Maintaining the knife::
Damask steel is a very special, artisan product with a high carbon value. As a result, Damask knives require special care for use and it’s best, when washing the knife, that no detergent is used. It is recommended that the knife be cleaned with water after each use, then once it is dry, it should be coated with a layer of (olive) oil. This is how they retain their natural quality. It's also recommended to not store the knife for long in the sheath, so that the oil stays on the blade.
