Important notes and care instructions:
1. To clean: wipe the blade and handle with a damp, soapy cloth, and promptly dry.
2. DO NOT store the knife wet or leave it submerged/soaking in water and NEVER EVER wash it in a dishwasher.
3. Occasionally apply a small amount of food-safe mineral oil to the blade (and the handle) to preserve beauty, and maintain rust resistance. Avoid using cooking oils, as they can become rancid over time.
