At Hikari Design. We select the finest raw materials to manufacture our products. However, even the highest quality material may deprecate if not properly taken care of. To maintain the pristine look of your Hikari Designs products, follow the recommendations below.

After each use, wash the cutlery in warm water and mild detergent. Avoid using detergents with chlorine or anti-limestone agents.


When hand washing your Hikari Design cutlery, avoid using abrasive cloths or scrubs.

Be sure to wash off any food remains as soon as possible after use.


If washing your cutlery in a dishwasher, make sure that at the end of cycle the flatware pieces are completely dry. Hand dry them with soft cloth, if still wet.

Minimize contact of the flatware with the dishwasher steam. Remove the cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as the cycle has finished and wipe each item with a dry soft cloth, even if the item looks dry.


Take extra care with knife blades. Knife blades are made of 420 steel to give them more cutting power and hardness. This means they are less resistant to oxidation. Make sure they are washed straight after use and well dried before putting them away. They should be kept in a dry place.

In order to maintain the polish darker for longer period of time, you can use a common use moisturizer lotion.
