Sharpening & Maintenance of the steak knife

The compact Swiss precision sharpener.

Maintaining Elegance - Cleaning
Surgical steel, damask steel and wood, the core materials of our knives, require attention and care: knives with wooden handles are not dishwasher-safe and should not be stored wet. It is best to wash high-quality knives by hand and dry them thoroughly after use. For gastronomy we offer a pot with a cut-resistant rubber mat: filled with some water, knives can be temporarily stored blade-first until they are hand-washed.

For the Perfect Edge - Sharpening
Usually, the steak knives only wear out in the front part. For this purpose, we have developed a grinding tool with two different stages. With step 1 (on the left side), the blade can be pre-sharpened: draw the blade through about 10x. Afterwards, test the sharpness of the blade using the finger nail or a piece of paper. Use stage 2 to polish the cutting edge (also draw through about 10x).

For steak knives used privately, we recommend sharpening the knives twice a year. For knives used daily (in gastronomy), they should be sharpened every two months.

To achieve a perfect grind of the knife blade, we have had fine polishing stones specially made in Japan. The pre-sharpening and the polishing stone of the sharpener correspond to a 2,000 grit grinding stone. Ideally suited for our sknife pocket knife and for high-quality kitchen knives.

Preserving the Original Beauty - Oiling
To ensure your knives stand the test of time, we recommend oiling the hand-crafted wooden handles: 2-3 times a year for home use, and every 2 months for daily use in gastronomy. Our carefully selected organic macadamia oil penetrates deeply into the wood, protects it from moisture, and enhances its natural beauty.

Durability - Surgical Steel & Stabilized Wood
The sknife knives have been in daily use for 5 years in the top restaurants and hotels on the French Riviera - the Côte d'Azur.

The Swiss precision sharpener with an integrated replacement grinding unit ensures the daily sharpness and maintenance of pocket knives. The 5-micron diamond-infused polishing leather (on the underside of the S-S-3) allows for effortless stropping, achieving razor-blade sharpness for pocket knives as well as high-quality kitchen knives at sushi chef level. The integrated ceramic stones for pre-sharpening and polishing serve as replacements and can be easily inserted into the sharpener after approximately 500 knives have been sharpened.
