Jake Hoback F23 Knife Maintenance Kit


The F23 Knife Maintenance Kit addresses a need in the industry for the ongoing care and maintenance of knives. Although cleaning kits are very common in the firearms industry, and everybody knows you have to clean a gun to keep it in top operating condition, there are many knife users and collectors who are unaware that they need to clean and maintain their knives in a similar way.

Jake envisioned a product that could cater to the specific needs that knives have and firearms don’t, and partnered with Breakthrough Clean Technologies to design an edged-tool lubricant that features a boundary additive to aid in lubricating, protecting, and enhancing the operation of all types of knives (especially folding knives).

The F23 Knife Oil is a specifically-designed knife and cutlery lubricant. Jake spent months testing different formulations and additives in search of an effective, long-lasting lubricant that won’t evaporate. The goal was to create a lubricant that will protect edged weapons and enhance the bearing and pivot movements on a folding knife. Special attention was also paid to the capillary effect that is present when joining two pieces of steel together; it is critical to provide and retain sufficient lubrication in those capillary spaces.

The F23 Knife Maintenance Kit includes:

  • Formula 23 Knife Oil
  • Breakthrough Clean Solvent (Replaced with Aegis Solution EDCi 1 Oz Bottle)
  • Cleaning Brush (Plastic)
  • Cleaning Cloth
  • Knife Disassembly Tool Pack (Allen Wrenches)
  • Knife Cleaning Mat
  • Storage Pouch
  • Jake Hoback Knives PVC Patch


Whether you’re hunting, working, or protecting yourself, you want your knife to be in perfect working order – so regular cleaning and lubrication is necessary!
