Knife Care

Step-by-Step Care Guide

  1. Cleaning Your Knife: After using your knife, wash it with warm soapy water. Make sure to dry it off right away with a clean towel to keep it from getting rusty.

  2. Oil It Up: Once your knife is dry, grab a piece of cloth or a paper towel and rub a little oil on the blade. Mineral oil is the best choice because it's safe for food and doesn't go bad. If you don't have mineral oil, you can use cooking oil, but it's not good for keeping your knife stored for a long time.

  3. Dealing with Rust: It's okay if your knife gets a little rusty; you can fix it! Just use some apple cider vinegar or lemon juice to clean the rust spots. After that, wash it with soapy water, dry it, and oil it up like usual. As your knife gets older, it will get a cool pattern and won't rust as easily.

Quick Tips for You

  • Always wash your knife with warm soapy water and dry it right away.
  • Before you put your knife away, coat it with mineral oil to protect it.
  • If rust shows up, you can clean it with a bit of vinegar, no worries!
  • Don't keep your knife in a leather roll for a long time because it can make your knife wet and rusty. If you need to, put a lot of oil on your knife before storing it there.
