We recommend cleaning your knife immediately after use, using a sponge and washing in the direction of the grain with warm, soapy water, drying thoroughly immediately after washing. Doing so before any grime has a chance to set in will make washing your knife a quick and easy process. A mild scouring pad or powder can be used for more stubborn grime, but we recommend against more heavy-duty products such as steel wool, which can leave scratches on the blade and handles.
Please do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives.
While our knives are reasonably water and heat resistant, be sure to dry your knives immediately after cleaning and before storage. We recommend against prolonged soaking.
To keep your knives looking great we recommend occasionally applying mineral oil and/or our beekeeper’s gold wood preserver to both blade and handle to seal out moisture and protect the rich colors of wood and acrylic.
Never use a knife for prying or twisting. The steel in most knives is too rigid for such tasks and will chip or snap under force.
Be sure to store your knives in a manner that protects the knife and its surroundings from accidental damage.
