Ideal for your kitchen as well as a great gift, this 2-piece knife set includes 5-1/2-inch Santoku and 3-inch paring knives--both with white blades. The 5-1/2-inch Santoku performs a wide variety of cutting tasks, from fine chopping to dicing and paper-thin slicing. The Santoku, a Japanese-style chef's knife, features a broad blade and low tip for less rocking action than a classic European chef's knife. The 3-inch parer is ideal for peeling, cutting, shaping fruits and vegetables. And they come packaged in an in an elegant black presentation box.
Part of the Revolution series, Kyocera's most popular line, these knives feature ultra-sharp ceramic blades as well as a deeper profile for greater knuckle clearance. And unlike steel blades, ceramic blades will never rust or change from its natural state. Comfortable, ergonomic resin handles provide precise control, while their distinctive shape makes it both easy to find and easy to use.
Kyocera has pioneered advanced ceramic kitchen knives, which are impervious to acids, juices, oils and salts, leave no metallic taste or odor, and help maintain the freshness of fruit and vegetables. The razor-sharp blade retains its original sharpness 10 times longer than steel knives. And because the ceramic blade is so light, no artificial weight is added to the handle. This creates an extremely balanced, lightweight tool that reduces fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks.
Kyocera knives are made in Japan, and they should only be washed by hand. Use on a wood or plastic cutting board. All Kyocera ceramic products are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for five years.
Because diamond wheels are required to sharpen ceramic knives, you should only use the Kyocera Electric Ceramic Knife Sharpener for re-sharpening at home. Additionally, Kyocera offers a complimentary re-sharpening service (shipping fee required; see more below).
The Kyocera Advantage
The Sharpest Blade Available
According to The Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association (CATRA), an independent testing organization: "Recent tests show that the life of a Kyocera ceramic blade without resharpening is approximately 15 times that of a typical steel blade." Advanced Ceramic, or Zirconium Oxide, is extremely dense, achieving a much tighter weave than any metal material, resulting in the finest and sharpest edge possible.
The Most Durable and Strongest Blade Available
Manufactured in Japan, a Kyocera knife goes through a 12-step quality-controlled process. Much like a fine cigar, one knife will pass through the hands of over a dozen people from sifting through a rock material to the sintering and pressurizing process that hardens the Zirconium Oxide to the molding, shaping and lasering of the knife. The secret is in the ceramic material, extreme high temperatures and literally tons of pressure; a proprietary process resulting in a superior product. Kyocera has spent over 5 decades perfecting the art of the most durable ceramic available today. It's why other manufacturers want Kyocera either making their ceramic products or they attempt to recreate our products.
The only service of its kind available, Kyocera provides FREE knife sharpening. Customers send their knives (unlimited) to our Southern California address, paying only for shipping & handling, to get their knives professionally sharpened back to a factory edge. Each knife goes through a proprietary 5-step sharpening process on a diamond wheel and diamond belt since diamond is the only material harder than zirconium oxide. Chefs and customers get their knives back in 7-10 days as sharp or sharper than out of the box. (For more information, download and print out this form.) People love this service. Kyocera also has an Electric Ceramic Knife Sharpener available for at-home refreshing of Kyocera ceramic knives.

Top Customer Reviews
I've used all kinds of knives over the years, and I really like these knives. And what's even better, is the fact that when other people try this knife at my house they say "wow this is so easy to cut with!"
+ Cutting edge is sharp and smooth, but not so sharp that you'll cut your eyeballs just by looking at them.
+ Balance feels good.
+ The handle on the large knife is proportionally-bigger than the small knife, and it fits well in my large hands.
+ The white ceramic color makes it easy to tell when you've thoroughly clean it.
- I don't like the white ceramic color of the blade when it is resting on my white counter tops; it makes the knife hard to see, and a possible safety hazard.
- The build quality on the handle seems kinda "meh", but is completely acceptable considering the reasonable price of these knives.
- I wish the small knife had the same-large-handle that comes with the big knife :(
I recommend these knives to anyone!
UPDATE (Aug 28th 2012):
I chipped the end of my knife when I was moving too fast and hit it against my counter top. See the attached picture for a visual.
A definite 5 star item!
I cut up a LOT of fruits and vegetables that I feed into this juicer Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer. So it was really important to me to have a knife that doesn't need to be honed all the time. I wanted something that would start sharp and stay sharp without a lot of maintenance. When I first got the knife I washed it and cut up a pineapple. My first cut was to take off the top and honestly my first words were "holy s***". It slid through the pineapple with almost no pressure at all.
I read almost all the comments before I bought this set. I want to address a few of the more common comments.
First, anyone buying this set needs to understand that material physics go like this, the harder something is the more brittle it is. Ceramic blades are extremely hard and thus must be extremely brittle.Read more ›
