SHARPENING AND MAINTENANCE:
Sharpen normally with whetstones or diamond sharpeners (recommended). "Pull through"-style sharpeners are not recommended. Sharpening angle is 14° (28° overall). Using specialized cleaners, oils, or any other chemical treatments (e.g. rust prohibitors) to the blade is unnecessary and not recommended. Use of knife-specific lubes for the pivot is recommended.
WARNING: Knife is SHARP and potentially dangerous. Always use with caution and only for intended purposes.
For any repairs or maintenance above sharpening and lubing the pivot, please return to Vargo Customer Service for proper servicing.
