- 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 promptly rinsed immediately after use

- Pay attention that the cutting edge of the knife does not come into contact with other metal objects during its deposit to avoid damage to the cutting edge.
