Care Advisements: This blade has a stainless cladding around most of the knife except for the edge, which is fully carbon. Care must still be used to avoid rust especially on the carbon portion of the blade. Wipe dry after each use, and ideally between preparing different products, especially when using acidic and salty products. A patina will form over time on the carbon portion helping increase stain resistance slightly. Hand wash and dry only. Store away from liquids and open windows. Keep the blade covered when storing or traveling. Use only on appropriate cutting surfaces such as softer woods and plastics.
