How do I clean my Petromax knives properly?
Please observe the following care instructions to maintain the quality
of your knives for a long time to come:

soiled. As a rule, however, cleaning with clear water is sufficient. Always make sure that the handle of your
knife does not come into contact with water. After cleaning, you only need to dry your
For the Bushcraft and Nata knife, it is recommended that you clean it thoroughly before using it for the first time. This should be done both during and afterwards using only water. Please also note that the outdoor knives should not be used for preparing food.

What is the difference between outdoor and chef's knives?
Our two knife types are characterized by their specific area of application. The various chef's knives are ideal for food preparation. In contrast, our two outdoor models are designed for various outdoor woodworking tasks and should not be used for contact with food. Instead, they are ideal for debarking branches, limbing, felling bushes and thinning out shrubs.
Are there accessories for the knives?
In addition to the various cast iron products that take your outdoor cooking adventure to the next level, such as the iconic Petromax Dutch Oven, you will also find the matching camping cutleryhere. You can find more kitchen accessories, such as our durable, weatherproof enamel tablewarehere.
To extend the functionality of the Bushcraft and Nata knives, the set also includes a hard-wearing genuine leather pouch. This pouch not only serves to protect the knife from external influences, but also offers the practical option of carrying it comfortably on your belt. This way, the knife is always ready to hand and can be transported effortlessly.
Can Petromax knives be sharpened?
Petromax Bushcraft and Natamesser are not suitable for resharpening. However, chef's knives without a saw can be resharpened with a sharpening rod
or a ceramic-bonded abrasive (such as water stone or
ceramic sharpening rod).
