Ceramic knives offer exceptional strength, unparalleled sharpness, and ultra-light weight. An Oriental-style santoku knife is just right for sushi and sashimi, slicing mushrooms or anything else that needs to be sliced paper thin, mincing ginger, and scoring meat and fish. The paring knife is the ideal tool for peeling, paring, and cutting fruits and vegetables. And, because ceramic doesn't transfer metal ions to foods, fruits and vegetables won't brown where they've come in contact with the knife blade. The razor sharp blade retains its original sharpness for months or years without sharpening. The light weight of ceramic creates a well-balanced knife that is an extension of your hand, gliding effortlessly through even the most difficult tasks. The resin handle provides a highly controlled grip, and the non-stick ceramic blade surface makes for easy clean-up.
The strength and density of fine ceramic allows grinding to microscopic precision by diamond wheels. This hardness translates into a rock-like edge which retains its edge 10 times longer than conventional steel blades. Contact the manufacturer for re-sharpening service.
