Care & Maintenance

Washing & Care Instructions

Stainless steel, although stain & rust resistant is not impervious to water. We strongly suggest you hand wash and wipe the blade completely dry after each use. Corrosion can occur if stuck on food or moisture is left to sit on the blade overnight. This is a quality investment piece and by taking the proper precautions you will enjoy many years of stress free service. Do not use the knife on hard
objects and on surfaces such as granite or glass cutting boards.


Please remember, that you must re-sharpen the knife blade periodically. If you are using a sharpening stone or round sharpener, please keep the correct blade angle while sharpening. If you feel the knife snagging a bit. the blade just needs a little stropping or honing, not re-sharpening..

Our knives are handmade

Most knives today are produced to exacting standards on industrial machines.  This gives them certain advantages, mainly lowers the final cost.  However, more of the our knives are still handmade.  Despite the use of "old-fashioned, grandfather" methods, such blades are superior to machine tools in almost all respects.
