There are stains on my kitchen knife

The 'spots' in your pan are caused by 'flash'-rust (surface rust). This form of rust is caused by small rusty parts in the surroundings of the product, contact with different steel prodocts or by rust on other products. Tip! Place your knives in each independently dry back in your knife block.

You can easily remove this surface rust yourself with a soft cloth and a cleaning agent especially for steel or stainless steel such as Hagerty Metal Polish of BK Stainless Steel Cleaner. Fly-rust is not covered by our garantuee.

Perhaps unnecessarily: kitchen knives are not suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher. Due to the aggressive effect of dishwashing detergent, both the blade and the handle are affected.

The blade of my knife is broken

The blades of knives can become damaged over time due to being dropped, banged or because they move about in the cutlery drawer. This can result in hairline cracks. The hairline cracks can result in what appears to be a sudden breakage. These breakages cannot be repaired. Such breakages are not covered by the guarantee but are considered normal wear and tear. Guarantee concerning materials, construction and workmanship defects.

In order to ascertain whether one of the aforementioned is the case, we would appreciate a photo of the damaged surface (the narrow part where the piece is missing). In the case of hollow-handled knives (where the knife is not forged out of one piece but is made up of a separate handle and blade), it is possible to fit a new blade on some knife models. The new blades may be slightly different to the old ones.
