accompanies the knife a solution to easing the opening of a new knife and I quote: "Blades that do not open and close easily: open and close a few times in warm water, then dry, and oil." Actually I have never done this, over time with use, the knifes ease up. Also oiling on occassion is suggested and to be done. Hope this is helpful to you and others.
