CARING FOR YOUR NEW CARBON STEEL KNIFE
This Cleaver is hand-forged from high carbon steel with the black iron oxide left on the blade to give it a premium hand-forged look. Please clean the knife before using it for the first time using soapy water and drying with a hand towel. Leaving it wet will cause the blade to corrode and get rust marks on the blade.
Some of the black iron oxide will peel off after the first couple of cleans, but it will keep its hand-forged look for years to come.
The shiny part of the blade will turn a dull blue colour over time called patina, but it is perfectly normal and will help protect the blade from corroding. Some acidic foods, like chicken and lemon, will instantly leave patina marks due to its acidic nature, but that adds to the uniqueness of the knife. For day to day use we recommend washing it with soap and water, but please ensure to dry it immediately.
High carbon steel is robust and long-lasting and will keep its edge longer than stainless steel.
