We would recommend washing your knives by hand under lukewarm water with a mild detergent and a non-scratch cloth or sponge to prevent premature wear caused by aggressive detergents.
Do not exceed a washing temperature of 55 °C.
Caring for wooden handles
Always wash these knives by hand. We recommend regularly oiling wooden handles with linseed oil or applying beeswax to prevent the wood from becoming dry and brittle. This will restore protection on the handles and the wood will retain its satin sheen and rich colour.
