Damascus Steel Blade Maintenance?
Lubricate Carbon Steel Damascus Blades.
Our Damascus Steel Blades are made of high and low carbon steel, which means they have a relatively low amount of chromium in the steel. Carbon steel Damascus can rust when not cared for properly. Make sure to always clean and dry your blade after using with mineral or coconut oil in order to prevent from catching rust or discolouration. This will keep your knife rust-free and maintain its etched beauty.
Store It Properly To Keep It Rust-Free.
When not in use, It’s important to keep the Damascus Steel knife in a dry interior environment, where it will not be affected by extreme moisture or temperature changes. When out in the field with your knife, make sure that you don’t keep it in a wet environment for long periods of time. Don’t store your knife for long time in a leather sheath - acids and chemicals that are used to tan leather can lead to oxidation over time due to the normal moisture found in the air.
