To answer these issues, our secure server software encrypts your credit card number using a Digital Certificate. The information travels through a secure socket layer (SSL) "pipeline" so it's transmitted directly from your computer to our secure server.

Yes. All Jean-Patrique Professional Knives and Professional Cookware products are covered by a twenty-five year replacement guarantee, unless otherwise specified, against all manufacturing defects. If during this period, a fault occurs during normal use, please contact Customer Services to arrange for a replacement.
This guarantee does not include deterioration caused by general wear and tear, or damage due to accident, misuse or failure to follow the Care Instructions. Discolouration, scratches, stains and damage from overheating are also not covered by this guarantee.
Yes, please see below for the care instructions:
Remove all labels, wash in hot soapy water, rinse and dry before their first use.
Use knives with a wooden or nylon chopping board, as use on marble and ceramic chopping boards may dull the blade over a period of time.
Jean-Patrique knives are made of 18/8 carbon stainless steel. The addition of carbon into the knives, like most high quality professional knives, will ensure a continued sharp edge. To maintain this sharpness, we recommend the regular use of a professional sharpening steel. Before sharpening, wet the knife with oil first for greater friction. Always wipe carefully after sharpening, as tiny bits of steel may remain on the blade.
