Amazon.com Product Description

Part of the Revolution series, Kyocera's most popular line, this 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. It features an ultra-sharp ceramic blade 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. A comfortable, ergonomic resin handle provides precise control, while its distinctive shape makes it both easy to find and easy to use.

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 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.

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.

Product Description

FK Revolution series is another line of exceptional ceramic knives from Kyocera Advanced Ceramics. Comfortable ergonomic handles provide precise control. Offered in 5 new colors, these sleek, ultra-sharp knives are designed to complement-not compete-with traditional cutlery. The Revolution series is designed for slicing fruits, vegetables and boneless meats. Kyocera ceramic cutlery is typically half the weight of equivalent knives. Perfectly balanced, this lightweight tool becomes a comfortable extension of the hand, reducing fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks. Ceramic does not absorb food elements, allowing just a quick rinse and wipe with a kitchen towel. Hand wash or dry with kitchen towel. This hardness translates into a rock-like edge that will not roll like conventional blades. Advanced ceramic blades stay razor-sharp 10 times longer than conventional steel blades, including high carbon steels. As a result, it will never alter the taste, smell or appearance of food.

Color Name: White
I'm very impressed with the ceramic blade of this Kyocera knife. You can see here on Amazon that Kyocera is making a submarket with this ceramic technology. It really delivers -- it's sharp, light, and seems strong in the up/down direction. I've used a lot of different knives across the price spectrum for a broad range of cooking tasks, and this one slices cleaner, faster, easier than any knife I've ever used.

I never *really* imagined using a knife this sharp. It's what I imagine a hand-crafted Spanish Toledo steel sword or Samurai blade would be like. Except smaller. And lighter. And white.

However, be careful! Because it is both very lightweight and very sharp, the knife handles differently than any knife I've used before. And it is sharp enough to do real damage quite quickly. For instance, I received one of these knives as a gift from a friend who had recently got one for herself. It turns out that we *both* cut our fingers in the first few weeks of using our fancy new knives! In each case, we sliced through a fingernail that with a less-sharp knife might have afforded some protection. (I'm typing now with a bandage on my index finger.) I will be very attentive while using this knife from now on!

But, you know, it is a really nice, sharp knife.

The knife comes with care instructions that emphasize the the brittleness of the blade to lateral forces: don't knck the edge against anything hard, don't smack the flat of the blade to crush garlic. No dishwasher.

The special care is a small price for having such a unique knife in the kitchen!

I received my knife as I was just beginning to make dinner and the timing was perfect. I was immediately struck by how beautiful it was, then I started using it. It's the sharpest knife I have ever used, bar none. Not really much more to say about that, it's just sharp.

If you're researching ceramic knives you know that they have special care instructions. Basically, no dishwasher. And it's meant solely for slicing and cutting, so you won't be prying jars open with this. Of course, you shouldn't be prying jars open with knives anyway, professor.

Buy it. Seriously, it's great. It won't get dull for a LONG TIME and when it does you just send it to Kyocera in California and they sharpen it for free. FREE.

A little advice, though. When you get it don't try testing out it's sharpness on your skin.

I've had a couple of Kyocera ceramic knives and they're great. The extra sharpness makes the knife useful in places where a steel knife isn't great -- slicing large loaves of crisp bread, bagels, bagels, tomatoes are much easier. But I've had both knives crack under use, so you need to adopt your style. Nevertheless, if you want a supersharp knife, these ceramic knives are brilliant.

We love this knife. It is quite expensive and I am not sure I am convinced yet that it is worth the money. It is a bit short at 5.5". For the money it should at least be 7", but still it has an amazing edge and my wife tends to use it as her primary knife. I prefer the 8" furi santoku.

Color Name: White
easy to handle, very versatile; what I love best is that even delicate lettuces and herbs don't oxidize as they would with a metal knife; and if you taste an apple slice, for example, cut with a metal knife vs ceramic, you CAN taste the difference, and just see which one oxidizes first!
have given away at least 8 as gifts and everyone raves about them, including 2 professional chefs; love the paring knife and peeler, too, but I think I use the adjustable mandoline the most (after the Santoku) great for salads, soups, presentation; took the mandoline to a cooking class and the chef promptly put her old (much more expensive) metal one away.
although the manufacturer warns about using the ceramic blades against bone, I find the ceramic Santoku makes an excellent carving knife, and it debones chicken like a scalpel. LOVE these products
keep in mind, this is CERAMIC, so it does break if you drop or torque it; have had my knife about 6 years & have never sharpened it-- still cuts like a razor

I bought this for a friend as a gift. He looks for this knife at my house every time he comes to dinner. He likes to make the salad and this is wonderful for celery, carrots etc. I personally like it for everything and it is the knife I reach for first.

I absolutely adore these Kyocera knives, they are the sharpest things I have ever seen.

I ordered this through Witbecks, and the first one got lost in the mail -- that can always happen. When I contacted Matt Witbeck he responded immediately (that night, from home) and the next day sent me a replacement. I have never had such prompt and unquestioning customer service, and so I want to recommend Witbecks to anyone.

My first cutting task with this knife was slicing a sweet potato. I thought, "No big deal." This felt the same as one of my steel serrated knives, which is geting slightly dull. Then I sliced a carrot and I was amazed. I just slid the knife through the carrot, with very little effort. The slices were so thin they were clinging to the side of the blade. Next up was raw chicken breasts. With just a little pressure, the Kyocera ceramic knife made some really deep cuts in the chicken. This is when I realized I would always have to be alert when using this knife.

I have heard it said that the most dangerous knife is a dull knife. The logic behind this is that you need to use more force with a dull knife and there is a greater possibility of the knife slipping and going somewhere unexpected (like into your hand or your leg). If this is true, then this is a really safe knife.

This ceramic knife has good balance, is really light and has a very comfortable handle. It will never rust. If your cutting needs include twisting, prying and chopping, then a ceramic knife is a bad choice. It is very strong for slicing, but any sideways torgue applied to the blade my cause it to chip or break. You definitely don't want to drop this knife because it will most likely be damaged.

I bought the Kyocera paring knife and it is just as outstanding as this larger Santoku knife.
