Care & Use Instructions

To prevent darkening and copper green rust, wash the knife with a gentle detergent immediately after use. Wipe away water so the oxidation film covers the surface equally.

To remove darkening and rust, polish with a mixture of salt and vinegar. Natural luster will come out again after polishing. For hard to remove dirt, soak the knife overnight in vinegar diluted with water and polish in the morning.
