Lifetime Guarantee

American Made Cutlery will replace any product manufactured by our company returned to us due to defects in material or workmanship.

Cutlery Care

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the recommended to prevent microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge.

Hand washing also eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher’s high temperatures and abrasive detergents and helps protect your knives from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of their finish.
