Knife care and rust

Yes. All stainless steel knives will corrode in difficult environment, even if the process is very slow.

What usually happens when a knife loses its sharpness is that rather than chipping, the top of the edge bends to one side. The sharpening steel works by aligning the edge back into a central position. Our sharpening steel is a smooth polishing steel which gives the knife edge maximum sharpness by aligning the edge. There is a coarser side of the steel that is used for grinding when the edge is more ragged. Remember to finish sharpening with the polished surface. To sharpen the knife, pull the knife’s edge a few times lightly against a sharpening steel with a 15-20 degree angle. Switch between both sides of the knife. The knife should be placed against the sharpening steel at the same angle as the blade has at the top of its cutting edge. This angle between the sharpening steel and knife edge must be maintained while drawing the knife from the back to the tip. The pressure against the steel should be relatively high, if the edge is very damaged, to push it back into alignment, and then gradually reduced to a feather light stroke at the last pull.

Wash your knife with warm water and a soft sponge before using it for the first time. Never cut bones, frozen food, porcelain, glass and other hard substances. The thinnest part of the blade can easily be deformed. Do not clean the knives in a dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent contains abrasives that make the knife blunt and damage the wooden finish. Do not allow acidic residues (lemons, limes, orange, grapefruits, tomatoes) to stay on the blades for extended periods of time. Always thoroughly clean and wipe knives dry before storing. Leaving knives wet or to drip-dry may result in discoloration. After cutting, do not scrape the cutting board with the knife’s edge as it blunts the blade. Instead, turn the knife around and scrape with the back of the knife.

It all depends on what resources and equipment you’ve got at hand. For more advanced users a TORMEK grinder at home may be an option (they also have plenty of informative and educational videos available on YouTube). In the field more easily carried diamond sharpeners (medium/fine and extra fine) come in handy. For an extra last touch, finish with stroping the knife on the back side of a leather belt.

Fire starter

To prevent the fire starter from getting “road bumps” like a washboard, try using the knife in different angles when lighting the fire. This may ride out the bumps.

You need to have some speed in the movement as the sparks have a limited time of burning. It is important that it spends of its burning time on the tinder you want to light on fire and less time in contact with the blade spine. If your strikes are too slow, a torching or welding on the blade spine might show up. This may anneal the sharp edge of the spine, with the result of the spine losing hardness and going blunt. This is fairly easy to fix with a basic diamond honer, drawing some strikes across the spine.

If the knife’s spine is pulled towards the ignition too slowly most of the “planer shavings” burn at the spine instead of flying away and lighting the fire. This may anneal the sharp corner of the knife blade, with the result of the spine losing hardness and going blunt. A torching or welding on the blade spine might show up. This may anneal the sharp corner of the knife blade, with the result of the spine losing hardness and going blunt.
