Default Wife put my custom knife in the dishwasher

Well we had some friends over on Friday night, and I guess we had too much to drink, because my wife put my custom kitchen knife in the dishwasher. It was someone on TBH, but for the life of me I can't remember who at the moment. Norvell maybe?

The blade is rusted all over and the handle is rough as can be. I hit both with a little 0000 steel wool and then applied some olive oil and let it sit. Is there anything else I need to do?

Ouch! Youíre on the right track. Steel wool and oil can take care of the rust.

Iíd use teak oil on the handle, multiple coats, letting it dry a little on between.

Watch for separation between the blade and handle.

Dishwasher is ultimate hell on a knife.

Sounds like sheís trying to tell you she doesnít want to do dishes.

It worked for me on the laundry when I washed towels with my wifeís bras and panties. Hot water, towel setting and high heat for drying.


Havenít had to laundry since.

I have used olive oil on my custom kitchen knives for at least 5 years. Not a heavy coat mind you, just a couple drops on a paper towel rubbed across the blade after it's been hand washed and dried. Never once has it gone rancid.

It would be less expensive to get a new knife, much less hassle as well.

Thin coat over the blade on a knife that is used not a big deal. Use it on a customer knife that is a wall hanger and it will go rancid. Also not good for the wood.

Honestly olive oil would not be my choice for the blade either on a knife i use either.

"Rancidity, for example, isnít generally a sought after quality in edible products. And yet, when it comes to olive oil in the U.S., people like it. Why? Partly, because rancid olive oil is less bitter6 than the good stuff. But also, likely because itís what many of us know and grew up with. Itís what we think olive oil is supposed to taste like."

I'm open to suggestions for alternatives. Just need to be food safe.

Took her to a fancy dinner tonight. You can spend $150 on a meal and theyíll serve it with knife handles like this. Disgraceful!

For a knife that touches food: mineral oil. It's edible, tasteless, odorless, and it doesn't go rancid. It's also commonly used on cutting boards, salad bowls, and wooden knife handles as it prevents water absorption, so it'll keep wood from cracking. Just don't go drinking it straight our you'll have to visit the bathroom pretty shortly.

For a knife that doesn't touch food: anything with the label "oil" on it at the hardware / automotive store will work.
