We want you to enjoy many years of precision cutting with CCI Superior Culinary Master® knives. Always remember to exercise these safety measures while handling and using knives.
You should always cut away from your body and not towards it.
If you happen to drop the knife, step back, let it fall to the ground; do not try to catch it. Verbally warn others if you think the knife might hit someone.
Never fling or throw a knife.
When transporting a knife, wrap the knife securely inside a secure box or package. DO NOT transport a knife inside a bag, purse or plastic bag as these knives are sharp and will cut through.
Never run with your knife; always carry it with the tip of the blade facing down.
Knives should always be kept a safe distance away from children.
You should maintain the sharpness of your knives. Sharp knives are safer to use than dull ones. This is because they require less pressure to cut.
Knives should only be used for their intended purpose. DO NOT use knives as can openers, screw drivers, box cutters, staple removers, or to chop/cut frozen foods, etc. This can void your warranty and damage your knife. It could also result in personal injury.
Do not test the sharpness of the knife by running your finger along the edge of the blade.
You should only use your knives on a steady, strong, and dry surface such as a cutting board that stays in place.
Store knives safely. We recommend our Knife Blade Guards for better blade protection and safety.
It is best to hand wash knives with the sharp edge of the blade pointed away from your body.
Hand wash knives immediately after use. Less pressure and effort are required to clean the blade before food particles have had a chance to harden on it.
The thin plastic sleeve on the knife blade for shipping is not a knife guard. The shipping sleeve is meant to protect the knife - NOT YOU!
Thank you for being a valued customer.
