Today I would like to mention a couple of tips for cleaning your sharp knives.
My steak and kitchen knives have wooden handles thus I have to wash them by hand rather than putting them in the dishwasher. Once they go in the sink and are covered with soapy water you can't see them and you don't know where their sharp blades are.
My first tip is just wash them one by one holding onto the handle at all times so you know where the blade is.
If you are like me and do put several in the sink at once, put all the points towards one corner of the sink and the handles towards the opposite corner. Then when you put your hand in the soapy water you know where to reach.
Three or four times a year put a little vegetable oil on a paper towel and rub the oil into the wooden handles to keep them looking nice and lasting longer.
For those of you with knives that can go in the dishwasher, if you lay them on the top rack, again put all the points going in one direction. If you put them in a silverware rack be sure to put them in the rack point down.
