In the dishwasher, your Wusthof knife may bang against other cutlery or pots and pans and knick the blade. Wipe the knife clean with a wet cloth and dishwashing detergent. Dry immediately. Dry from the back of knife to the blade. No metal is completely stain-free. To prevent slight tarnishing, be sure to remove acidic foods (lemon, mustard, ketchup, etc.) from the blade after use. If blade should show some signs of staining, clean with a non-abrasive metal polish. To prevent irreparable blade damage, it is best to store your knife in a knife block or in-drawer knife tray.
