Use & Care


  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best gifts from our Registry! My husband and I wanted a set of knives that would last us a lifetime. So we registered for this set.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing set This set is a dream come true! The knives are gorgeous. There is a knife for everything. There are more knives than anyone could possibly ever need to cook, but it's really fun to own such an amazing collection. Having so many knives to choose from makes cooking just a bit more fun. I'm very happy with this purchase. The block is proudly displayed on my counter. I spent a lot of time thinking about if I wanted the Shun set or this one but for the way I cook (more westernized) this set was the one for me. I also like how these knives feel in my hands vs. how the Shun knives feel in my hand.
