    What not to do, to protect his sleeves:

    • Start by never going in a dishwasher, your knives having a wooden handle. This is the most aggressive thing you will do to your sleeves, and they will remember it. The dishwasher is perfect for washing polypropylene products. But the heat released during washing is much too intense, and the moisture present will be detrimental to the handle. The main risk in doing this is to swell your wood. This will cause a gap between your rivets and the handle. If this happens, it is “almost” already too late.
    • Do not soak your wooden knives in water. The problem is the same as that raised by the use of the dishwasher. Too much water will swell your neck, making your rivets useless.
