KNIVES LIKE NEW
Hand wash and dry knives. Never put away wet.
Cut on a wood or plastic board
Don’t chop—stoke when cutting
Don’t wash in the dishwasher-heat and bumping isn’t good for the blade.
Store so knives don’t collide. A knife block or sheathing will protect the blade
If the knife block has vertical slots put the knives in upside down. Horizontal knife blocks are the best.
