FAQ: Is it ok to clean my hunting knife in a dishwasher?

28th Jul 2015


Knifemakers cringe when someone asks this question.

Think about it -- your home dishwasher uses heat, pressure and semi-caustic chemicals to take the food off of your dishes -- none of that can be good for your hunting knife (or any knife). Just imagine all of those food-chunks and other debris pressure-washing your fine blade.

Dishwashers ruin knives -- end of story. Don't do it.
