MetroKitchen.com recommends washing your Victorinox Forschner Rosewood knives by hand; then immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts. They may stain the surface of your knives.
Always use a wooden cutting board to preserve blade sharpness. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after you've used a knife.
It's best to store your Victorinox Forschner Rosewood knives so edges and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
Lifetime Forschner Victorinox guarantee against material and manufacturing defects, with normal use and proper care.
