I have 2 folding pocket knives that I carry and use everyday. I've been periodically spraying WD-40 on them, but I know there's better stuff out there. But which is the best?

I'm sure this has been pointed out here before, but I'll say it again: WD-40 is a solvent, not a lubricant. Use it to loosen a rusty bolt. If you want to lubricate and/or protect something, use oil. Mineral oil works quite well for blades.

put only edible oil on it! a knife is used to cut food, it's useless if you sprayed toxic products on the blade.
