Knife user safety manual

  1.  Use knife only as a cutting tool. Do not use it as a chisel or screwdriver,   since the angle of sharpening of the cutting edge is 15-20 degrees. This   can lead to the failure of the product before its natural service life.
  1.  Do not throw a knife, because it is not intended for this purpose. Handle   may crack, or the blade may break.  For this, there are special throwing   products.  Even hitting the target with the blade does not guarantee that   its tip will not break.  In addition, the tip can bend or brake if the knife is   not removed correctly.
  1.  Knife must be always well sharpened. Verify it, since using a blunt knife   is difficult, inconvenient and exhausting.  It is also unsafe, because the   likelihood of accidentally cutting or injuring another person with a blunt   product is higher than with a sharp one (as paradoxical as it sounds at   first glance).
  1.  It is better to sharpen the knife blade slightly than wait until it becomes   dull. It is less labor intensive, saves time and effort.  In addition, if the   blade becomes very dull, sharpening may be necessary using special   tools and a specialist, and therefore become costly in terms of money.
  1.  Do not sharpen blade on an abrasive disc. The high speed of such a   disc heats up the blade by considerable amount, while the rest of the   blade stays at normal temperature.  This creates a destructive   temperature difference and negatively affects the properties of the steel   from which the blade is made.
  1.  Knife must be kept not only constantly sharp, but also clean. In order to   protect it from corrosion, it is necessary to wash it after work, wipe it dry,   but do not put it immediately in the cover, let it lie in the air so that the   remaining moisture evaporates. Then lubricate with technical oil.  If the   handle is dirty, the knife may slip out of your hands.  A greasy, dirty   handle made of wood or birch bark can be easily cleaned with   turpentine.  It is recommended to periodically soak the handle with   linseed oil, etc.
  1.  For folding knives, keeping them clean is one of the main prerequisites   for stable operation, as contamination can prevent this. It needs to be   lubricated periodically with technical oil.  Lubrication has its own   nuances.  An excessive amount of oil or other lubricant in the   mechanism can, on the contrary, clog it.  Grease can adhere to hairs,   dust, dirt and make it difficult to work or even completely block the   folding knife, so that it becomes unusable.
  1.  Do not disassemble the product, either of a conventional design or   folding. Lack of knowledge of the rules of assembly and disassembly   can lead to damage and cancellation of the warranty.  If it becomes   necessary, it is better to contact a specialized company.
  1.  Use a knife with great care. It is a misconception that you can control   working with a sharp object no matter what happens.  Anything can   happen.  You should not check the sharpness of the blade on your own   hand by cutting hairs, as many do, it is extremely dangerous.  When   transferring the knife to another person, you need to feed the handle   forward, holding the blade by the butt.  All the time during which the   product is not in use, it must be in the case.
