That the high quality Güde chef's knives gives pleasure to you for a long time, the Güde chef's knives should be cleaned like they have been manufactured: by hand.
The damascene knives are not stainless and may not be cleaned in the dishwasher. Cleaning of the damascene knife should be by hand and the blade should be lubricated afterwards with an acid-free oil.
Kitchen knives should allways be quickly and easily at hand. For a domestic use of the knives we recommend to keep them in a knife block which should be worked solidely and stable and be suitable in his materiality with the knives. If there is not enough space to place a knife block, a magnetic bar would be a great alternative. To avoid damages of the blades or handles, never leave knives loosely but protect it with a blade guard.
