Based on 5 reviews

A nice weight oil for pocket knives that is easy to use thanks to the needle applicator and size of bottle. I purchased the KPL to loosen up an old Victorinox Safari and it has also helped to flush out some dirt. I think I'll work back through my collection to give all my knives some KPL TLC. A great item for the tool kit and easy to take along if on the road/in the field. Shopping with Mitch at AC is a pleasure as always, and this product sits nicely in his curated line of EDC gear. Many thanks.

Hi Patrick, thanks so much for leaving your review of your KPL! Yes, everyone's collection does deserve the KPL treatment indeed. Thank you for your support!


Excellent customer service

Great product, have used on a couple knives so far and it seems to work well. Ordered over the Christmas period and received excellent customer service regarding when I could expect the item. Will order from here again.

Hi Daryl, I hope you've gotten to use it and feel the KPL difference.

Great stuff

I’ve been using nano oil for years and this stuff is way better. I tried it on my kapara and ten minutes later I was cleaning out my whole collection and adding this to the pivot.
Great price and service too.
Thank you

Hi Jake, thank you for leaving your review. It is really great oil and you're right, it compels one to add it to all their knives with its easy application! The bottle should last you for ages too (depending on how large your collection is)!



Added a drop of KPL either side of the pivot on my 940, has enhanced its action ten fold. Couldn’t recommend higher.

Thanks Eric for leaving a review! How good is KPL! A little really goes a long way. Great stuff.
