Knife Care


GENERAL CARE

Wipe and or rinse then dry the blade immediately after every use.

For ease of maintenance store your knife on a magnetic rack or block where it will dry quickly.

Drawers are not a place to store knives as the edges get beat up and dulled, and if slightly damp can cause the blade to rust.

Use wood or plastic cutting boards - end grain wood is best. Glass, ceramic and granite will dull any knife very quickly.

 If you are going to store a knife for a long period, oil it well and leave it out of its sheath as leather can absorb moisture and could cause rust. 

NEVER EVER PUT YOUR KNIFE IN THE DISHWASHER! IT DOES NOT ENJOY IT IN THERE.

 

PATINA

Our knives are made of high carbon steel. To ensure longevity we force a greyish patina onto some of our knives during the making process. This helps prevent oxidation and rust build up on the blade.

This patina will change over time and become unique to the knife and what you choose to cut with it.

Each stain and acid etch tells a story unique to your own knife. We love how this looks after years of use. 

 

SHARPENING

To keep your knife as sharp as possible we suggest honing your knife using super fine steel or ceramic, followed by using a leather strop. We suggest doing this after every use or every other use.
