CARING FOR YOUR CARBON BLADES
It’s very important to wash and hand-dry thoroughly after each use. Carbon has a tendency to react with acid, so it’s good practice to wipe the blade with a towel in between foods. As the steel is exposed to different elements, it will begin to naturally oxidize, or patina. Over time, this patina will act as a protective layer against rusting and discoloration.
REMOVING RUST, WATER STAINS OR UNWANTED PATINA
- First, you can take a used 3M™ scrubbing sponge (a new one would be too abrasive) with a little bit of detergent and rub lengthwise*.
- If that doesn’t work, take the same used sponge and use a powdered scrubbing compound like Bon Ami® or Comet®
- If that still doesn’t work, use a NEW 3M™ scrubbing sponge with cleaning compound.
- Beyond that, you will need to use a Polishing Kit.
