Congratulations on your new hand forged blade!
For maximum performance and a nice long life, your carbon steel knife will require a little maintenance. Wash your knife in warm soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.
Never place your knife in the dishwasher or leave it soaking in water.
When not in use, your knife should be clean, dry and well oiled with a food grade oil such as Terra Nova Oil. After oiling well store in sheath to protect.
Do not let your knife become dull. Sharpen your knife regularly for best performance. Remember it is always safer to use a sharp knife.
