The unrelenting strength and density of advanced Zirconium Oxide ceramic allows edge grinding (sharpening) to a microscopic precision that must be performed using diamond abrasives. This hardness translates into a rock-like edge that will not roll like a steel edge. Edge retention is the most significant benefit of using ceramic blades, which will hold their edges up to ten times longer than conventional high carbon stainless and non-stainless steels. Packaged in an acetate box, a great tool for any chef.
Unrelenting Sharpness: razor-sharp blade stays sharper longer. Kyocera advanced ceramic blades offer superior edge retention, holding their edge at least 10 times longer than other professional cutlery, including high carbon steel.
Unparalleled Purity: Will never brown foods. No metallic ions to transfer – won’t alter the taste, smell or appearance of food. Will never rust.
Ultra Lightweight: Perfectly balanced and light, reduces fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks.
