      • 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.
      • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
      • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
      • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
      • Store the knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
