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.

Knife Sharpening


A sharp knife is always safer than a dull knife.

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

Is a Nakiri only for Vegetables?

The Nakiri knife is traditionally used for cutting and preparing vegetables and it was specifically designed for this purpose. The design of the Nakiri knife is primarily focused on vegetable preparation, but its versatility allows it to serve multiple purposes in the kitchen. The Nakiri knife's efficient cutting motion and flat profile make it an ideal tool for chopping herbs, garlic, onions, and finely cutting ingredients such as tofu or cheese. Its straight edge ensures uniform cuts, enhancing the presentation of dishes that require precise slicing.

With its sharp and thin blade, a nakiri can even be used to slice thinner, boneless cuts of meat. However, Nakiri knives are not intended for butchery and should be kept away from bones. A knife of precision, a Nakiri should also not be used on hard squash and should never be wielded with excessive force.

Whether you're a professional chef or a home cook who frequently works with vegetables, adding a Nakiri knife to your collection can greatly enhance your culinary experience.
