Please take care that the blade doesn't become cracked from daily use. Should it become cracked,​ it will cause chipping or breakage regardless of usage time. Should it be broken or deformed,​ do not use.
*Use a knife for its correct purpose. When cutting frozen food,​ tough food with bones etc,​ the blade may chip,​ crack or break,​ so use a special knife to do so.
*The blade edge is very thinly sharpened,​ so do not use like a machete or forcefully move sideways. (The blade may chip.)
*The wood handle picks up moisture easily,​ so wipe off moisture properly. Using for a long time may cause cracking and deformation so exchange as soon as possible.
