Never run your knives threw the dishwasher, the alkaline in the dish washing detergent dulls the blade.
Dull blades will cut you by accident more frequently than a sharp one will.
Always use a knife cleaning brush or cutlery brush to clean your sharp utensils and knives, (not a cloth) then you will not be in danger of being cut so easily.
The brush covers and cleans the blade, keeping your hands safer.
NEVER PUT YOUR KNIFE IN A SINK WITH OTHER DISHES OR WHERE YOU WILL GET A SHARP SURPRISE...... *CLEANING-Hold the knife by the handle down into the sink with water running, put a dab of soap on the brush, use the brush to clean the knife blade, rinse with clear water and put in a safe place to dry.
