KEEP IT CLEAN AND LUBED...

Stainless Steel is not stain proof and a will stain if not properly maintained. Knives made of high carbon steel are even more susceptible to rust and corrosion. Always keep your knife clean and lubricated to shield it from rust and corrosion. If you use your knife to cut or prepare your food, you should make sure to use a food safe lubricant (FrogLube for example) so that you do not ingest harmful chemicals.
