1. Clean & Dry Your Cutlery After Each Use
Our cutlery is made from the finest high-carbon stainless steel and our knives are fantastically sharp. To keep your cutlery in pristine condition, be sure to hand wash it with a mild soap and then dry it thoroughly after each use to keep rust and water spots away.
2. Dishwasher Approved But Not Our First Choice
While our cutlery is dishwasher approved, we think of these tools as investment pieces and recommend you handwash it. But if you're in a pinch every now and then, you won't ruin it -but it can cause blades to dull faster.
3. Give Your Knife a Protective Coat
A great way to help keep your knife in tip-top shape is to occasionally rub the (cleaned and dried) blade with coconut oil. This will keep it shimmering, sharp and spot-free while not in use.
4. Water Spots? Gently Scrub Away
If your blade does develop water spots, use a non-steel kitchen scrubber with mild dish soap. Gently scrub the stainless steel to get rid of pesky spots, and then hand-dry the knife immediately. It'd be a good idea to oil the knife blade again at this point.
5. Keep it Sharp!
It's like a tune-up for your knife. There are many ways to do this: using a honing steel, a knife stone or even sending it out to a professional. You'll be amazed at how easily that fantastically sharp blade comes back to life.
6. Cut on the Right Surface
By all means, please stay away from marble, glass or metal cutting boards - they may be glamorous, but they are AWFUL for your knife's blade. Plastic isn't much better, but it works. The best surface by far is a wood cutting board.
7. Channel Your Inner Sushi Chef
Next time you're in a sushi restaurant, see for yourself. Sushi chefs use a moist cloth to wipe off their tools in between using them with different foods. This is especially true when cutting highly acidic foods like lemons.
8. Handle with Care - Literally
Your new cutlery has a handle made of walnut wood that has been stabilized to prevent drying, cracking or splintering. But if you ever see signs of wear overtime, you'll want to season it. Use our all-natural wood seasoning to keep the wood extra hydrated.
