Regular oiling of the blade and lock mechanism (if a folder) will ensure proper function and go a long way in preventing rust. You can use the same oil you use on your firearms or a general-purpose household oil. Just remember, oil is great at preventing rust, but it attracts and holds dirt and grit, so a little goes a long way. Also be wary of getting oil on the handle of your knife, a slippery knife is never a good thing. Wood handles can be treated with a preservative such as Linseed Oil. Leather washer handles can be preserved with a good quality leather treatment such as mink oil. If you knife has a rubber or synthetic handle, nothing is required, however you may treat it with Armor All if your feel the need, just wipe it off before you use it, as it may be slippery.
