Ideal for your kitchen as well as a great gift, this 2-piece utility set from Kyocera includes a 5-1/2-inch Santoku knife and a Y-shaped peeler with pink handles. Kyocera Advanced Ceramics and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation have partnered together to give those who love to cook an opportunity to support the fight against breast cancer. For each special edition Santoku knife with a pink handle sold, Kyocera will donate five dollars to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, with a guaranteed minimum donation of ten thousand dollars.
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.
The Y Peeler includes a non-stick, rotating ceramic blade that won't brown foods or transfer a metallic taste or smell, and it stays sharper longer than a peeler with a stainless steel blade. It's dishwasher safe.
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).
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.
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.
