Description

Hand-made hunting knife by Ken van Niekerk in Pretoria, South Africa.
See my process for making knives (here).

Some guidelines for the care of your knife.

  1. Always wipe and dry your knife after use.
  2. Wash with warm soapy water, rinse and dry.
  3. Do not place in dishwasher.
  4. Do not place your knife in an oven and avoid excessive heat. This may weaken the structure of the steel.
  5. Do not strike the knife with another metal object.
  6. Avoid dropping your knife onto a hard surface such as concrete or tile floors.
  7. Sharpen your knife with an oil or water stone and hone with a strop.

The handle of your knife is made from naturally dense wood. The wood is finished with boiled linseed oil and a wax-based polishing compound. Do not subject the handle to excessive heat, direct flame, acidic or caustic solutions, or long-term submersion in liquid.
