The knives on this website are awesome in the hand and scary sharp right from the off. Having said this, they do need a little looking after. Nothing too tedious but just a little love. Key to this is a rust eraser to help remove any marks to your blades.
"I will put my hand up and say on a couple of, perhaps drunken, occasions I may have left a carbon steel knife wet to drastic effect. Let's just say I am glad I had my tetanus jab. Part of the joy of owning carbon steel knives is caring for them and ensuring they are super sharp and rust free. Grab a rust eraser and give your knives some love!"
