I recently purchased the 3 pc. Tojiro gift set as a gift for a friend. To my great surprise, they brought tears to his eyes. (thanks for that)

Unfortunately, he's never had Japanese knives and isn't sure how to best care for them. (other than wash/dry after use) Inside the box lid was a couple pieces of paper about the knives...but what little bit I saw, they were printed in Japanese...which neither of us reads.
Do you have any "sage advice" that you can send me for him?

Thanks,

Neil

Hi Neil,

That's nice. I'm glad your friend liked them.

So here are a few don'ts:

Don't wash in dish washer
Don't cut frozen foods
Don't cut bones
Don't cut on glass or ceramic cutting boards
Don't use as a screw driver or can opener.....

That should cover most of it.

LOL! I loved the last "Don't" in the list... it might seem common sense, but I have seen tips broken from those same uses. Though I guess arguably a broken tip could make it a better screwdriver... ;)

The first one is not so apparent though. Unless it is a butter knife, a cheap plastic handled steak knife, or an extremely cheap serrated "chef's" knife (never buy those! lol), ALWAYS wash your knives by hand! The dish washer is no place for a big knife, even cheap ones. It is just too harsh on the blade and handle even if the knife is supposedly dish washer safe.
