Knife care guidelines
In spite of their hardness, ceramic blades are somewhat brittle and need to be treated with due care. They are not suitable for cutting through bones, frozen food or other hard produce.
To reduce wear the blade should be hand washed only. Avoid dropping the knife and do not sharpen with a standard sharpener. Over time, miniscule abrasions or chipping may occur. This is normal wear for the hard material and does not reduce the superb sharpness of the blade.
Damascus blades should be hand washed only and sharpened regularly to maintain sharpness. Due to the supreme sharpness of the blade, the knife should be treated with caution to avoid injury.
