Kyocera Value Sets
Kyocera Value Sets feature the Kyocera Advanced Ceramic difference. Guaranteed high quality construction providing unrelenting sharpness, strength and precision. Experience the beauty of lightweight comfort, razor-sharp edge retention, excellent durability that is rust proof and easy to clean.
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.

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. Under no circumstance should you ever use it for boning, as you will likely chip the blade (i.e no knife work that requires any prying or side-to-side motion). Hand wash, and don't drop on your tile floor. They will last you forever and you will wonder why you ever used anything else. (I've owned a 5" ceramic utility for almost 10 years and it still hasn't required sharpening).
2) Go to your local restaurant supply store and buy at several 6" high carbon steel boning knives. They are generally very cheap, and very cheap looking. Use these knives for general cutting and boning. Sharpen them frequently (a quick run over a steel after every use is best).
If you follow this strategy you will be amazed at what you can do with the ceramics, and you will also have the best (and cheapest) boning knives to decrease the chance that you'll ever chip one of your ceramics.
Hope this helps anyone who has stumbled onto this backwater Amazon page in their pursuit of the ultimate knife!
Note: these blades are sharp and they stay sharp a long time (like 10x longer than steel knives) but they will occasionally need to be sharpened. And they can't be sharpened like a normal steel knife. I've had mine for four years now and they have finally gotten to the point where I felt they needed to be sharpened. Kyocera does claim free life-time sharpening but it's not really free. You have to pay $10 for the first knife and $5 for each additional one (shipping and handling) and you have to ship it out to them insured at your cost. So it ended up costing me about $25 to get these two knives sharpened. If I were to do it again, I would instead buy (for like $40) the diamond wheel sharpener that Kyocera recommends and just do it myself.
Since arrival, I find myself almost always using these knifes, over either our Henckel paring knives or our Henckel 8" chef's knife. Sharp as the Henckel blades are, somehow these are even sharper, with a micro-serrated edge that makes them my daily choice for slicing tomatoes. These knives also clean even more easily than the Henckels, rarely needing more than a quick wipe under water.
