About its blade

If you notice some special "speckles" on the top layer of your ZK02 blade, please rest assured, these are not residual stains. The KATSU ZK02 blade is crafted from 17-layer ZDP-189 super steel and meticulously hand-finished by seasoned craftsmen. These "speckles" are a characteristic feature resulting from the hand-finishing process of this material.

If you are unfamiliar with this material and craftsmanship, please visit this post "The Artistry Behind KATSU ZK02 Blades" or reach out to us via email for further information.

Tips for Caring Folding Knives
  • Keep your knife dry; that means the entire knife, not just the blade.
  • Keep your knife clean, particularly moving parts and locking devices.
  • Keep your knife oiled; especially pivot points and the blade. Oil at least twice a year.
  • Keep your knife sharp; a sharp blade is safer than a dull one.
  • Again, store your knife in a dry place.
Tips for Caring Kitchen Knives
  • Always use an appropriate cutting board in the kitchen to get the most out of the sharpness of your knives.
  • Cleaning knives after each use will keep them in the best condition and promote food safety.
  • Knives require a safe dry storage place, and a knife block is perfect for storing knives.
