All the knowledge gained from over 20 years of making the finest kitchen cutlery available, and even more time out in the field, went into making the Glory Folder. This knife is truly a work of functional art that is built to last a lifetime.
New West KnifeWorks' Glory Folder is constructed from the highest performance American-made materials. The blade is made from CPM S35VN Steel - a very durable steel that retains a sharp edge and provides a lifetime of service if cared for with a few simple practices.

Most of the time, maintenance folding knife maintenance can be done without taking it apart. Here is a simple list of tools and steps to keep your folder in good working shape.
A compressed air duster can is a great way to remove debris from the inner workings of your knife. Blow the knife out thoroughly while open as well as closed. Clean your blade with some alcohol, using a toothpick to force the rag into the tight areas. The important surfaces to clean are where the spring lock meets the blade, clean these contact areas with a cotton swab. While in the open and locked position use a cotton swab to clean ball detent area in spring lock. Repeat until cotton swab comes out clean. Use a small amount of Nano-Oil to lubricate the pivot and bronze bushing area, as well as the ball detent.
