You experience the difference as soon as you pick up a Kyocera Advanced Ceramics knife. The feel is incredibly light yet perfectly balanced in your palm. The blade is beautifully ground with razor sharp precision. But it's when you actually try the knife that the ceramic advantage becomes real - an experience like no other.
Imagine slices so thin, you can actually see through them. A knife that stays sharper, longer. Kyocera advanced ceramic blades offer superior edge retention, holding their edge up to 15 times longer than other professional cutlery. “Recent tests show that the life of a Kyocera ceramic blade without resharpening is approximately 15 times that of a typical steel blade.” – The Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association (CATRA), an independent testing organization.
Another advantage of ceramic is the purity factor – there are no metal ions. Ceramic knives, slicers or peelers won’t brown foods or transfer a metallic taste or smell, so your creations will always look and taste the way they should – fresh. Since ceramic is impervious to acids, oils and salts, the blades will never rust. You can expect smooth performance from Kyocera’s coffee mills and spice mills with their advanced ceramic grinding mechanisms.
Typically half the weight of traditional cutlery, Kyocera ceramic knives are exceptionally comfortable to use – even for lengthy, repetitive cutting tasks. Ergonomic and perfectly balanced, the knives become an indispensable tool in the kitchen. Since 1984, a Kyocera Advanced Ceramic knife has been the preferred choice for everyday slicing of fruits, vegetables and boneless meats.
