    Can I put it in the dishwasher? 

    No, never put a high end knife in a dishwasher. While it is not likely to do any harm if it happens once or twice, repeated exposure to harsh chemicals and temperature cycles will degrade the performance of your knife and void the warranty. Plus, the proprietary mirror cladding process we use to finish our knives makes them super easy to clean with mild soap.
