Care Instructions

Wipe After Use

After use IMMEDIATELY wipe/clean with the soft side of the sponge and DRY IT! Otherwise rust will set in! The juice from onion, apple & lemon will cause stains quickly!


Make it a regular habit to sharpen your knife at the non-glazed rim on the bottom of a ceramic plate or cup for a quick fix. Best results are achieved using a whetstone

No dishwasher

Never put your knife in the dishwasher

Oil regularly

Oil it once in a while with canola oil or food grade mineral oil
