First, cut bones and meat should be used separately for different purposes. Knives are not suitable for cutting or cutting hard objects such as metal and wood.
Second, when cutting bones, it is advisable to use the heel of the blade to contact the bones. At the same time, choose the obtuse angle of the blade to cut the bone and drop the knife vertically. If the bone bites the knife edge, it is not advisable to shake it from side to side to try to pull out the knife edge. The correct method is to lift the bone and the knife together and chop again until the bone breaks. Otherwise, it will cause the blade edge to break steel into an arc-shaped gap, which is improper use and is not covered by the warranty.
Third, after each use, the knives should be washed, wiped dry, smeared with cooked cooking oil, and placed in a ventilated, dry place, away from water and gas stoves to prevent rust.
