Keep this blade dry when not in use to avoid rust. Please remember that the core is not stainless and should be dried after use (check our maintenance tips here). The blade will develop a dark patina with normal use, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive or sharpening. 

Like most equipment, knives need a little love and care. You need to sharpen them regularly and depending on the type of steel, dry them immediately after use. These are 3 general rules you should follow: 

  1. Don’t put your knife in a dishwasher, ever. 
  2. Store your knives either on the magnetic knife strip, knife stand, or sheathed in the utensil drawer. 
  3. Don’t slide your knife, blade down, across the cutting board to clear away what you just chopped.
