Care Instructions: To avoid rusting, it is recommended that carbon steel blades are kept oiled. Do not soak in water and never place in the dishwasher. To clean the knife, wipe the blade with a damp cloth and dry immediately. To reduce the frequency of re-sharpening, wooden chopping boards are recommended. If your carbon steel blade is beginning to rust, use a scouring pad and an acid, such as vinegar and gently rub it on the affected area. After the rust has been removed, dry the blade, re-sharpen and oil to prevent future rusting.
