    Blade Cleaning

    I do a lot of opening boxes with my EDC so I'm always getting glue on the blade. Wondering if anyone has an easy/effective way of getting the gunk off? Thanks.

    I use acetone to clean the glue and gunk from boxes on my EDC. I use it to open boxes too, and if I cantbjust scratch it off with my fingernail, acetone takes it right off.

    I've used goo gone too, but it always seemed to keep the smells. I do occasionally use it to cut fruit and whatnot to eat when foraging while hiking? I always worried about the residue. And anyone with a female in the house normally has acetone laying around, so no need to purchase anything new.

    91% Isopropanol works decently for me and it evaporates so quickly that if you get it in the pivot it wont rust it or attract dirt.

    Nail polish remover usually has other stuff in there, so it's not that great for cleaning a blade. Stop by an auto parts or hardware store for some straight acetone. Leaves no residue on the blade.
