professional knife sharpening

To ensure the sharpest cutting edge, we recommend professionally sharpening your knives at least once a year.

Nine Fingers Forge offer premium sharpening services and sharpening your knives with us will ensure the longevity of your blade and quality of sharpen.

If you would like your knife professionally maintained please contact us to arrange shipping. We offer this service for a small fee across Australia.

Taking proper care of your knife will ensure its longevity so you can enjoy it for years to come. Although our knives are strong, poor knife care may damage your blade and handle.

 

    • Never put in the dishwasher. Doing so will damage the handle, promote rust and could ruin the sharp edge. Wash with warm soapy water.
    • Do not leave wet or the knife may rust. Dry thoroughly after hand washing and do not store unless fully dry.
    • We highly recommend a protective layer of food grade mineral oil on the knife and timber handle. Apply after washing and drying.
    • Do not cut through bones, frozen foods etc.
    • Do not cut directly on hard surfaces such as a stone bench top; stainless steel sink; or chopping boards made from glass, ceramic and other hard materials. An end grain or plastic chopping board is best.
    • Store knives in the original box, or on a knife magnet or knife block.
    • To ensure the sharpest cutting edge, we recommend professionally sharpening your knives at least once a year.
    • If you do not wish to have your knives professionally maintained, use Japanese whetstones to sharpen your knife.
    • A honing steel can be used lightly in between sharpening on stones. Do not use a diamond or rough steel. We recommend a fine ceramic steel.
    • Not for use as a screwdriver, can opener, or in gun fights.
    • Proper care, along with correct technique will ensure the longevity of your Nine Fingers Forge knife.
    • Damage resulting from improper knife care may void warranty.
