Product Description

Size: 8.25-Inch

Kyocera’s premium cutlery line features a stunning Damascus-like pattern on the hand-finished blades. Close in hardness to diamond, these advanced ceramic knives feature the “HIP” (Hot Isostatic Pressed) blades, fired a second time at a higher temperature and pressure for greater density. As a result, the HIP blade offers increased wear-resistance. Moisture-resistant, the 3-riveted handles are made from durable Pakka wood. The hand-finished blades are then polished and packed into elegant black presentation boxes. All Kyocera blades will stay sharp up to 15 times longer than metal-based knives. Contamination free and chemically inert, the blades will never rust or brown food. Ligtweight and perfectly balanced, Kyocera knives are ideal for everyday slicing of boneless meats, fruits and vegetables. Lifetime Complimentary Sharpening: Kyocera will sharpen your knives back to a factory new edge. $10 for shipping and handling will sharpen as many Kyocera knives as you own. Lifetime Warranty: Kyocera advanced ceramic cutlery and kitchen tools are fully warranted to be free of defects in material and/or craftsmanship. If the product is found defective, we will repair or replace it. Zirconia 206: Kyocera’s proprietary advanced ceramic. This translates to a stronger, denser blade that holds an edge longer than other ceramic knives.

3/16/2011....Checking in again to remove a star. After 3 1/2 months, I see that the edge has begun to degrade (micro-chipping) at about the same rate as do the much-less-expensive Kyocera white knives. I will send it in and have it made perfect again but must say I am disappointed. Main reason for the purchase was my response to Kyocera's representation that this most-expensive version of their ceramic knives was more durable than their lesser lines. Quite obviously it is not. From what I've seen, the only remaining motivation to buy it instead of their lesser lines is that it looks really cool -- which means nothing to me. I still really like these knives and I've learned Kyocera's free sharpening service is exemplary. However, I was expecting better durability from this top-of-the-line offering.

Here is previous post from 12/19/2010.......I have three of less expensive Kyocera white-bladed knives. Have sent them in for re-sharpening twice in the last five years and have been very pleased with Kyocera's excellent service. Purchased this one -- which costs about 4x what it's white alternative does -- on a lark to see what the difference might be. Not enough time passed to talk about durability, yet, but I have noticed a a few things.

Like Kyocera's lesser ceramic lines, this is a pure slicer. No prying, scraping, or twisting please. Unlike Kyocera's less expensive lines, the Kyotops still come with points at the tip of the blades whereas they have been eliminated in favor of rounded/sharpened tips at the lower level. The advantage to these knives is two-fold 1) the blade material is extremely hard and the edge lasts much longer than any steel. 2) They are lighter than steel blades and your hand motions are quicker with the lighter weight.

I got this knife about four months ago and have been slowly putting it through it's paces.

The knife has a good balance and when I use it, it feels like a natural extension of my hand.

It is not a very heavy knife but it's edge is definitely first rate. During the last four months I've put it through all of its paces. It moves effortlessly through just about everything I've tried.

For example, I was recently butchering a chicken. The knife glided effortlessly through the meat. I didn't realize it until I started to put the pieces away; it also glided effortlessly through the ends of the chicken bones and made very thin clean slices of the bones as well.

I've also learned that I can't chop with this knife on my flexible cutting boards. The knife is incredibly fast on this surface; the only problem is that it cuts through the boards.

This is definitely the sharpest knife in my drawer and it is the first knife I reach for whenever I have to do any knife work in the kitchen.

"Almost" because I do need a paring knife or a bread knife on occasion. I have a nice set of Henckels knives, but they basically only get used when someone is helping me in the kitchen and I'm already using the Kyocera for something else.

This isn't exactly the same knife as I have, but it occupies the same spot in the Kyocera product lineup (I have the discontinued Ming Tsai Signature Series KC-200), and it is technically very similar: black, hot isostatic pressed tungsten-carbide blade with a wooden handle. Mine just has a slightly different handle shape and lacks the "damascus" appearance.

Anyway, I bought my Kyocera kitchen knife about 7 or 8 years ago, I've used it heavily and as my primary knife ever since then, and I have never had to sharpen it. I should qualify by mentioning that I am careful in how I use it. I don't hack at bones with it, or twist or pry anything, or cut on anything but a wooden cutting board. But with proper care, you should easily get a lifetime of use out of it. It has received a few detectible nicks in the blade, which are too small to see but you can feel if you run your finger nail along the edge. I don't worry about that too much, since that has actually improved its ability to slice tomatoes, and hasn't noticibly degraded performance for any other tasks. Kyocera will sharpen the blade for free if I want to pay to ship the knife to them, but I haven't done it simply because I don't want to part with the knife for the two weeks it would spend in transit, for what would essentially be cosmetic maintenance.

The dyed-black wooden handle has faded slightly from use to a striated brown and grey, which I think looks nice; it gives the knife character.

I own quite a few high quality knives including popular German and Japanese brands. I am always willing to try something new and had been wanting to give ceramic knives a try. One of my sons bought this for me off of my Amazon wish list and I am very happy with it.

I decided to make this video review so that potential buyers could see it in action. It hope that it is helpful to you.

Out of the box you notice the blade on this knife is a little shallow for a conventional grip on the handle. You also notice that good or bad, it is light. It's sharp but so is any other new knife. Overall, it seems OK. Six months later when it's as sharp as the first day it's the first knife you grab for. It is not the ideal knife ergonomically, but it's edge holding ability overcomes those shortcomings in my opinion. I have given two for gifts after owning mine a year.
