    Cleanliness is Next To....

    Not sure if this has ever been covered, but I was wondering how you knuts clean your knifes just before you store them. A trick I read about was to place the bladee flat against the side of the sink to give it total support. What else do you do and/or use?

    soap and water, sponge, towel. a wipe of camellia oil if the knife is going to be stored for a long time. that's it. i don't know what you mean about placing the blade against a sink for support.

    If you place the blade against the side of the sink with the handle above the rim of the sink the blade can lay flat against the sink. Then you can use some pressure without bending the blade.

    i have never needed to apply much pressure to a knife to clean it. then again, i use almost all carbon knives and they get wiped off constantly during use.

    I do essentially the same thing. Never used the sink trick. I wipe the knives constantly as I go...though I can't seem to stop cutting my towels

    ^ What he said, warm/soapy water, then towel dry.

    Don't really get the sink thing. I never really need to "scrub" my knives, unless I'm trying to remove a patina. I usually wash then with a folded kitchen towel, as SS scrubbies are too abrasive. And where I work green acrylics are more rare than a bigfoot sighting.

    Why would you need to put that much pressure on a blade?

    wipe the knife edge up, with the towel forming a "u" shape at the spine. i quit cutting towels when i started doing that. make sure your thumb doesn't go over the top, when you wipe.

    I guess you don't. Just something I picked up along the way. Keeps the knife very still and secure. Different strokes...

    seems like that method provides lots of opportunities to damage your edge. i like to keep my knives away from metal.
