Care Instruction

  • Don't cut hard things! Japanese knives are brittle so bone hacking is a NO NO!
  • Wash with neutral detergent after use, and wipe dry;
  • Please don't wash knife with dishwasher, it will damage the wood handle;
  • Be careful not to leave the knife close to a heat source for a long time;
  • It is a lot more dangerous to cut with a blunt knife than a sharp knife!
  • It is best to sharpen a Japanese knife regularly on a waterstone.
