Carbon Steel Knives Care & Maintenance
Carbon steel knife blades are harder and have a finer grain structure than stainless steel knives and require more care. Victory knives have a fine plastic coating over the blade. This is to protect the knife from moisture during storage and shipping, which can cause rust.
How to Care for your Carbon Knife
- Hand wash the knife in mild soap and dry it thoroughly after use.
- Knives in carbon and laminate steel must not be washed in a dishwasher under any circumstances. The aggressive dishwasher detergent will react very badly with the blade.
- Store in a safe and dry place.
