Correct use and care

• To avoid accidental injury and blade damage, treat knives with respect and always take care when handling these knives.
• TAKUMI knives are not dishwasher-safe.
• To avoid rust, immediately clean and dry the blades after contact with food.
• Keep your knives in a knife block, on magnetic strip or in a knife sheath to protect the blades and prevent damage to the cutting edge by other utensils.
• If the knives are not used for a while, wrap them in a cloth or newspaper and store them in a dry place.
• Cutting on a soft , non-abrasive surface such as timber or plastic cutting board will help prevent premature dulling of the blade.
• Don not use the knives to cut hard foods, like shellfish or frozen food, and avoid tilting the blade when cutting, as this could damage the delicate cutting edge.
Regular use Whet-stone or recommended sharpener will ensure that your knives retain their keen razor sharp edge. 


 The recommended sharpener for Takumi knives:  KAI 貝印 Whetstone Grit 1000/3000 or SEKIMAGOROKU 関孫六 3 Stage Knife Sharpener.
