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 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.

Summary
-------
Advantages:
1) The sharpest commercial knife you can purchase
2) Will hold its edge much longer than carbon or stainless steel knives
3) Great ergonomics (nice handle and beautiful appearance)

Disadvantages:
1) Brittle blade
2) Can only be sharpened by the manufacturer

Overall:
Buy this set

Detailed information and advice:
--------------------------------
A bit of background information if you are unfamiliar with ceramic knives. There are basically three types of knives you can purchase:

1) High stainless steel knives - Fairly sharp, hold their edge well, somewhat difficult to sharpen. These are the knives that you are most likely to purchase at a store. Prices range from very cheap to very expensive (I own a Wusthof set, so I know how expensive they can get).

2) High carbon steel knives - Very sharp, dull easily, easy to sharpen. These are the cheapest, easiest to sharpen, and lose their edge the fastest. These also tend to be used by professionals (I managed over 80 "knife hands" early in my career and this is all we used - people would dull on average 6 per day).

3) Ceramic knives - Supremely sharp, hold their edge practically forever, impossible to sharpen. Expensive, and prone to breaking if not used properly.

Most people purchase high stainless steel knife sets, and these are adequate for general utility. But it's not the best strategy for a well prepared chef to follow. The best approach is to have multiple knives and use them for specialized purposes.

Here's what you should do:

1) Buy this ceramic set. Use it for everything except boning, prying, and crushing.

Be very, very careful. These are the sharpest knives I have ever dealt with. I have used it for fish, vegetables, boneless meats, and cheeses. You can make cuts as thin as you want, and the consistency of the cut is amazing. This set is a good introduction, and I am so happy with it that I plan on getting some of the other knives over time. The knives cut well and are very easy to clean...what else could you want?

I purchased this set with high expectations, looking for an exceptionally sharp pair of knives to help make cooking a bit easier and more fun. In all I'm only moderately satisfied with these knives.

1) Sharpness: I was expecting the sharpest knives out there. They are indeed sharp, and right on par my regularly sharpened basic knife set. However, when it comes to true tests of sharpness these have let me down a bit. When cutting a tomato for example, I have to saw a bit to get the knife through the fruit. And with the classic "paper test" gently running the knife down a sheet of paper grabs at it before slicing in a half tear uneven fashion. I was happy to have the slightly above average sharpness, if only for its durability and not needing to sharpen as often. Then I purchased a Shun Premiere 8" chef's knife and the difference is night and day. These were supposed to be the sharper knives but the Shun is the one sliding gently through the tomato, whispering through a sheet of paper and nicking off hairs on the sponge when cleaned. I doubt that all of these reviews could be wrong, but I bet that the factory sharpening on these knives was average and I should send them in for a tune-up.

2) Feel: The handle is cheap and light plastic, not at all appropriate for knives that are attempting to be higher end. My hands slip a bit on them and it is hard to get optimal leverage on the knife for cutting tasks. It works just fine, but the balance just doesn't feel completely natural and I often find myself reaching for other knives that are a bit more comfortable.

3) Heft: These are the lightest knives I've ever owned. When I began my search for a new set of kitchen knives I think that I concentrated too much on sharpness.

I bought this set and the chef's knife. All three cut like a dream. I still am a little too cautious of the ceramic blades. And I don't leave them out due to my fear that someone will carelessly use them on my granite counter tops or use them to pry, twist, or in some other way use and destroy them. When I cook and have friends over they will be conversation items as some of my fiends are equally adept in the kitchen. So why the four star rating. The blades are great, but the light weight, plastic molded handles with an obvious mold seam, look and feel cheap. For the price and the blade quality why are the handles pieces of poorly molded/trimmed plastic? Love the blades, but really hate the handles

Wow, these ceramic knives really are different and very useful. I bought this set in July, and to tell the truth I've only used the paring knife, as I learn about where I like to use them. My other Santoku knives are pretty good and I didn't do much prep in the kitchen over the summer.

OK so as they recommend these knives are somewhat restrained to straight cuts, but that is most of the food prep activity anyway. They take special care, and I am worried about what I'm going to do when they need sharpening, I'm so lazy when it come to sending stuff away for service.

While they are sharp though I have found the blade to be PERFECT for tomatoes and other vegetables, tomatoes are a high spot though. Another unexpected use is bread; slicing into a roll with these is nicer and easier than a serrated knife and creates a much nicer cut. Love it!

I have not been so excited about it with raw meat, but I need to experiment here a bit more. The one place I found it really didn't work that well was with cheese, especially the soft cheddar. It has no problem cutting, but the cheese sticks hard to the blade so it's difficult to complete the slice.

I really do like the ceramic knife, and the fact that they work different than the metal blades on some material is a bonus. If you have visitors or people who don't really appreciate kitchen tools, it's best to tell them these are off limits to them.

Happy Slicing!
