FAQ

 

SHARPENING?

When used daily by a professional, we recommend sharpening every 6-8 months. While not recommended, Chefs have reported using their Aura knife everyday for 2 years without sharpening.

For comparison, a premium ($300-$400USD) Japanese knife will require sharpening monthly when used daily in a professional kitchen.

We recommend getting your knife sharpened by a professional who uses Japanese water-stones. It is not more difficult to sharpen than regular high grade steel. Aura Stainless is a very fine grained, ultra-premium super steel.
