How often do Multitools need to be maintained?
Like any bladed implement or tool, multitools need occasional or routine maintenance. How much and how often is largely going to depend on what kind of abuse your multitool has been subjected to but in general you’ll want to make sure that the blade is sharpened, joints lubricated with a Teflon-based lubricant, and occasionally cleaned with a low viscosity oil like WD-40 that should help displace any water or moisture that has been trapped inside the joints or nooks of the tool.
