How do I sharpen my knives correctly?

To sharpen your knives correctly, it is recommended to use a whetstone. Place the knife at a 20 degree angle on the stone and move the edge back and forth, maintaining constant pressure.

- Repeat the process on both sides of the cutting edge until it is sharp.

- If you are not sure how to do it, ask us, we are happy to help you!

What kind of knife should I buy?

The choice of knife will depend on the use you want to give it.

- If you want it for general kitchen use, we recommend a chef's knife.

- If you need to cut bread, choose a bread knife.

- If you need a knife to cut meat, a steak knife is a good choice.

In our store we have a wide variety of knives of different types and sizes, so do not hesitate to ask us if you need help choosing the right one.

How can I take care of my knives?

To care for your knives, we recommend hand washing them with soap and water and drying them completely before storing.

- Do not leave them soaking and avoid putting them in the dishwasher, as this can damage the edge.

- In addition, it is important to store your knives in a safe and protected place to avoid damage.

What is the difference between a stainless steel knife and a carbon steel knife?

A stainless steel knife is resistant to rust and does not require as much maintenance as a carbon steel knife, although it can be more difficult to sharpen.

- Carbon steel knives, on the other hand, are easier to sharpen and may be sharper, but require more maintenance to prevent rust.

- Ultimately, the choice will depend on your personal preferences and the use you are going to give the knife.

How can I choose the right knife size for me?

The size of the knife you need will depend on your hand and the use you want to give it. If you have a small hand, a smaller knife will be easier to handle.

- If you need a large meat knife, a larger knife will be necessary.

- We recommend that you come to our store to try different sizes and determine which one is best for you.

What is Damascus steel and why is it so valued in knives?

Damascus steel is a steel alloy that is produced by combining different types of steel to create a unique pattern on the knife blade.

- This pattern is not only aesthetically appealing, but can also help reduce friction when cutting, making Damascus steel knives highly valued.

How can I choose the right handle for my knife?

The right handle will depend on your personal preference and how comfortable it is.

- Wooden handles can be warmer and more comfortable in the hand, while plastic or rubber handles can be more durable and waterproof.

- We recommend that you try different types of mangoes to determine which one is best for you.

How do I know if my knife needs to be sharpened?

If your knife doesn't cut as easily as it used to, or if you have to apply more pressure to cut, it probably needs sharpening.

- You can also check the sharpness of the knife by running your finger (very carefully) across the blade.

- If you feel a rough or jagged surface, it probably needs to be sharpened.
