I'm just asking cause I've read a few posts about agbay injuries cause they're so awesome sharp. I bought one of those cleaning tools for it, but seriously isn't soap and a rag needed? I think the cleaning tool is just for excess crumbs in between cuts, but need to know the safe way to clean/sanitize the blade in between uses.

I clean mine as I would any pricey, sharp instrument....carefully with soap and water and air dry. I don't use 409 or whatever because I am sure it leaves a residue that will taste nasty and be a bit toxic when ingested.

scrape with the cleaning tool then wash with soap and water, using the dish cloth from the dull side of the knife. Air dry.

Before I wipe down with a soapy sponge, I spray off as much cake residue as I can with my sink sprayer using very hot water. I let the blade air dry, but do wipe down the feet and other non-sharp parts with a floursack (lint-free) towel.
