Because they are made of natural woods and deer antler, knife
handles will shrink and expand depending on relative
heat and humidity.
* Do NOT leave knife in water, in a very dry, or hot place
for long periods of time (such as woodstoves and dishwashers).
* Do keep the handle protected by rubbing it occasionally
with linseed oil.
The best way to treat your knife is to use it frequently.
The natural oils in your hand will protect the handle.
Our knife blades are tempered when they are created, so that
they will hold an edge better than most store bought knives.
To keep your knife blade sharp, we recommend sharpening it
before or after each use. A diamond steel or any sharpening
stone will work.
Sharpening stones and steels can be found at:
