What should I know about your knives? Part 1

Magnetic chef knife stand to hold up to nine knives

Japanese knives are so much fun to cook with! From personal experience, this writer can attest to the difference between using any production knife and a handmade, high-quality Japanese knife. Besides the perfect balance, feel and sharpness, it is quite simply fun to use a knife that is so beautiful and comfortable to hold and work with.

With ownership of any high quality product, especially a hand-made product come questions. In this series, I will answer all the common questions. If you have a question YOU would like answered, please send me your request and I will address it in the next post.

  • Dare I use it?
  • Is there anything I need to know about my new knife?
  • How long will it last?
  • How long will it stay sharp?
  • How do I sharpen it?
  • Can I wash it and how?
  • What about maintenance? What are the do's and don'ts?
  • Do you guarantee your knives?

Let's start down the list!

Question: Dare I use it?

Answer:  Oh my goodness gracious, I certainly hope so!  It was made to use, and use a lot for many, many years.

Imagine buying your dream family car.  The time has come, you take the plunge. Would you not use it and instead drive the twelve year old clunker that needs some major engine work on your next outing?

Gregg recently made a custom order knife stand. It would hold up to 9 knives if using both sides of the double sided magnetic cross beam. To illustrate the stand to our customer, I took a photo with a few of my own knives hanging on it. Most of these knives get used on a daily basis and have done so for several years. And I love every one of them!
