- Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
- Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
- Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Fun to use! These knives are such a pleasure to use! You actually find yourself looking around for things to chop. The design makes holding the knife feel very effortless and enjoyable to concentrate on technique. I don't put mine in the dishwasher since the handle is wood and they still look like new after several years use.Date published: 2013-01-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Emrin from Beautiful knives My mother gave me this set as a gift last year and I absolutely love it. The D-shaped handles on the knives make them very comfortable to use (I'm left handed and the shape works well for me) and they are easy to keep clean. The grain of the wood is beautiful and I really like that you can see the wavy layers of the metal. I've received quite a few compliments on these knives.Date published: 2012-11-27
