Caring for your Skalpel


All our knives are made from SF100 Sheffield Stainless Steel..

This means our blades are very easy to sharpen and will hold a great edge.

However, they will rust if not properly looked after.

Please do not place your knives in the dish washer.

Skalpel knives should be washed by hand & dried immediately.

Wiping the blade with a little oil now and again will also help them develop a nice even patina.

Cutting on hard surfaces (e.g. glass, granite) will dull your knife more quickly.

Store your knife out of harms way. Never place loosely or unprotect in a drawer with other steel utensils.

To prevent damaging the edge avoid cutting through bones and brittle foods.
