 Kyocera Ceramic Knives

You experience the difference as soon as you pick up a Kyocera Ceramic knife. The feel - incredibly light yet perfectly balanced in your palm. The blade - 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 at least 10 times longer than other professional cutlery, including high carbon steel.

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.

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. 

In addition to wear resistance, Kyocera advanced ceramic knives are chemically inert so they never affect the look or taste of your creations. The smooth, polished surface resists germs and is impervious to kitchen acids, oils and salts. Clean up is easy too, simply rinse and let dry.

The secret? Kyocera's advanced ceramic material. The elements of ceramic are formed in nature through thousands of years of crystallization, extreme temperatures and literally tons of pressure. The result is a pure, dense, unrelenting material that is harder than steel. Ground to microscopic prevision and polished to perfection, these knives simply stay sharper, longer.

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.

For slicing fruits, vegetables and boneless meats, a Kyocera advanced ceramic knife will become your best friend. Even so, ceramic knives are intended to complement - not replace - your other cutlery. Use your favourite steel knives for carving, prying, boning, cutting frozen fruits and slicing cheese. But when it comes time to create in the kitchen, your Kyocera ceramic knife will be the one you reach for. If you have a passion for cooking, you will 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 by using our resharpening service. Only Kyocera advanced ceramic knives can be sharpened with this service. We also offer a ceramic knife sharpener for Kyocera knives. It's a great at-home solution to refreshen and resharpen Kyocera blades.

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 so we do offer resharpening services.

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.

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. Even so, ceramic knives are intended to complement -- not replace -- your other cutlery. Use steel knives for carving, prying, boning, cutting frozen foods, and slicing cheese. Avoid flexing or prying. 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 our 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.
