Kyocera's 3" Paring Knife ―it's the expert of the knife family
3-Inch Paring Knife
The paring knife is great for peeling fruits and vegetables; slicing a single garlic clove or shallot; controlled detailed cutting and scoring designs and patterns on surfaces of food. A paring knife picks up where a chef's knife leaves off. It's best for slicing and mincing items that are too small for a larger blade, such as garlic, shallots, or strawberries. Use it for any job that requires precise and delicate work, like removing the ribs from a jalapeño or coring an apple.
The Kyocera Difference: Zirconia Z206
Zirconia Z206 is Kyocera's proprietary advanced ceramic formula made exclusively in Japan. No one else can use or claim to use our material. The advanced ceramic material has very dense sub-micron particles, which leave minimal voids. This translates into a stronger, denser blade that holds an edge longer than other ceramic knives - period! The blade on a Kyocera Advanced Ceramic knife means minimal resistance as you slice. Clean, precise, less-intrusive cuts, requiring less pressure is what makes the Kyocera ceramic knife so unique.
Sharp; Pure; Lightweight; Easy Maintenance
Kyocera ceramic cutlery is typically half the weight of equivalent steel knives, which require a full tang to achieve proper balance. Since the ceramic blade is so light, no artificial weight is added to the handle. This creates an extremely well-balanced, lightweight tool that becomes a comfortable extension of the hand, reducing fatigue during long repetitive cutting tasks. If you don’t have a Kyocera ceramic knife sharpener at home, you have the option of utilizing our complimentary sharpening service. When your Kyocera ceramic knives eventually do need sharpening, you can mail them to our sharpening center in Costa Mesa, CA only paying nominal shipping and handling fee. The knives are professionally sharpened on a diamond wheel and promptly returned with a factory-new edge. This service is fast, easy and popular with customers.

You probably also know the disadvantages of ceramic knives. Unlike steel knives ceramic knives can chip or break so you want to avoid dropping them, tossing them in a sink or kitchen drawer, or arguably even washing them in a dishwasher. (Most ceramic knives come in fitted plastic packing material that can be saved, or you can store them in something like this Kyocera Bamboo 3-Slot Knife Block.) If you actually succeed in dulling a ceramic knife, it will need to be professionally sharpened, though Kyocera has come out with a sharpener for home use: Kyocera Electric Diamond Knife Sharpener for Kyocera Ceramic Knives. Unlike steel knives ceramic knives cannot flex without breaking so there can be no such thing as a ceramic boning knife, and you only want to use ceramic knives to cut boneless meats. Finally, although using a proper cutting board is a good idea with fine steel knives, it is an absolute requirement with ceramic knives; using a ceramic knife to cut something on a plate is an absolute no-no.
So the only remaining question is whether to go cheap: Harbor Freight Tools Ceramic 3 Inch Paring Knife or expensive: Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Red Handle, and due to the fortuitous timing of a couple of good sales I can offer an opinion.
Blade: The Harbor Freight blade is double bevel ground while the Kyocera Revolution blade is chisel ground. Along with Kyocera's claims that its micro-grain ceramic is more dense than its competitors, this should result in a sharper blade, but any difference was too subtle for me to detect. Both knives will be MUCH sharper than any steel knife you are used to, cutting through citrus rinds (and even seeds!) like butter.
Handle: Both the Harbor Freight and Kyocera Revolution have superficially similar ergonomic handles, but I noted a couple of significant differences. In the Harbor Freight the finger guard is part of the handle while in the Kyocera Revolution it is part of the blade. Surprisingly, I found the Kyocera Revolution handle a bit slippery, which in light of the consequences of dropping it is significant. The tackier surface of the Harbor Freight handle provided me with a surer grip.
Color: The Kyocera Revolution paring knife is available in five other handle colors:
Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Black Handle,
Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Blue Handle,
Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Green Handle,
Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Orange Handle,
Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Yellow Handle,
and one other blade color:
Kyocera Revolution Series Ceramic 3 1/7 Inch Paring Knife Black Handle, Black Blade;
the Harbor Freight paring knife is available in any handle color,...
as long as it is black.
Sharpening: If you manage to dull your Kyocera Revolution knife, Kyocera will sharpen it in return for shipping and handling; if you manage to dull your Harbor Freight knife, you are on your own.
Price: This obviously varies but in most cases you can expect to pay between twice as much and four times as much for the Kyocera Revolution paring knife as for the Harbor Freight paring knife.
Note: An inexpensive Kyocera Ceramic Y Peeler in all of the matching handle colors, is also available.
The blades are a bit fragile, certainly not meant for hacking apart joints or field-dressing a moose. They are best when cutting vegetables, or doing fine cutting work at the kitchen counter. If you don't use a cutting board (wood or plastic), you will ruin the knife pretty quickly. So invest in a wooden cutting board, or even a good plastic or silicone board. Again, you may feel that using plastic is, well, "plastic" as we used to say in the 70s as an insult. But plastic must have come a long way since then. We live in an age of LED light bulbs that cost $25 or more, and ceramic knives that are supposed to be sharper than expensive German steel. Hey, who knew?!
My advice is, buy one of these knives, give it a try on some vegetable prep, and see for yourself. If the knife works for you, keep it. Spread the word. But do NOT let the kids play with it, despite its kindergarten color handles and that innocent white blade. It could give a finger a gash that won't be soon forgotten! And keep the knives in a good knife block. They're available right here on Amazon. So what if it has the name of a German knife maker burned onto the front? Fill it up with your knifes, make it look like a grown-up's version of a Crayola box. But be mindful that you must use a cutting board, and you must not underestimate the sharpness of the blade.
One final thought ... as I mentioned above the knife is not for every possible use. It's not a cleaver, it doesn't do well with joints or rock-hard frozen food, and it's not meant to be used in a twisting, sawing sort of way. Maybe your current knives need that kind of cutting to get the job done. The ceramic knives are not the same! They do excellently when prepping vegetables, cutting tomatoes, and so on. Use them without being afraid of "hurting" the knife, but also realize it is better for some cutting tasks than for others. Good luck with your ceramic knife -- the same way someone might have said, "Good luck with that new jet ski" or, "good luck with that new watchdog." Knowing that the knife has specific purposes, and using the knife to accomplish only those purposes, will be a pleasure. Smile and the world smiles with you -- cut your thumb off and you bleed alone." (Hope that's not too gross for Amazon or you, dear reader.)
