How to Maintain Semi-stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry, and do not use a dishwasher to clean it. If you don't plan to use the knives for an extended period, be sure to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

If you notice rust on the blade later on, you can remove it with a rust eraser. For minor rust on the mirror-finished parts, use rust removal paste. After cleaning, be sure to remove any remaining residue with a Cleaning Naphtha to eliminate all chemical remnants from the blade.

Please use the knives correctly. Different knives are designed for slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Do not use them for purposes beyond their intended use to avoid damage.

We highly recommend using EDCI's high-tech rust prevention spray to maintain your semi-stainless steel knives. EDCI rust prevention spray is made in the USA, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, poses no harm to the environment, and is non-flammable.

It is also food-grade rust prevention spray, suitable for knives made of any type of steel. After spraying, it automatically forms a protective layer, and it can be used directly for cutting food without contaminating it. Users no longer need to worry about rust on semi-stainless steel knives.
