While selecting the right knife is of vital importance, it is equally important for you to know how to handle these knives and maintain them. Most of the kitchen knives set have their box with designated slots. This allows for moisture protection and protects the knife from rusting. Essentially, this means that you should use your knife dry and try to keep it away from moisture. Furthermore, you should avoid exposure to extreme temperatures as this can also result in rusting. Lastly, the handle requires great care as well. Since these knives are full tang, a rusted handle will result in a poor cutting experience and inconsistent movement. 

Although it is claimed that these knives do not need sharpening for years, it is still preferable to sharpen your knife every once in a while. You can sharpen your knife either using a ceramic rod, slowly pulling the blade across the rod with light pressure, or you can use a Japanese water stone. Both would produce similar results however the water stone method is preferred over the ceramic rod as it is more susceptible to blade damage. 

Apart from its beauty and elegant design, there are several reasons for preferring a Damascus knife over any other. Firstly, the process through which the knife is produced makes it extremely strong. Hence the knife has tremendous strength. In addition to this, Damascus steel has no air pockets. As a result, the integrity of the knife is not compromised and the blade has no weak points. Last but not the least, fewer / no impurities. The production is done in such a manner that all impurities are eliminated during the process. This leaves us with a strong, reliable, and performative blade that can last up to years with little to no maintenance. 

In conclusion, a Damascus steel kitchen knife set can bring great value to your kitchen. No matter what knife you choose, you can never go wrong with a Damascus steel knife.
