Knife Care

Following proper care and maintenance will help prolong the life of your knife and ensure excellent performance.

  • Always keep your knife dry and clean!
  • Hand wash with warm soapy water. No abrasive sponges.
  • Never put your knife in the dishwasher or leave it soaking in water.
  • Dry your knife completely using an absorbent towel. We find paper towels work the best.

Important Information: All stainless steel contains some level of carbon, which is important for sharpness and performance. Because of this, light hueing can develop on stainless steel if not cleaned and dried properly.

Sharpening

A sharp knife is always safer than a dull knife.

When when your knife starts to feel dull, its time to have it sharpened. Learn more about knife sharpening for Town Cutler knives.

I purchased this beautiful knife for my son after graduating from the USCG A School. He is looking forward to filleting his first fish in the FL Keys.

what a beauty!

I am a butcher. as a rule, I don't buy "cool knives". I might have to rethink that. Sharp as hell and feels great in my hand. The craftsmanship is obvious as soon as you open the box.
