Kyocera knives are the cutting edge of culinary technology. Kyocera is the leading world producer of ceramic knives. Kyocera ceramic knives are unique because they can go months without sharpening and still retain their edge. How do they do it? Kyocera knives are made of zirconium oxide, aluminum oxide, and other advanced ceramics, which create knives that are both elegant and durable.
Kyocera ceramic knives are great to have in the kitchen because of their superior edge retention and wear resistance. They are also ideal for those who prefer to work with chemically inert, non-magnetic, non-conductive, or non-contaminating materials. Also, a forged metal blade is soft and susceptible to chemical corrosion. Over time its edge will roll and pit; but Kyocera's zirconium oxide blade resists this wear and holds its edge for months to years without sharpening.
