Dry the blade after each use. Do not let the blade air dry (danger of flash rust!).
Always wash knives with wooden or horn handles by hand, not in a dishwasher. Knives with plastic handles are dishwasher-safe, but
should always be dried thoroughly directly after the washing process (danger of flash rust!).
We therefore strongly recommend to clean all knives by hand, as the strong heat or aggressive detergents can also affect the blade's edge
The cause of rust-like spots is so-called flash rust, which comes from steel pots or other materials in the dishwasher.
Please check the dishwasher and locate the source of rust (e.g. damaged dish rack, tea strainer, handle of an old pan). Rust stains can be removed with standard
Even though the blades are rust-resistant, they are not completely rustproof. Stainless steel blades would no longer be sharp.
Only use the knife for its intended purpose.
Improper use can damage the blade.
Only use the knife on suitable surfaces. Do not touch the blade of the knife when using it.
Keep the wooden and horn handles in good condition with natural oil (e.g. olive oil, horn oil). Apply the oil sparingly to the handle with a soft cloth.
Have the knife sharpened from time to time by a professional knife sharpener.
