View Full Version : How to lubricate his razor ?

I have BlueLube of Benchmade
Introducing a newly formulated technology to help keep those knives tuned for smooth function.
BlueLube not only lubricates, it prevents rust and corrosion ... to enhance overall knife function and keep things moving like a well-oiled machine (without the build up).
I lubricated my whole collection of gillette. Their mechanisms are super sweet.
And you, what's your lubricant ?

I either use Tri-Flow, http://www.triflowlubricants.com/ , or this Blue and red bottle of Dupont Teflon Oil, http://www2.dupont.com/Consumer_Lubricants/en_US/products/dryfilm.html I got at Lowes. The Teflon oil is in a lighter fluid like suspension, so it carries the teflon into the part, then evaporates to leave the teflon there, and dries "dry". The Tri-flow is a standard oil with teflon in it, and doesn't dry "dry". I find the Teflon Oil is good for clearing out a stuck razor, and the Tri-Flow is good for keeping a clean razor clean. Tri-Flow makes a grease which is food safe, and was thinking about trying some shot into my razors to ensure no gunk will ever build up.

i use mineral oil. it works well, is cheap, and if you're constipated...it's good for that too.

LPS 2 industrial spray lube. It smells a little funky so I wouldn't use it very often on my razor, but I did hose down my Grandpa's old superspeed with it when I first rescued it.
I use the stuff at work and literally can't say enough good stuff about it. It's God's gift to door locks (finally tossed the graphite in the trash) and old clocks. I have “fixed” more than a few wind up clocks with a few strategically placed drops, when they had already been hosed down with other oils. I couldn't reach the right spot in one grandfather clock that would stop when it was supposed to chime. I put the little red tube on it, and risked a tiny squirt. The clock started to chime on it's own and is still running over a year later. Good stuff, just don't use too much of it in the house, or your wife will complain about the smell.
