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.
