Default tuf cloth is sticky on my knives



Advertise Here

i wiped down a couple of my brand new knives with the marine tuf cloth product and now its sticky/tacky. the package says it wont be sticky in any weather, heat, cold or humidity but it is. i only wiped it once so it wont be to thick. i tried to buff the blades but it only helped a little. like the package says its on there. anybody have experience with this product? any tips on usage? why is it sticky/tacky?

I do since it first came out and never ever experienced that. It uses mineral spirits as a carrier. After it evoperates it leaves behind the protectant.

Did the knife have any oil or oil residue on the blade? That may be the problem.

Try cleaning the blade with mineral spirits. That may work. Denatured alcohol as well, it's a solvent.

I followed the instructions on the package exactly. the knives are brand new just opened out of the box, and i cleaned and wiped them down so they were very clean. no finger oil or anything. maybe it needs to cure longer because its the thicker marine one? its been 48 hrs now and its not as sticky now but it is still tacky.

Never use that one. I agree that you should give it time.

why never use the marine one? i figured i would go with the marine one cause they said use that one on my blades because im basically on the ocean here in hawaii. i can drive around the island here in 2 hours and humidity is rarely under 70%. ocean mist haze type of thing happens everyday to so thats why i went with the marine tuf cloth instead of the regular one. they said its exactly the same, just that the marine one goes on a little thicker.

Oops. I meant to say "I never used that one."

Being where you are at yea you need a thick coat of that stuff. Did you watch the videos they have on it? Impressive stuff. Go to sentry solutions web site if you have not already done so.

yea i totally did my homework on the product which is why i went with it. also thats why im surprised im having the sticky problem because i cant find anything on anyone having this problem. the only thing i can think of is maybe the tuf cloth chemical is reacting with the black coating on the blades. they are all ESEE knives.
