Aogami is not rust resistance. This steel gets rust. Please wash, wipe and dry it up well after use. In case rust appears on the edge, remove it by a sharpening stone. In case rust appears on the blade, use cleanser(in case of stainless steel) or scourer(in case of iron steel). (scratch may appear)
This knives are made by craftsmen, there are scratches and dent and so on. Almost Japanese knives are thin blade. Don't twist edge, and don't cut and hit frozen foods or bones, the edge will be chipped or broken.
