Care of your knife

  1. Remove sap and plant fibres with a tool brush or crean mate (sap eraser) after each use.
  2. Dry the blade carefully using a soft cloth.
  3. Wipe a few drops of camellia oil over the blade before storing.
  4. When required, sharpen your knife using a sharpening stone, following the bevelled edge.
  5. Use a dab of linseed oil to bring the hardwood handle back to its original lustre.

Use your knife for cutting plant material and twine, but not for wire or plastic, which may damage the blade.
