Cleaning Your Knife
Please follow normal knife-cleaning practices. These are general guidelines not any different from other knives.
Hand-wash only. Please do not put in the dishwasher.
Wash immediately after use with mild detergent and warm water.
Use a soft cloth or sponge and avoid using abrasives.
Wipe of excess water and leave to air dry. Depending on your water, light spotting may occur, which is normal to stainless steel.
Caring for Your Handle
Like any handcrafted item, your work of art might require some light maintenance.
After washing, please ensure that you dry the handle thoroughly as soon as possible.
If the handle begins to dull (which is normal), merely wipe the wood with food-safe wood oil just to restore the sheen and reseal the pores. Let the oil sit overnight and wipe off excess in the morning.
Please always follow instructions on the bottle or consult your local cabinetmaker for more details.
We recommend Howard's Mineral Oil, available via Amazon.
Caring for Your Blade
Like other knives, we recommend taking a honing steel to the blade before each use to maintain the sharpness.
To sharpen further, we recommend using a whetstone or taking this to a professional 1 - 4 times a year depending on the frequency of use.
