This is a semi-stainless steel knife. The blade has higher corrosion and stain resistance than carbon steel knives but will slowly oxidize with use over time. Hand wash and towel dry. Do not put it in the dishwasher. Do not air dry.



Twisting, scraping and heavy use as well as use on hard and very dense objects can lead to edge damage. Using a quality wooden cutting board will keep a sharper edge for longer. Cutting surface materials like glass, ceramic and bamboo will make the edge go dull quickly and should be avoided.

We recommend hand sharpening on whetstones. We have found that most Japanese knives perform best at a finer finish starting around 4000 grit. Avoid pull through sharpeners and non-water cooled mechanized sharpening. Ceramic honing rods are preferred.
