Caring for your Michael Presnell Knife:

  • Don't put your knife in the dishwasher

  • Don't leave your knife soaking in a sink full of water

  • Don't store in a wet sheath

  • Don't use your knife is a lever, hammer, shovel, screwdriver, etc.

  • Don't cut on a glass, stone or steel surface

  • Don't use an abrasive pad when cleaning.

  • DO keep your knife sharp

  • DO use your knife for the purpose it was made for

  • DO remember to clean and oil the handle as well as the blade

  • DO clean your knife with a small amount of dish soap and water

Your knife will develop a patina over time.  I consider this patina to be the memory bank of my knife.  This is completely normal for high carbon steel and will help prevent rust.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS ON THE CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR BLADE.  

IF YOU TAKE CARE OF IT WELL, IT WILL LAST A LIFETIME
