TUF Cloth and TUF Glide Review – Overview Complete, Tips & More

Unlike oil-based products, TUF-CLOTHs and TUF-GLIDE repel dust and dirt rather than attract it. Treated knife blades are dry to the touch instead of having a slippery film like silicone. TUF Products give all your knives a dry bonded shield of protection. Use TUF-CLOTH and TUF-GLIDE to lubricate and protect your knives and blades.

Sentry Solutions TUF products provide a fast-drying, water-displacing micro-bonding crystal barrier against rust, friction and wear. Perfect for protecting your knife. Our revolutionary oil-free, bonding action sets TUF-CLOTH and TUF-GLIDE apart from all competitors. TUF-CLOTHs and TUF-GLIDE go on wet, and then the carrier for the active lubricants and protectants quickly evaporates leaving a dry bonded micro-shield to protect the metal surfaces of knives.

Will not wash off, thicken in the cold or attract dust and dirt like oil-based product. Tuf Cloth is a brilliant system for keeping you field cutlery, favorite knife or firearm in tip-top condition. It is a great oil free system that you can use for cleaning as well as lubrication and protection.

It is Micro-Bonding Oil-Free Shield that will not Attract Dirt. It is an oil-free technology that provides a revolutionary upgrade from oil and silicone rags. It delivers lubrication and protection for today’s firearms, knives, tactical gear, and collectibles.

Quick clean on your gun bench, the range or in the field. Spill-proof pack; long-lasting, lint-free impregnated cloth.

Rust protection

Wiping with TUF-CLOTH gives you cleaning, rust protection and lubrication. Pure mineral spirits is the fast drying carrier for the active ingredients, so TUF-CLOTH cleans as it transfers the lubricants and protectants to all surfaces of your gear for 100% protection. It evaporates, and Sentry proprietary ingredients bond to the surface; this bonding assures long-lasting effectiveness.


TUF-CLOTHs waterproof protection will not wash off or thicken in the cold (even down to -40°F/-40°C). It is dry to the touch so will not attract dirt like oil-based products, nor does it leave a slippery film like silicone. It is safe to use on wood and most plastics.

TUF-CLOTH is user-adjustable; either by drying in air or adding pure mineral spirits. A wetter cloth applies a thicker shield of protection that dries more slowly. The excess can be buffed off after it is dry without compromising performance.

Polishing Material

A dry TUF-CLOTH makes a terrific polishing cloth; it beautifies wood and gives blue metals a deep luster. Use TUF-CLOTH to protect equipment, firearms, knives, wood and all metal components. It maintains its effectiveness even when it is wet with water, and it will not harm most plastics.

TUF-CLOTHs make messy old oil and silicone rags obsolete when it comes to knife care. Sentry combines state-of-the-art technology with a lint-free fabric to make TUF-CLOTH a superior, long-lasting product for both rust protection and lubrication. The unique lint-free fabric is carefully impregnated with a mixture of proprietary dry film lubricants and corrosion inhibitors in odorless mineral spirits which will not damage your favorite knife.

Simply wiping a knife blade applies an ultra-thin coating that guards against corrosion, and provides cleaning and lubrication. The bonded protection will not wash off, thicken in the cold (even down to -65F degrees), or thin out from intense heat (up to 650F degrees). TUF-GLIDE is the quick-drying liquid partner for TUF-CLOTH.

Based on the same technologies as TUF-CLOTH it protects all the hard-to-reach places of your gear. When used together your collection of knives has 100% protection.
