You may want to repeat this process two or three times depending on how much oil, etc...was in the knife.  Once good and dry, use a little silicone based lube such as QuickRelase, Tuff Glide or steel lube.   NOT OIL.  Never use oil on automatic knives because that collects dust and can just slow them down.  It's great for storing knives in a wrapped environment for long term but not out there for every day use.  A lot of knives come preoiled and you want to get that out of there before pocket carry or displaying it where it will collect dust.  You can buy the Tuff Glide or steel lube at about any knive/gun store and we'll soon be carrying Quick Release here on this site or you can purchase it on line.
