Use and Care

First Use
Clean the knife with hot, soapy water before the first use.

Sharpening and Honing
Regularly maintenance on Hammer Stahl cutlery allows the knife to make effortless cuts for many years. We recommend honing the knife often to realign the edge and prevent injuries. If sharpening is needed, use a whetstone, knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.

Knife Sharpening Services
With proper care, Hammer Stahl Cutlery will remain sharp for many years. After extended use, you may need to have them factory sharpened. Hammer Stahl does professional sharpening services free of charge, with the exception of shipping and handling fees. International shipments may require more shipping charges. For one to three knives, it is $6 (US Currency). For four or more knives (with a 10 knife maximum), the cost is $10 (US Currency). Please note that it may take three to four weeks for the servicing and return of your cutlery. Hammer Stahl cannot be liable for merchandise damaged in transit by improper packaging.

Cutting Surfaces
The cutting surface can affect the lifetime of Hammer Stahl knives. Always cut on a bamboo, hardwood, or NSF certified polymer cutting board. Avoid hard surfaces such as metal, granite, marble, and glass. Those surfaces can damage the edge of the blade. Never cut through bones with the knife; always use a meat cleaver instead.

After every use, clean the knife with hot water, a mild detergent, and a soft sponge. Rinse and dry thoroughly to prolong the lifetime of the knife. We recommend hand washing Hammer Stahl cutlery every time. Never use cleansers that have a bleach or citrus extract as this can cause damage to the blade. Never soak the knives in water for any period of time.

Proper storage of Hammer Stahl cutlery helps them to stay in pristine shape and it prevents injury. We recommend storing the knives in a knife block, in a drawer with blade guards, or a sheath. Make sure each knife is completely dry before storage.

Lifetime Warranty

Hammer Stahl warrants their cutlery to be free from defects in material and workmanship. Any piece that is found defective will be replaced free of charge. If the knife is destroyed by misuse, neglect, fire, flood, storm, earthquake, commercial application, accident, or altered in any way, if will be replaced for half the current retail purchase price, plus shipping and handling.
