Here are some tips about using high carbon knives in the kitchen:
1) After using, promptly wash and dry your knife, especially when cutting acidic foods such as tomatoes.
2) Always hand-wash your knife instead of using the dishwasher.
3) Apply a couple drops of food-grade oil to your knife (blade, and handle too!) on occasion.
4) If your knife ever does miss a washing and gets a bit of rust, simply wash, dry, then oil it.
5) To help preserve a keen edge, use a sharpening rod or strop on occasion.
6) Over time, the blade will take on an ever-changing patina, which is one of the unique things about using high carbon in the kitchen!
