KNIFE CARE      It is always a good idea to look after your knives.  If you paid good money for it, it should outlast you.

1)  Have your name and phone number etched on the blade, so that it can be easily identified if it falls into the wrong hands.  Most of my knives have a serial number which I record.

2) Keep your knife out of the sheath and somewhere dry, preferably hanging up.  The reason for keeping it out of the sheath or scabbard is that the leather often contains residue of tannic acid, which can rust the blade.

3) Keep a good edge on it,

4) After use always clean it under the tap using any washing- up liquid.   Dry and if the blade is carbon steel and oil it lightly with vegetable oil.  It is better not to immerse knives, apart from diving knives, in water for any length of time.

5 ) Kitchen knives should never be put in the dishwasher.  The heat can damage the cutting edge the glue and the handle material it self.   Keep them in a knife block.  Storing them in a drawer spoils the edge and can result in cut fingers if you are in a hurry.
