How to Care for Your Premium Japanese Knives

Your premium Japanese knives are handcrafted by skilled artisans using the finest materials and techniques. They are designed to deliver exceptional performance and durability for your five-star cuisine. To preserve the quality and longevity of your knives, please follow these simple tips:

  • Always wash your knives by hand with a mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads that can damage the blade. Rinse thoroughly and dry immediately with a clean towel. Never leave your knives wet or soaked, as this can cause rust and corrosion.
  • Avoid putting your knives in the dishwasher or dryer, as this can expose them to high temperatures, moisture, and harsh chemicals that can ruin the blade and handle. Dishwashers and dryers can also cause your knives to bump against other items and chip or break.
  • Store your knives in a safe and dry place, away from humidity and direct sunlight. You can use a knife block, a magnetic strip, a sheath, or a case to protect your knives from dust, moisture, and scratches. Do not store your knives loose in a drawer or cabinet, as this can damage the blade and pose a safety hazard.
  • Sharpen your knives regularly to maintain their optimal edge and performance. You can use a whetstone to sharpen your knives at home. Do not use dull or blunt knives, as they can cause more damage to the food and increase the risk of injury.
  • Use your knives only for their intended purpose: cutting food. Do not use your knives to cut frozen food, hard food (such as pumpkin, corn, or rice cake), bones, or metal. Do not use your knives to pry, chop, hammer, or stab. These actions can damage the blade and make it chip or break.
  • Keep your knives out of reach of children and pets. Your knives are very sharp and dangerous if handled improperly. Teach your children about knife safety and supervise them if they want to learn how to cook with you.
