Cut on wooden or plastic surfaces, avoid metal, granite glass or ceramic.
The blade may discolour with use, especially after contact with acidic food like tomatoes or citrus. This does not harm the blade, it can be cleaned with some fine steel wool if desired.
Clean the blade immediately after use with water, then dry it. Don't let it stay wet for too long.
Please, never put it into a dishwasher.
Clean the handle with a damp cloth. Keep the handled lightly oiled with some cooking oil.
Store them in a wooden knife block or on a wall mounted magnet. Avoid storage in drawers unless the blade is wrapped up.
Keep the blade sharp using a steel or ceramic stick. Repair the edge with a diamond or water stone.
With proper care the knife will last for many generations.
The knife is meant to be used, please enjoy it.
