Mitch threw a used bottle of this in with my order (because he's a bloody legend!!) and 110% this stuff is great, tiny amount on bearings and you notice to smoothness straight away. (I'm not even taking the knives apart to apply, so imagine the difference if I did 😉)

The trio is complete

Whilst this version of KPL was intended for OTF knives it still serves a purpose for us Aussies.
Sometimes you just want a thinner oil to reach further in without having to disassemble your gear.
This is that oil.

As always you will receive elite customer service from Mitch at Adventure Carry!

Thank you Michael for your review! Your KPL family is complete. Good tip on using the Ultra Lite for maintenance without disassembly!
