Basic Knife Care

If you take care of your knife it can easily last multiple lifetimes.

  • Do NOT store a knife in leather sheath (sheath can cause rusting and discolor the blade)
  • Use oil on a wood handle and do NOT clean the wood with hot water
  • Wipe fingerprints from the blade to remove salts and oils
  • Keep the blade sharp (a dull knife is a dangerous knife)
