Chicago Cutlery® Use & Care

Knife Care

For best results, hand-wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately. Soaking wood-handled knives in water can remove the natural oils from the handles. Dishwashing may cause nicks on the blade edges. Additionally, the heat and detergent may have a corrosive effect on the knives.

Sharpening

Sharpeners are not for use on scalloped or serrated edges. For optimum performance, knives should be sharpened after every couple of uses. Use a scouring powder to clean and remove metal particles from your sharpening steel. After cleaning the steel, rinse with water, dry it thoroughly and store in a dry place.

Sharpening Steel

  • Hold sharpening steel point down on flat stable surface such as a table or cutting board.
  • Angle knife blade approximately 15 degrees from the sharpening steel. Imagine the knife blade is at approximately 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock.
  • Pull the knife down and across the sharpening steel in a slight arc, pulling the knife handle toward you.
  • Repeat on the other side of the steel.
  • Repeat these steps 3-5 times, alternating the right and left side of the cutting edge.
  • MagnaSharp® in Block sharpener
  • Insert your fine edged knife into the sharpening slot.
  • While applying slight downward pressure on the knife edge, pull the knife out of the slot.
  • Repeat this 3-4 times, and your knife edge will be realigned and sharpened.

MagnaSharp® Mouse Sharpener

It is small enough to store in a drawer or, better yet, the back side is a magnet so you can place it on the refrigerator, your stove, or anywhere close to your cutlery.

  • Open the sharpening area.
  • Insert your fine edged knife into the sharpening slot.
  • While applying slight downward pressure on the knife edge, pull the knife through.
  • Repeat this 3-4 times, and your knife edge will be realigned and sharpened.

Storing

Sharp knives should never be stored loose in a drawer because contact with hard objects can dull the blade and reaching into a knife drawer can be very dangerous. Many Chicago Cutlery® sets are sold with a hardwood block for safe, convenient storage. MagnaStrip™ storage is another way for convenient and safe storage, saving counter space with a magnetic strip.

Safety

  • Use the correct size and type of knife for the job.
  • Cut away from the body when possible.
  • Use knives with a wooden or polyethylene cutting board.
  • Do not use a knife to stab, pull or lift materials.
  • After handling a knife, lay it down in a cleared area with the blade away from the body and a safe distance from the edge of the cutting area.
  • Do not reach blindly for a knife; reach deliberately for the handle.
  • Never try to catch a falling knife.

NOTE: International(exclude Canada)/PO box deliveries are not available.

This seems to be a nice, sturdy product for a great price. For someone who can't break their budget over kitchen knives, this is an impressive set. Not an eyesore on the countertops, either. I would recommend it, especially for newly weds or singles with a passion for homecooking.

I've thought of these for a long time, had pieces of the set, but couldn't pass up $29 for the whole set. A great deal!

I bought this knife set years ago from an outlet store and the quality is excellent for the low price that I paid. The chef's knife is very sturdy and has a good weight to it. The sharpening steel does the job. The other knives work well and retain their sharpness nicely. I wish the paring knife was a bit more flexible. All in all, this is a good set of basic, entry-level knives for the beginning home cook.

Excellent razor sharp knife set. This set is not drop forged, but is very well made and holds a razor edge with just a little sharpening once in a while. I bought this set because it was highly recommended by Consumer Reports Magazine, and I was not dissapointed in its performance. I gave it four stars because it is not drop forged and the balance is not great, but I still highly recommended it.
