MAINTENANCE

All our knife products need good care in order to keep them clean and their blades to be razor-sharp.
No matter how good the knife is, the blade will become blunt after some time of use. Then you will need to sharpen your knife to keep it in good condition. 
After all, what matters is how to sharpen your knife. Taking care of your knife correctly might prolong its life for over 30 years.
Here are some tips on how to maintain your knives.
  • Properly clean them after use. Don't keep any kind of food on the blade after cutting. A certain blade material can get rusty because of chemical reactions with acid, water and so.
  • When you feel the blade gets blunt, it is time to sharpen your knife.
  •  For sharpening the blades, we highly recommend you use whetstones for any kind of knives. 
  • Sharpening your knives is not so easy for someone who does it once a month. It requires some experience to have it done correctly. 
  • You need to have the right sharpening stones, preferably three different grit; #400, #1000, #3000 and one called flattening stone/block. 
  • All stones must have flat surfaces. If not, you need to have them flattened by using a flattening stone.
  • Be aware that some stones need to be damped before use.
  • Make sure that you have enough space to work on sharpening freely and have the stone on a non-slip mat for security reasons, preferably near a sink.
  • How to sharpen the blade depends on a type of knife.
