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, 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 from Love them! Treated myself to the 23-piece Wusthof block, and I love them. It's the way they feel in my hand. When you're buying knives, hold them and buy the ones that feel like they fit you. Then keep them sharp so it's the blade doing the cutting, not your arm & shoulder.
