Care when storing on a magnetic bar.

When removing a knife from a magnetic bar tip the sharpened edge off the bar first so you don’t dull it.

Always include a penny when gifting a knife

Posted on December 3, 2016 in: Uncategorized









“There is a folklore superstition regarding the giving of a knife as a gift. If the knife is given to a friend, money must be exchanged as well. It is considered very bad luck to give someone a knife without exchanging money or the friendship will be cut by the knife. Because of this superstition, it is common that the gift of a knife will be given along with a penny, nickel or dime in the box with the knife so that the recipient can give back the coin, thereby saving the friendship from being severed by the giving of the sharp blade. The exact background of this superstition is unclear yet; even today most people will include a coin with the gift of a knife and request the coin be given back. The apparent view is that it is far better to be safe than sorry.”

I had a chef’s knife, a utility knife, and a paring knife sharpened just before Thanksgiving, and they were indeed sharper than when I first purchased them, and worked beautifully! Much better edges than I got with the sharpening I got some years ago when I took my knives to a shop in ########. My first time at Brunswick Winter Market, too — I’ll definitely be back!

Never wash your knives in the dishwasher.

Posted on November 21, 2016 in: Uncategorized






Never, soak your knives in the sink or put them in the dishwasher as it will corrode the rivets that hold the scales on the knife. This is premium brand knife. The dishwasher can rust knives too as stainless steel is not stainless.
