* Not every knife is signed on the blade by the craftsman who made it
Considering the high carbon steel used for the blade and the extreme construction quality of these knives, we recommend a series of attentions to follow to maintain the quality of the product over time.
- Never put the knife in the dishwasher
- Rinse the knife with warm water before the first use
- Rinse the knife immediately after each use without aggressive dishwashing detergent and dry with a soft cloth (always starting at the back of the cutting edge)
- Aggressive foods such as lemon juice must be immediately rinsed immediately after use
- Do not use glass or granite slabs as a cutting support. Use only wooden bases
- Take care that the blade edge of the knife does not come into contact with other metal objects during its storage to avoid damage to the blade edge.
