TIPS FOR PROPER KNIFE CARE AND STORAGE
- Please do not leave food residue on the knife. After use, wash immediately in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. The acid and/or fat and moisture of food residue can cause rust and discoloration to the knife.
- Please do not put GLOBAL knives in a dishwasher. The harsh environment during the wash cycle will harm the knife and in turn, cause corrosion.
- Always store GLOBAL knives in a dry atmosphere. It is recommended to store GLOBAL knives either in a GLOBAL Knife Block or on our Magnetic Knife Rack.
