Like diamonds and sapphires, the elements of ceramic are formed in nature through thousands of years of crystallization, extreme temperatures and literally tons of pressure. The result is a pure, dense, unrelenting material that is 50% harder than steel, close to diamond in hardness. This elegant series provides a beautiful and durable laminated wood handle along with Kyocera's fine ceramic blade, which combine elegance with technology. The ultra-sharp long life blade holds its edge much longer than steel for months or years without sharpening. Ceramic is stain and rust proof, impervious to the food acids which discolor steel products. Contains no metallic taste or smell and maintains the fresh taste of food. The non-stick ceramic surface makes for easy clean-up. It's light weight and perfectly balanced making it a pleasure to use.
Our ceramic knives are the ultimate cutting tools for everyday slicing of fruits, vegetables and boneless meats. The ergonomic handle provides for a comfortable and highly controlled grip. Simply hand wash or wipe clean with a towel. Use with a wood or plastic cutting board. Our advanced ceramic is a material close in hardness to diamond with a rock-like edge that will not roll like steel blades. The result is a razor sharp blade that retains its original sharpness more than 10 times longer than steel knives. Ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative. Unlike steel knives, ceramic blades will not transfer metal ions to food, nor corrode from acids or oils in fruits and vegetables. Ceramic will never rust. At half the weight of and equivalent steel knife, a ceramic knife becomes a comfortable extention of the hand, reducing fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks.
