NEVER put a custom knife in a dishwasher. You will be horribly disappointed with the result
- S35vn and AEB-L are both high carbon stainless steels. As such both perform well as stainless, but any steel will rust or stain without proper care
- Hand-wash and dry after use, if storing for a long period, lubricate using anything food-safe if it’s a kitchen or food knife, or any oil if not used on food

- OR any other high carbon non-stainless steel. Care for it as you would a firearm and you’ll likely never have an issue. High-acidity foods will stain these steels to varying degrees, this is normal, doesn’t present health issues and doesn’t harm the blade. The patina they develop is similar to well-aged cast iron, enjoy the process.
- I will sharpen or refurbish any blade I make for the cost of shipping both ways. Simply email: email@example.com for a shipping address and timeframe to get started.
