I use a white lithium grease for firearms for my CRK Mnandi. It works rather well, at least I am happy with it.

I use whatever firearm lube I have around. I used Rem Oil previously but currently working on a bottle of Breakfree CLP.

I admittedly rarely use my pocket knives for cutting up food.

Oil- slip 2000. Its non toxic and has a good consistency. Grease- red n tacky.

Folding knives that see dirty or dusty conditions I will run dry.

I just used a can of One Shot and I'm really happy with the results. It's a firearm dry lube but works great for knives. I especially like it for my axis locks, no lint and dirt buildup

I can’t say that I do. I think the trick is to use grease sparingly. You don’t need to slather it everywhere.

All of the above work fine.
I prefer Nano-Oil, it does not leave a sticky film to attract gunk.

Tri-Flow which contains Teflon is my favorite. I have tried many mentioned in the forum and always return to this. They also make a dry lube.
