After you wash it you will want to make sure it is very dry. A clothes dryer is your best bet for that.

Be sure to dry it with a bunch of rocks so the dryer drum remains in balance.

Should I use the washing machine instead of a dishwasher too?

Does bleach help?

Use bleach but mix it with mineral oil to keep the handle in good shape.

Hey Frank, I know it's been awhile since you got it but I thought I'd post a follow up question as I just got the same knife on Tuesday. I love it so far (although it doesn't seem to have come as sharp as yours).

Do you have any complaints or comments or tips on its care and/or sharpening? I have just ordered my first set of water stones (Choseras) that I'll be learning on and am more than a bit worried about trashing the knife (I'll abuse my old junkers first). Some of the complaints that I read were about how easily the Damascus gets scratched up/off, so I wanted to see what your experience was like.

Nice Honesuki, too!
