Well Crafted beautiful finish

My wife likes to use smaller knives to do most of her cutting in the kitchen, while I like the bigger ones. The knife we had just was doing the job for her. This knife is great. It is extremely sharp and beautiful.

  • What is the best way to clean and maintain my Okingjoy knife?
    Hand wash only. NOT DISHWASHER SAFE. After every use, hand clean with warm soapy water and dry with a towel. Avoid leaving the blades wet and always wipe dry after washing. These blades contain high levels of carbon which can lead to rust spots. However high carbon blades are EXTREMELY sharp. So be careful!

    To clean and maintain your knife, it is best to follow these steps: First, clean the blade with warm water and dish soap. Be sure to rinse and dry the blade well to prevent it from rusting. Then use a sharpening steel to sharpen the blade.

    Next, use a sharpening steel to sharpen the blade. This will maintain the sharpness and ensure that the knife is in good working order.

    If the blade is very dirty or if food has stuck to it, you can use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean it. After cleaning and sharpening the blade, apply a thin layer of oil to the blade and handle.

  • How to sharpen an Okingjoy knife?
    To sharpen a knife, you will need a whetstone or knife sharpener.

    To use a sharpening stone, first soak the stone in water for about 10 minutes.

    Next, lay the knife flat on the stone and tilt the blade so that it forms a 10 to 15-degree angle with the stone.

    Using long, even strokes, move the blade across the stone in a back-and-forth motion, making sure to maintain the angle of the blade.

    After a few strokes, move the blade to the other side of the stone and repeat the process.

    You must sharpen the blade along its entire length and may need to repeat the process several times to achieve the desired sharpness level.
  • What is Damascus steel?
    The origin of the name "Damascus steel" is controversial: two Islamic scholars, Al-Kindi and Al-Biruni (c. 800-873 CE), both wrote about swords and sword steels based on the appearance, the geographical location of where they were produced or forged, or the name of the blacksmith. Both authors also mention the terms "damascene" or "Damascus" when describing the swords to some extent.

    Based on these references, there are three possible sources where the term "Damascus" in the context of steel comes from:

    Al-Kindi refers to swords forged in Damascus in Siberia as "Damascene", but it is important to note that these swords are not described as having a wavy appearance to the surface of the steel. Al-Biruni refers to a blacksmith of swords called Damascus who made crucible steel swords. In Arabic, the word "Damascus" means "watered", and Damascus blades are often described as having a water pattern on their surface.

    The most common explanation is that the steel is named after the capital of Syria, Damascus, the largest of the cities of the ancient Levant. The most common explanation is that the steel is named after the capital of Syria, Damascus, the largest city in the ancient Levant. These may be swords made or sold directly in Damascus, or simply the appearance of the typical patterns, in comparison with damask fabrics, which also bear the name Damascus.
