Product Description

Kyocera produces the world’s best ceramic knives!

Crafted in Japan, these ceramic blades are preferred by professional chefs and home cooks worldwide. Their non porous surface makes them more hygenic and absolutely perfect for Vegetarians!

As soon as you pick up a Kyocera Ceramic Knife you notice the difference. These incredibly light blades feel perfectly balanced in your palm, while the blade is beautifully ground with razor sharp precision. But it’s when you cut with the knife that the ceramic advantage becomes apparent – giving you a kitchen experience like no other.

You’ll be able to cut slices so thing you can actually see through them! The Kyocera advanced ceramic blades offer superior edge retention, holding their edge 10 times longer than other professional cutlery. That includes high carbon steel.

With about half the weight of your usual kitchen knives, the Kyocera ceramic knives are incredibly comfortable to use – even for lengthy, repetitive cutting tasks. Ergonomically designed and perfectly balanced, these knives will fast become an indispensable tool in your kitchen.

The Ceramic Advantage:

Sharpness: Our ultra-sharp advanced ceramic blade will retain its original sharpness up to 15 times longer than steel blades.

Exceptional Purity: Rust proof, will never brown foods, impervious to acids and oils, no metallic taste or smell. Advanced ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative. 

These blades aren’t just wear resistant – Kyocera advanced ceramic knives are chemically inert. This means they will never affect the look or taste of your food. The smooth, non-porous surface resists germs and is impervious to kitchen acids, oils and salts. This makes clean up easy too, as all you have to do is simply rinse and let dry.

The secret is in Kyocera’s advanced ceramic material. The element of ceramic are formed in nature through crystallisation, extreme temperatures and tons of pressure over thousands of years. The result is a pure, dense, unrelenting material that’s harder than steel. Ground down to microscopic precision and polished to perfection, these knives simply stay sharper, longer.

For slicing everything from soft fruits to thick vegetables and boneless meats, a Kyocera advanced ceramic knife will become your new best friend in the kitchen. Even so, ceramic knives are intended to compliment – not replace – your other cutlery. Use your usual steel knives for carving, prying, boning, cutting frozen fruits and cheeses. But when it comes time to create in the kitchen, your Kyocera ceramic knife will be the one you reach for. If you’re passionate about your cooking, you’ll love this knife.

FAQ

What are ceramic knives made of? These knives are made of an advanced, high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide (also called zirconia). Zirconium oxide is extremely hard, wear resistant, and chemically inert. For the technically minded, zirconium oxide has a hardness of 8.2 mohs (vs. steel at 5-6 mohs and diamond at 10 mohs).

How do I sharpen ceramic knives? You can resharpen your ceramic knife.

Will a ceramic knife break if I drop it? Any knife, whether stainless steel or ceramic, will potentially break at the tip if it’s dropped on a hard surface at a certain angle. Unfortunately, accidental damage can occur.

How can I damage a ceramic knife? Two ways. First, you can chip the edge if you cut into bones. Second, you can break off the tip or snap off the handle if you use it to pry or twist.

Can I put my ceramic knife in the dishwasher? We do not recommend this for several reasons. First, it's dangerous if someone forgets about the knife or reaches in the wrong way. Second, violent motion against other objects, especially hard plates, could chip the objects and/or the knife. Third, dishwashers ruin wood handles. Finally, ceramic knives are very easy to clean with a hand washing or mild bleach solution (blade only).

Where should I store my Kyocera ceramic knife? You can store your Kyocera ceramic knife in a conventional knife block, in an in-drawer tray, or in the package. Raw Blend has an eco-friendly Bamboo FlexiBlock where you can store your knives.

Where are Kyocera knives made? Kyocera advanced ceramic knives are made in Japan.

How should I use my Kyocera ceramic knife? For slicing fruits, vegetables and boneless meats, a Kyocera advanced ceramic knife has no equal. You should still use steel knives for carving, prying, boning, cutting frozen foods, and slicing cheese. Avoid flexing or prying your Kyocera Knives. Always use them on a plastic or wood cutting board and avoid cutting on marble, stone or inappropriate surfaces like plates or kitchen tile. For more information, please see Kyocera's care and use instructions. (pdf/52KB)

Can I use a ceramic sharpening rod on a ceramic knife? No. The ceramic sharpeners are used to sharpen all steel-based knives, including titanium because the same hardness principle applies. Ceramic is harder than all metals, so it is the ideal surface to re-sharpen these softer materials.

How do I say "Kyocera" correctly? The correct pronunciation is "key-O-Sarah," which comes from "Kyoto Ceramics," the original name of the company.
