The 1095 damascus steel that makes up the blades of the knives offers impressive edge retention, as it has a higher carbon content. As a result, these knives stay sharp longer, but they are more prone to corrosion. When the time comes to maintain them, a few precautions are in order;
Never store your knife in the sheath if either is wet;
Always store the knife in a dry environment;
After cleaning and drying your knife, you should lubricate it with mineral oil (food grade) to prevent moisture from affecting the blade. This will keep your knife rust free and maintain its unique beauty until its next use.
Properly cared for, the Green Trail G3770 Fillet Knife is built to last a lifetime.
