Kitchen Knife Care

Before Use

All the knives we sell come out of the factory with a very sharp edge. Please inspect and make sure your knife is correctly formed. Before first use, please wash the knife using a soft sponge and mild kitchen detergent. Rinse well with water and dry thoroughly. Knives should NOT be put in the dishwasher. Doing so could damage the sharp edges should they come into contact with other objects in the dishwasher.

Knife Storage

All our knives are very sharp and should be carefully stored to avoid accidents and kept out of the reach of small children. We recommend the use of knife blocks, magnetic wall racks, knife docks or knife rolls/cases. A variety of different solutions can be found on our site.

General use instructions

Please use a plastic or wooden cutting board.

Do not use the knives for cutting through fish or meat bones or hard material which may damage the fine blade edge.

Do not use for cutting frozen food. Food from the freezer should first be allowed to defrost.

Do not place knife near a flame or source of heat. Rust spots may appear if knives are left dirty, or in contact with salty or acidic solutions, or certain detergents. They can be avoided if knives are kept clean and dry at all times.

Please wash your knife immediately after use using a soft sponge and mild detergent. Rinse well and dry thoroughly with a kitchen towel.

Do not use the tip of the knife as a screwdriver or can opener. Do not twist the knife in a crosswise direction, as this could damage or break the blade.
