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 or kitchen tool means minimal resistance as you slice. Clean, precise, less-intrusive cuts, requiring less pressure is what makes all Kyocera ceramic products 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 & 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.

Top customer reviews
Due to the flexible nature of a mandoline made out of plastic, changing the pressure applied to the food will alter the thickness of slices, regardless of the thickness setting. But due to the extreme sharpness of the ceramic blade, very little pressure is actually necessary to properly cut slices. Technically, no downward pressure is necessary (on any mandoline), as it is only the sheering (lateral) force that actually slices food. Pressing down harder is just the natural tendency when any resistance is met, but this can actually make it more difficult to cut. Focus on keeping the pressure lateral rather than vertical and the blade of this mandoline can turn just about any vegetable or fruit into a stack of thin, even slices in very short order.
As many have already said, the included plastic guard/food holder is not particularly useful unless the user is really set on getting those last few slices out of whatever they happen to be cutting. As for working without the guard; this is a common sense call. A mandoline slices whatever you run across it; keep anything that should not be sliced off the face of the mandoline and away from the blade.
Construction and materials other than the actual cutting blade itself (which is excellent and will maintain an edge far longer than any steel edge) are mediocre at best, which is not unexpected for a $20 kitchen gadget.
This was purchased as a set alone with the basic 5.5" santoku, which should be reviewed separately, but in short it is what most reviewers have said it is; an extremely sharp blade that holds it edge better than any steel and will last as long as it is properly maintained and used (no hard surface cutting, no boning, no prying, etc.). While the particular blade received was sharp enough to make effortless thin tomato slices, it did not successfully cut paper like a razor blade or any extremely fine honed blade would. I was expecting a sharper factory edge although the one it came with performs about as well as any quality blade of equal or greater cost.
The adjustable slicer is an improvement over the original fixed blade one (which I also have) except that it cuts in one direction only, since the height adjustment is on one side of the blade only. But that's probably a good thing, otherwise you might be tempted to cut too quickly. You can choose from several thicknesses by rotating an adjustment bar under the slicing deck. There's a good range, from paper thin (o.5mm) to fairly thick (3mm). The slicer only slices; it doesn't have the versatility of a Benriner, which can tak auxiliary blades, so it won't be your only slicer. But what it does it does very well.
Overall, I'm very happy with this set. I did have to get a small in-drawer knife block for it, because the blade is so delicate, but it's worth the bit of extra care.
The knife is good. It is sharp enough to shave hair off my arm. Its very light but solid feeling. Very easy to clean with just soap and water. Make sure you don't put this in a sink with the rest of the dishes it may get broken against plates or cups. Also you might get cut pretty badly if you just brush up against it. I will update this when the blade starts to get dull whenever that may be.
UPDATE. Chipped the slicer blade had it less than 24 hours. Chipped it with the handguard. Hopefully the small very sharp piece is in the plastic and not in my food.
