Here is what you need to know to care for your Knife:
• Carbon Steel
1 Hone your knife when necessary.
2 Wipe your knife clean after each use with a dry clean cloth. If you fail to do so, you could allow for rust to form and damage your blade.
3 Wash your knife when possible after use to remove any residue or substances that could result in rust formation. Use warm water and soft cloth.
4 Hand-dry your knife immediately after cleaning.
5 Treat with 3-in-oil, mineral oil (especially if used on food), or Renaissance Wax to prevent corrosion.
6 Store knife is a dry environment. If carried in a leather sheath, remove before storing it.
• Stainless Steel
1 Stainless Steel is rust/corrosion resistant, not rust/corrosion-proof, so the same measures utilized on carbon steels can be used on stainless as well.
***DO NOT wash your custom knife in the dishwasher!***
***You, the owner of the knife, is ultimately responsible for the care of your implement***
