About the knife steel:
52100 high carbon is an awesomesteel alloy for kitchen knives that is often preferred by professional chefs. This steel needsattention and care with every use. Since carbon steels can rust easily, your blade should be wiped dry after everyuse and never stored in a sheath. It should never be left wet or sitting in a wet sink. Over time, a natural patina colorization will develop. This is a natural process of oxidization and is a sign of a well-used blade.
Our knives are not intended for, nor will they survive being put into a dishwasher! We offer a full warranty on our knives, however, damage due to negligence (rusting of blade) and or dishwasher use will require a repair fee.
