8. How can I sharpen my knives?
You can find detailed information on how to sharpen your knives here.
9. How can I maintain my knife?
Keep the knife dry and clean. If it comes into contact with saltwater or any substance you are unsure of, rinse it immediately with fresh water, dry it, and lubricate it with synthetic oils. For folding knives, keep the opening mechanisms clean and lubricate them regularly, then open and close the blade several times, drying any excess. We recommend performing cleaning and maintenance operations without disassembling the knife, as excessive disassembly and reassembly could impair the knife's functionality. Do not use the blade as a can opener, chisel, screwdriver, or for any job the knife was not designed for. Do not use the knife's back or front as a hammer, as it could cause the handle and metal components to break. If a sheath or any case is included with the knife purchase, ensure that the inside is always clean, as dirt could scratch the blade's surface or hinder sheathing and unsheathing operations.
10. Do you offer knife maintenance and sharpening services?
Yes, we offer knife maintenance and sharpening services. The service cost varies based on the product and blade length, and shipping costs are borne by the customer. If interested, fill out the request form here.
