Honing and Sharpening
Honing or sharpening depends on whether your knife has lost its sharpness or if it is really blunt. A blade's loss of sharpness can be treated using a honing steel. For dull, blunt knives, use a sharpener. To ensure a beautifully sharp blade, we recommend you hone your knives regularly, after each use. Regular honing prevents blades from deteriorating quickly.
Clean your knives right after use. Thoroughly wash your blades with a non-abrasive sponge or brush, then dry immediately afterwards. Use warm soapy water. Always carefully dry your knives with the blade facing away from you to prevent unintentional injuries. While Wusthof knives are suitable to clean in the dishwasher, we recommend you hand wash only to prolong the life of your blades. Dishwashers can cause your blades to rub against objects during the cycle, causing the blades to deteriorate.
Proper Knife Storage
Proper storage of your knives ensures they will last for a very long time. There are three ways we recommend storing your knives; knife blocks, magnetic bar holders, and special cases and space saving rolls. Knife blocks help your knives to sit beautifully on your counter top, while keeping them close at hand. Magnetic bars safely hold your knives and provide space. Special cases and space saving rolls allow you to easily transport your knives without causing damage or harm.
Cutting Surfaces should be smooth, easy to clean and "give" on contact while cutting. J.L. Hufford recommends wooden, bamboo cutting boards, or quality polyethylene boards. Avoid surfaces that can dull or damage the knife such as china, marble, granite, tile, Formica, porcelain, stainless counter tops and glass. Remember to thoroughly clean cutting boards immediately after use after use to prevent harmful bacteria growth from developing.
