Never use your knife on a bone or on a shell and keep away from the dishwasher and frozen products. It is important never to attempt to bend the blade, and we always recommend using a wooden board.
It is important to maintain your knife by cleaning and drying it immediately after each use.
In some cases, black spots may appear on the blade; they are natural and desirable. It is called patina, it will protect your knife against rust and oxidation.
It is essential to sharpen your Japanese knife on water stones. Depending on your frequency of use, Stay Sharp recommends maintenance every 6 months at a minimum. If you are a cook, this interval can be reduced by half.
