General maintenance for knives with wooden handles

Knives with wooden handles need a slightly different treatment and should definitely not be put in the dishwasher. When you wash them under running water, try to make sure the handle doesn’t get too wet. In fact, it is better to clean the handle with a damp cloth. Avoid extreme temperatures, high humidity and harsh cleaning agents.
We also recommend that you treat the handle with a conventional cooking oil or with our protective waxfrom time to time to prevent moisture from entering and to refresh its natural color and grain. You can use a canola or flaxseed oil, and we highly recommend using a cold-pressed oil, which won’t get stuck in the fine pores of the wood and will go into the grain of the wood better.
