Care Instructions

High Carbon Steel and Blue Steel blades are often preferred by finishing professionals because they provide outstanding flex, feel and work ability. However, unlike stainless steel, they will oxidize/rust without proper care between uses. We recommend that the knives be cleaned thoroughly then lightly coated with WD-40 or a similar product prior to storage. The knives should also be stored upright while they are drying, to ensure water doesn't collect near the handle.

As an alternative option, we offer most of the same knife configurations with stainless steel blades for easier care and convenience (but a slightly stiffer feel).

PLEASE NOTE - On all of our carbon steel and blue steel finishing knives, we apply a thin, temporary protective lacquer finish to the blades; this provides protection from any minor oxidization between the factory through to the end user. The lacquer wears off quickly during the first few uses. However, if you would like to lightly sand it off, we suggest using 220 grit or finer sand paper. Be very careful - if you sand too aggressively, you may introduce grooves into the blade edge which can then appear in the mud finish.

Here's Scott Murray of Level5 Tools with a quick overview of how to properly care for your blue steel and carbon steel tool blades.
