  • How do I care for carbon steel?
    High carbon tool steel is not stainless it will rust if not properly cared for. Care is not difficult, but you do have to remember to do a couple of things after each use: #1 Wash the knife promptly after each use. Many people are used to stainless knives that can be left in a kitchen sink and washed later. With carbon steel knives this will result in rust. Normal dishwashing soap on a sponge or dish rag is perfectly fine. #2 Dry the knife. This can not be stressed enough. A carbon steel knife left to air dry on its own will rust. After washing the knife remember to dry it with a soft cloth. Be very careful of the cutting edge! It’s sharp! #3 NEVER EVER EVER put your carbon steel knife in the dishwasher! . . . ever. . . don’t do it. . . please. #4 Keep it somewhere safe. Many kitchen knives become dull and damaged, not through use, but from banging around in a drawer with other knives.
