Ferrous, (non-stainless steel) knives need to be oiled after use - as ferrous tools are subject to rust and/or oxidation. Included is a small bottle of Kurobara, 100% Pure Tsubaki Japanese Knife Maintenance Camellia Oil (also available on Amazon). Just a few drops after use will help with rust and keep your knife or scissors in heirloom condition. We highly discourage the use of bamboo cutting boards as they tend to damage the apex of the blade, dullling its sharpness over time. Bamboo is 19% harder than traditional maple, oak or teak, which makes it harder on your knives. The small grooves may catch your knife, interrupting a smooth cutting action. Using a hard-wood, end-grain cutting board will help keep the knife sharp for years to come. The Banshu Japanese Grip Scissors shouldn’t be used to cut paper as this will dull the scissor’s blade extremely fast.
