This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Knife Care

  • For best results, hand wash your knives with soap and water and dry immediately.
  • Soaking wood-handled knives in water can remove the natural oils from the handles.
  • DO NOT put knives in the dishwasher. Dishwasher use may cause nicks on the blade edges. Additionally, the heat and detergent may have a corrosive effect on the knives and damage the handle.
  • DO NOT cut through bone with knives or use knives to poke, pry or separate frozen foods.
  • DO NOT use knives as screwdrivers or can openers. This is not their intended purpose and can bend or break the blade or edge.

Knife Storage

  • Sharp knives should never be stored loose in a drawer because contact with hard objects can dull the blade. Many CHICAGO CUTLERY sets are sold with a hardwood block for safe, convenient storage.
  • MAGNASTRIP® storage is another way for convenient and safe storage, saving counter space with a magnetic strip.
  • CHICAGO CUTLERY knives purchased individually are available in blade protectors. The blade protectors help keep the knife sharp and provide safe and convenient storage at home.


Sharpeners are not for use on scalloped or serrated edges. For optimum performance, knives should be sharpened after every couple of uses. Use a scouring powder after use to clean and remove metal particles from your sharpening steel. After cleaning the steel, rinse with water, dry it thoroughly and store in a dry place.

Sharpening Steel

  • Hold sharpening steel point down on flat stable surface such as a table or cutting board.
  • Angle knife blade approximately 15 degrees from the sharpening steel. Imagine the knife blade is at approximately 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock.
  • Pull the knife down and across the sharpening steel in a slight arc, pulling the knife handle toward you. Repeat on the other side of the steel.
  • Repeat these steps 3-5 times, alternating the right and left side of the cutting edge.

MAGNASHARP® In-Block Sharpener

  • Insert your fine edged knife into the sharpening slot.
  • While applying slight downward pressure on the knife edge, pull the knife out of the slot.
  • Repeat this 3-4 times, and your knife edge will be realigned and sharpened.

MAGNASHARP® Mouse Sharpener

  • Open the sharpening area.
  • Insert your fine edged knife into the sharpening slot.
  • While applying slight downward pressure on the knife edge, pull the knife through.
  • Repeat this 3-4 times, and your knife edge will be realigned and sharpened.

  • Q:

    Hi I am a huge fan of your cutlery knife sets, I have owned a couple. I bought this set and was very happy until after just a short time (about a month) they started showing rust spots (I wash them by hand), could it be from hard water? I dry them right away after washing them but they still have the rust spots on them.....I really am disappointing as I know your products are normally really well made.

      We are sorry to learn of the condition of your cutlery and any inconvenience you have experienced.

      There may be higher iron deposits in your water which may have had an effect on the blades of your knives and cause this staining to occur.

      Please utilize a metal cleanser such as Bar Keeper's Friend to remove any rusting and staining which may occur. These products will restore the finish to your knives. You can find metal cleansers at your local Walmart, Lowe's, Home Depot, or local hardware store in their cleanser aisles. Bar Keepers Friend is a professional non-abrasive powdered cleanser perfect for cleaning cookpots and materials such as stainless steel, porcelain, fiberglass, glass cooktops, copper, tile, and brass.

      If you have any further questions, please call the World Kitchen Consumer Care Center at 800-999-3436. Representatives are available to take your call 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, EST, Monday through Friday.

      Chicago Cutlery knives can be used in a dishwasher. However, the heat and detergent from a dishwasher can have a corrosive effect on the blades, causing them to rust or stain. Dishwashing can also cause nicks on the blade edges. Per the Use & Care Instructions, it is recommended that you hand wash knives with a soapy cloth or sponge and dry immediately to best prevent rust/corrosion.
