Product Description

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.

Kyocera Revolution Paring and Santoku Knife Set
Packaged 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.

Ming Tsai for Kyocera
"I love these ceramic tools. Perfect for prep tasks and quick meals, they're the ones I always reach for." -- Ming Tsai, Emmy award-winning chef

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.

Complimentary Sharpening Service

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.

These knives took a little getting used to at first. They just have a different "feel" than my high-end steel knives. At first I thought I might cut myself but you get used to them quickly. It's almost spooky how easily they glide through food. You can make tomato slices so thin you can almost see through them! They are almost all I use - I'll wash and re-use my ceramic knives before going to the rack for a steel one. My only problem is my wife and squabble over who gets them when we are cooking together...

I have this set and searched and bought at least 5 different supposed ceramic sharpeners that claimed to sharpen a ceramic blade. My wife just came back from a trip to Japan where she purchased a Kyocera battery powered diamond sharpener. Because of my previous experience, I was very skeptical until I used it and it WORKED!! Not quite as sharp as new but definitely much sharper than anything I had tried before. It also will grind out small chips in the blade (I did it). SO if you buy the ceramic knife , buy the Kyocera Ceramic battery powered sharper and you will be set. I know I hated thinking about having to send the blade back to the factory for sharpening. My brother ordered one and he is happy with it also.

I am very impressed. These knives are sharper out-of-the box than my German steel knives, and have a lighter feel. Don't hesitate to buy these as a gift! The "gift set" presentation is great and the product is high quality. I will be buying more Kyocera knives in the future.

My assistant at the Inn, trained in culinary school in Paris, told me about these ceramic knives. I have a wonderful namebrand set of steel knives that she ribbed me about not being very sharp and that ceramic knives were better. I was curious, so ordered these to find out if they are as sharp and easy to use as she said. And now I can say first hand, that they are! I love cutting tomato slices that thin! Still need my steel knives for boned meat and bread cutting, but so glad that I ordered these for the fruits and veggies that we use so much of at the Inn.

There is only one word for this pair of knives -SEXY! They take the cake, literally. They are packaged nicely and cut so silky it's unreal. I just can't get over how sharp they are... If you buy these, you better get some extra fruits/veggies just to play with because they blow your mind so much that you just wanna play with food. REALLY! I wasted yet another cucumber tonight just mincing and slicing paper thin pieces. They are beautiful. You WILL NOT be dismayed if you are thinking about purchasing this duo. Cool videos on YouTube that tell you the history, so that's a plus. Happy shopping. These knives are just IT!

Take a look at the pics I uploaded!
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!"

Pros:
+ 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.

Cons:
- 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.

I got this today for christmas & it is one of the best presents I have ever gotten. It cuts like nothing I have ever had, is lightweight and so easy to clean (it is ceramic & so doesn't absorb food like metal). The only thing I have any problem with & it is a nothing complaint, is that I have the classic series & it is a white blade, it just doesn't look like a knife to me, but man it cuts better than any "real-looking" knife I have ever used. I have used a lot of knives when I used to work as a cook & I have been cooking for over 20 years now.

A definite 5 star item!

UPDATE: Long term update. I finally chipped the blade today which I think is probably inevitable but it did take me 3 years of regular use. I bought a new set rather than use a chipped blade because I'm afraid I might chip off another piece now that the blade isn't 100% straight I may not notice and could end up with a chip in my food (yikes). It was really my own fault, I dropped a pretty heavy glass bottle on it. Obviously you can't chip a metal blade so that is a drawback of ceramic. However, this blade has remained razor sharp through 3 years of fairly heavy use. For me that's worth the cost even if I have to replace it when I break it (in this case after three years, next time hopefully even longer!)

Original review:
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.
