- 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, your knife should not need sharpening 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 berlioz285 from exceptional cutlery If I went by negative reviews I would never risk buying anything.These knives are what I have always wanted.A received these as a Christmas gift.I will use nothing but WUSTHOF from now on.I love the Craftmanship.I am a real wusthof user not a competitor giving a bad review.Date published: 2017-01-02Rated 3 out of 5 by AuntieMame from Too good to be true I should have known 75% off was too good to be true - the knives are lovely and sharp, but the handles are plastic (not wood) and the overall weight for each one lighter than the "original" 18-piece knife set we purchased years ago.Date published: 2016-12-21
