Care Instructions

Japanese kitchen knives requires some attention. It's crucial to pay attention to the following points.

Correct use
• Always use the appropriate knife for the task.
• Refrain from moving the knife in a lateral direction.
• Avoid bones, frozen food, and ingredients with hard seeds.
• Always use a wooden or rubbing cutting board. Avoid hard plastic, glass, or marble. 

• Wash and dry the blade as soon as you're done with it especially carbon steel knives.
• Always wash your Japanese kitchen knife by hand. Never use a dishwasher.

Knife maintenance
 Use sharpening whetstones to sharpen or touch up your Japanese knife. Honing rods are not recommended as using these will cause damage to the edge. Only use a honing rod on western knives; never use them on Japanese knives.
