Ceramic knives offer exceptional strength, unparalleled sharpness, and ultra-light weight. 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. This set includes a Santoku knife with a 6" blade and a utility knife with a 4½" blade.
The 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. And, the utility knife is perfect for peeling, paring, and cutting fruits and vegetables, as well as trimming and cutting cuts of meat.
Through technology and innovation Kyocera introduces 'Innovation' -- a new advanced ceramic cutlery series featuring a ceramic blade that will stay sharper two times longer, a soft ergonomically crafted handle for comfort and control, and an upper angled handle-to-blade interface that will make cutting a breeze.
The strength and density of Kyocera’s advanced ceramic allows for precision diamond wheel grinding to a precise sharp edge. The hardness translates into a rock-like edge that will not roll like conventional blades. Edge retention is the most significant benefit of using the advanced ceramic knives as they stay razor-sharp 10 times longer than conventional steel blades, including high carbon steels.
Ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative. Unlike steel blades, ceramic blades will never rust or change from its natural state. It is totally impervious to acids, juices, oils, salts or other elements. As a result, it will never alter the taste, smell or appearance of food. The purity of the ceramic also makes it very easy to clean.
Kyocera ceramic cutlery is typically half the weight of equivalent metal knives, which require a full tang to achieve proper balance. Since the ceramic blade is so light, no artificial weight is added to the handle. This creates an extremely well-balanced, lightweight tool that becomes a comfortable extension of the hand, reducing fatigue during long repetitive cutting tasks.
