How do I "un-gum" a gummed up assisted opening pocket knife?
I own a Kershaw Ken Onion assisted opening knife. The blade had been oiled by an over-zealous individual (me) to keep rust at bay. Now, however, the assisted opening is sluggish. I am wondering if I should use mineral spirits to break down the oil and then wash if thoroughly to get the assisted open to be smooth again. I don't want to make it worse, though. Any thoughts?
