The best oil for maintaining our cutlery tools, pocketknives, knives, scissors and swords is mineral oil with a high level of filtering. This type is of high quality and multiple applications, it has the best properties since it is the most liquid of all with great penetration capacity. We recommend its use as extra protection on the blade of any tool, even if it is stainless, as well as for the perfect adjustment of the axis of knives or scissors. ATTENTION: Never use vegetable oil, as it is too thick and degrades over time, favoring the accumulation of dirt.
The sheath is the best and most important accessory for a folding knife. Not only does it provide comfort, it is the only accessory that will ensure a long life for our tool, since it provides protection, avoiding scratches on the scales and internal dirt, and a plus of resistance against corrosive agents such as humidity, the main enemy of steel, even those in the stainless range.
According to Royal Decree 137/1993, January 29, Regulation of Weapons that regulates the possession, use, sale, advertising, circulation, import and manufacture of those considered non-fire weapons , it is allowed to buy non-prohibited cutlery items in establishments that are dedicated to the commercialization of this type of products and transport them to the home through the different means of transport. Regarding the use and possession, according to the current law, folding knives whose BLADE is equal to or less than 11 CENTIMETERS are totally legal, as long as they are used responsibly and in logical situations to use it, either to carry out a sports activity, hunting or of leisure in which you need to use the folding knife. You cannot take it, even complying with the legal measure, to go to places of entertainment (clubs, pubs, concerts, sporting events, etc.), demonstrations or any other activity incompatible with carrying the knife, or for personal defense. Folding knives that exceed 11 centimeters of blade can be marketed, but only for ornamental purposes or collection at home.
ATTENTION: Finally and in any case, the criterion of the agent of the corresponding authority will prevail, who will be the one who decides if even complying with the legal measure of the sheet, we can take it or not according to the situation, state or attitude of the person, etc...
The greatest "enemy" of any piece of cutlery is WATER, therefore, the right cleaning of a folding knife blade should always be done only with a wet cloth, never submerging it in water, dishwasher, etc..., drying insistently afterwards to avoid possible oxidation effects on the steel, even on stainless steel, try not to touch the handle. If it is also necessary to clean the handle, we will proceed in the same way, but with attention that it is completely dry to avoid deterioration, especially if it is made of a natural material such as wood, bone, horn, etc... Finally, we recommend lubricate the axis, as well as the inside of the handle of any folding knife, with mineral oil, never vegetable, to avoid oxidation that causes the "hardening" of the action of opening and closing our tool.

The Albacete classic knife, from the 20th century, is characterized by its unique and original "lever" locking system.
This mechanism consists of a lever tab, which we will have to press forward to lift the spring and thus release the blade, unlocking it.
It is very important to do it correctly, since otherwise, we will damage the system by forcing the lever or the action spring.
To do this, carefully follow our instructions:
1) With your right hand hold the handle of the knife and put your thumb on the lever tab, and with your left hand hold the blade.
2) Then the thumb pushes the lever tab forward and the left hand helps the blade to go down, it may go hard at first, it is normal as it is tightly set by hand so that over time once it is soften, do not take excessive slack and the blade is out of adjustment. It is very important that we help the blade to go down with our left hand, since otherwise we exert all the force just by pushing with the thumb, and we will be forcing the system, which sooner or later will break down, either by overcoming the spring upwards, with which the knife will no longer block or completely breaking the lever tab or spring.
3) When the blade has been unlocked, lower the lever tab back to its initial rest position and finally close the blade completely.
