Cleaning- Cleaning the blade after use is important to keeping your OTF functioning properly. Lightly rinse the blade with tap water and remove any residue that may be on it from your cutting job. Thoroughly dry the knife blade making sure no water is left. Once clean. Deploy and redeploy your blade. You can also apply a very light amount of gun oil to the blade making sure to polish it into. Do not put gun oil or any other liquid directly into the handle of your BOT OTF Knife. We also recommend using a damp towel to clean the handle on your RCT Knife.
If you want to clean out the inside of your knife, sometimes you can use a can of compressed air to blow out anything that’s trapped inside the OTF. Remember that dissembling your knife will void its warranty.
How Do I Tighten The Screws On My RCT OTF Knife Handle?Black Phantom Tactical recommends using the appropriate allen wrench to tighten any loose screws. Please use caution when doing so to not strip any screws in the process.
Sharpening – It’s easier to maintain a blade than to let it go completely dull and re-sharpen it later. You can typically use any sharpening system or style to get the job done.
Storage – OTFs can be stored open or closed. People generally store OTFs open if they are going to have them on display at home. If you’re storing your OTF opened, keep the blade clean and oiled, and be mindful that some steels rust more than others.
If the blade falls off track… OTFs are prone to falling off track. This can be remedied easily by manually pulling out the blade. There are two different ways you can do this:
1) Pinch the blade between your thumb and index finger and pull the blade out until it clicks into place. Then it should be back on track, and you can use the button to retract and fire the blade to your heart’s content.
2) Flick the knife and use the momentum of the blade to lock it into position.
