How to look after Japanese knives?

Like most equipment, knives need a little love and care. To make it easy, these are 7 general rules you should follow:

We recommend using Japanese Whetstones.

Sharpen them regularly!

1

Store your knives either on the magnetic knife strip,  knife stand, or sheathed in the utensil drawer.

Store them properly

2

Avoid hard or metal surfaces, such as stainless steel, concrete, granite and aluminium. Opt for wooden cutting boards instead.

Cut on the right surfaces

3

Don’t air dry knives.

Once you finish cleaning them, dry them thoroughly- that is until they are fully, utterly, extremely dry.

5

Don’t put your knife in a dishwasher, ever.

Don’t slide your knife, blade down, across the cutting board to clear away what you just chopped.

6

Don’t use them for anything other than food!
