"No instructions of how to clean or care for knives" star star star star star_border Bought these from a Lakeland store, very pleased so far with knife block, but no instructions in or on box, how to clean knives. I would assume the block is just wipe clean, not sure about the knives if they can be put in the dishwasher or just hand wash would be nice to know, also checked Lakeland online but does not say. Lakeland emailed me the instruction booklet, although I may not have bought them if it said on the box NOT DISHWASHER SAFE, HANDWASH ONLY.
