We have camping & hunting models, all of which have become over time very difficult to open. I have tried blowing out dirt with compressed air, then soaking in hot water & rinsing with hot running water, and then oiling when dry...but to no avail. These knives are not bent or otherwise damaged. Any suggestions?

@Rick Thanks for reaching out!
Even though you posted this question on the "Ask an REI Employee" board, you may also get suggestions from other members of the community such as the advice given by @Wanderer on this topic. We wanted to provide a friendly reminder (from our User Guidelines) that "only posts from a user with the “REI Employee” rank should be regarded as employee-generated content." That said, the "REI Community Moderator/Manager" are also employees!
Thank you and have a great day!
