Product Safety Information

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.

Safety Note:

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.

    Culinary Glossary

    What is a bolster?

    It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.

    The bolster acts as a guard providing safety, balance, sturdiness, and comfort.

    Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably poorer in quality compared to a “one piece fully forged” knife.
