What is a Santoku Knife?
The word Santoku has Japanese historical significance meaning 'three virtues'. The Santoku knife wears its name quite proudly, with its marvelous chopping, cutting, dicing and mincing abilities. Kyocera's 5.5-inch Santoku knife has become very popular with today's homemakers. A 'must have' for any home chef.
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.

I never *really* imagined using a knife this sharp. It's what I imagine a hand-crafted Spanish Toledo steel sword or Samurai blade would be like. Except smaller. And lighter. And white.
However, be careful! Because it is both very lightweight and very sharp, the knife handles differently than any knife I've used before. And it is sharp enough to do real damage quite quickly. For instance, I received one of these knives as a gift from a friend who had recently got one for herself. It turns out that we *both* cut our fingers in the first few weeks of using our fancy new knives! In each case, we sliced through a fingernail that with a less-sharp knife might have afforded some protection. (I'm typing now with a bandage on my index finger.) I will be very attentive while using this knife from now on!
But, you know, it is a really nice, sharp knife.
The knife comes with care instructions that emphasize the the brittleness of the blade to lateral forces: don't knck the edge against anything hard, don't smack the flat of the blade to crush garlic. No dishwasher.
The special care is a small price for having such a unique knife in the kitchen!
If you're researching ceramic knives you know that they have special care instructions. Basically, no dishwasher. And it's meant solely for slicing and cutting, so you won't be prying jars open with this. Of course, you shouldn't be prying jars open with knives anyway, professor.
Buy it. Seriously, it's great. It won't get dull for a LONG TIME and when it does you just send it to Kyocera in California and they sharpen it for free. FREE.
A little advice, though. When you get it don't try testing out it's sharpness on your skin.
I have heard it said that the most dangerous knife is a dull knife. The logic behind this is that you need to use more force with a dull knife and there is a greater possibility of the knife slipping and going somewhere unexpected (like into your hand or your leg). If this is true, then this is a really safe knife.
This ceramic knife has good balance, is really light and has a very comfortable handle. It will never rust. If your cutting needs include twisting, prying and chopping, then a ceramic knife is a bad choice. It is very strong for slicing, but any sideways torgue applied to the blade my cause it to chip or break. You definitely don't want to drop this knife because it will most likely be damaged.
I bought the Kyocera paring knife and it is just as outstanding as this larger Santoku knife.
have given away at least 8 as gifts and everyone raves about them, including 2 professional chefs; love the paring knife and peeler, too, but I think I use the adjustable mandoline the most (after the Santoku) great for salads, soups, presentation; took the mandoline to a cooking class and the chef promptly put her old (much more expensive) metal one away.
although the manufacturer warns about using the ceramic blades against bone, I find the ceramic Santoku makes an excellent carving knife, and it debones chicken like a scalpel. LOVE these products
keep in mind, this is CERAMIC, so it does break if you drop or torque it; have had my knife about 6 years & have never sharpened it-- still cuts like a razor
