See larger image. Tips For Use and Maintenance Wash knives immediately after use with a mild soap. Avoid prolonged contact with leftover food. Do not use bleach, soda or detergents containing chlorine or chlorides ions because they rust the steel and may cause it to lose its shine. Avoid rubbing your knives with abrasive products, hard cloths, and metallic or synthetic cleaners. If you use a dishwasher, place your knives in with the blades facing up and in separate containers from the rest of your cutlery to avoid scratching. Avoid leaving your knives submerged in water for long periods of time, especially in hard or salty water that can affect metals. Dry immediately with a soft cloth. Leaving your knives to dry in the dishwasher is not recommended. About Arcos Arcos is a leading Spanish knife manufacturer and one of the oldest knife and cutlery manufacturers in the world. In 1745, Don Juan de Arcos started hand-crafting the first knives and scissors marked with the Arcos brand, and many of these pieces are displayed in the National Museum of Archeology of Madrid. Gregorio Arcos Aroca turned the small hand-crafted workshop into a mass-production factory for professional knives in 1875. And a century later, Gregorio Arcos Villanueva started the international expansion of the company. Today, Arcos is still a family owned business and proud of its remarkable heritage.
