FirstEdge® knives leave the factory razor-sharp. It is important to maintain the sharpness of the blade, as a dull edge requires more force and poses a danger to the user. The frequency and manner of use will determine how frequently the knife will need to be sharpened. Periodic use of an Arkansas Honing Stone will remove burrs and maintain the edge of the blade. Should the blade remain dull after use of a honing stone, professional sharpening is recommended.
MAINTENANCE & CARE
Folding Knives – Remove moisture, dirt, and other impediments from blades, handles, and locking mechanisms after each use. Cycling of the blade open and closed will assist in removing dust and foreign particles. Compressed air may be used to dislodge foreign objects. Periodic application of a light oil, such as WD-40®, Break-Free®, or mineral oil is recommended. For optimal safety, Folding Knives should always be stored in the closed position.
Fixed Blade Knives – Remove moisture, dirt, and other impediments from sheaths after each use. Compressed air may be used to dislodge foreign objects.
