How to Properly Care for Your Microtech Knife

A lot of people are fans of Microtech knives because of their high quality and craftsmanship. If you own a Microtech knife, it is important to know how to properly care for it so that it lasts a long time. Here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to caring for your Microtech knife.



  • Do clean your knife regularly. A dirty knife is not only unsightly, but it can also be dangerous. Bacteria can build up on the blade and handle, which can lead to infection if the knife is used on food. Clean your knife after each use with soap and water. You can also use a mild disinfectant on the blade and handle.
  • Do oil your knife regularly. A dry knife is more likely to rust than a well-oiled one. Oiling your knife will also help keep the blade sharp. Apply a light layer of oil to the blade and handle after each cleaning.
  • Do sharpen your knife regularly. A dull blade is not only less effective, but it can also be dangerous. Sharpen your blade often using a sharpening stone or diamond sharpener.



  • Don’t store your knife in a sheath for too long. The sheath is great for protecting the blade, but if the knife is stored in the sheath for too long, the blade can become dull. Take the knife out of the sheath every few weeks and give it a good cleaning and oiling.
  • Don’t leave your knife in direct sunlight or near a heat source. This can cause damage to the blade and handle over time. Store your knife in a cool, dark place when not in use.
  • Don’t use your knife on hard surfaces like concrete or stone. This can damage or chip the blade. Stick to softer surfaces like wood or cloth when using your knife.
