Product Description

Size: 7 inch | Style Name: Chef Knife

Kyocera's Limited LTD Cutlery Series, offering a hand-crafted Pakka wood handle with a hand-finished blade, echoing the true traditional style of Japanese cutlery, made in Japan. Inspired by the traditional Japanese craftsmanship, Kyocera developed a knife that reflects Japanese culture and heritage. Hand- crafted by expert artisans in Seki Japan, the unique handle shape is not commonly used due to the fact that it is time consuming to produce. This style handle provides a natural, ergonomic feeling, contoured to the palm and ultimately enhancing the cutting performance. Zirconia 206: Kyocera's proprietary advanced ceramic. This translates to a stronger, denser blade that holds an edge longer than other ceramic knives. A high-performance knife for everyday tasks like chopping herbs, dicing and slicing meats. Perfect for the home cook, this knife will be used daily, quickly becoming a favorite in the kitchen. Ideal for fruits, vegetables and boneless meats. Lifetime Complimentary Sharpening: Kyocera will sharpen your knives back to a factory new edge. 10 for shipping and handling will sharpen as many Kyocera knives as you own. Hand wash with soap & water.

This knife is one incredible piece of cutlery! I've owned many fine kitchen knives, both steel AND ceramic but this piece is a cut above (pun intended). Other than its light weight, you'd swear it was metal. It's not the white "glassy" appearing zirconium oxide that is typical of most ceramic knives. The blade's surface has a ground, blued-steel look. The highly polished cutting edge looks like metal, not glass.
The factory edge would rival a brand new razor blade. My big disappointment here though, is that I discovered, after carefully examination the edge, the fact that whoever, or whatever done the finish sharpening, didn't pay close attention to their work and left the otherwise awesome edge jagged and chipped at the butt end near the handle (see photo). This is inexcusable in a knife of this price made in Japan! Mine's going back. I'll try another one to see if this is just an isolated example.
My only other gripe is with the dinky little plastic sleeve supplied with the knife. At this price, Kyocera could have provided a more substantial protective sheath or cover to protect this fine blade, but I guess you save a penny where you can. Otherwise, an incredible knife!
P.S. I don't know what, or why, Amazon keeps deleting my attached photo here. I have had to re-post this review 3 times now because the attached image keeps "disappearing" for some reason. I'm sure it will disappear again soon after this re-post.

This knife is by far the sharpest I've ever used in the kitchen! They cut very smoothly and precisely if you cut the right way.

The knife is made in Japan, and the ceramics are high in quality. The ceramic knives you may find at the stores (in US) usually have white ceramic blades, if made by Kyocera or other companies. The LTD series are their higher end ceramics and are more durable than the white ones. I haven't been able to locate one of these in stores in the US, but glad I found them on Amazon.

I have been in need of a chef knife for a long while and was debating whether to get ceramic or steel blade. I went for these ceramic blade because:
1. Kyocera offer lifetime sharpening. You have to pay shipping, but if you have multiple Kyocera blades to sharpen, you can send it all at the same time in one shipment!
2. The Pakka wood handle is finely crafted and it's unique. I know it's just a knife, but I also like to have a unique style. It's also very light when held. Surface is smooth, but not slippery.
3. The blade is really sharper than any knives I've used.

Some word of caution about ceramic knives
- Always handwash only in warm water
- These are ceramics, and yes they can be chipped if you use it to chop very hard things.
- Don't use the pointed end during chopping as it can chip the knife.

Ceramic knives do require extra care, but they will last and will be sharper than any (in my experience) steel blades if used carefully.

I disagree with other reviewers. My experience with this knife is that the sharpness is only so-so. Not as sharp as other traditional metal knives I have. For example when cutting a tomato I have to exert considerable pressure and saw back-and-forth several times to get it started. I have metal knives that cut a tomato with less pressure and only one swipe. This knife is good in that being so thin, once the initial cut is made, as in cutting a melon, it goes through smoothly and nicely. So, an okay knife, but not worth $179 and a questionable purchase when I can get metal knives for the same money that I can sharpen myself without mailing back to the manufacturer!

This is a very beautiful knife. The handle and blade are very very nice. This is my first ceramic knife, I compared it with my steel knife which is just sharpened. It's very sharp, it's about the same sharp as my steel knife. Ceramic knife holds its sharpness a lot longer than steel knife, so if you never/rarely sharpen your steel knife, you may find this ceramic very sharp. But for me, I hone/sharpen my knife regularly so I don't feel much difference between steel knife and ceramic knife. But for the light weight and beautiful appearance, I give it 5 stars.

My new "go to" knife sits proudly beside a well used cutting board. Seriously, utility knives don't get any sharper, more comfortable and easy to clean than this! I purchased a Kyocera ceramic sharpener now that I have two of their ceramic knives.

Previously had plastic handled Kyocera. This is so much better and weighted perfectly. We can't wait to buy 2 more knifes of the LTD series.
Kyocera will sharpen them for life. Any chips or dulling will be ground away to create a new blade. Highly recommend.

Style Name: Santoku KnifeSize: 5.5 Inch Verified Purchase
Super sharp; by far my favorite knife for dicing veggies. Blade is too short for cutting large vegetables in half (e.g. head lettuce, cabbage, squash, etc.), but for typical salad and stir-fry veggies, this is the greatest tool. The knife is very light and feels easy in the hand. Just don't get your fingers in the way; the sharpness of this knife would show no mercy. Takes a little getting used to; the blade is thin, so it's slightly flexible. Not good for scraping food from a cutting board into a bowl or pan.
