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.

Amazing Knife

The customer service with this company is second to none. I didn't realize they were closed on Fridays and I was hoping to pick up my knife before the long Memorial Day weekend. I reached out on social media and they arranged someone to meet me at the shop to pick up my knife! This knife was the talk of the BBQ. Beautiful craftsman's ship and cant believe how sharpe and light it is. I will be adding more to my collections soon.
