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.

NOTHING cuts through veggies and fruit better than this. Even ripe tomatoes can be sliced thinly with ease. I always hand-wash mine, and they hold up extremely well.
I use this knife for everything, really -- thinly slicing grilled skirt steak for fajitas, grilled chicken breast for salad -- so sharp, it tackles any food-related slicing with ease.
Remember, though -- it IS ceramic, meaning it CAN break. You do need to take some care not to drop onto ceramic tile floors.
The vegetable peeler is also great for getting thin slices of peel off easily, without removing much of the flesh (it works especially well on carrots).
I'm seriously considering getting the serrated version of this to use with my home made bread.
— WHAT CAN YOU CUT —
Ceramic knives are best for cutting soft foods. You can slice fruits, vegetables, and boneless meats. Stick to the soft stuff and you'll be fine. They are best used on a plastic or wood cutting board. Avoid cutting on inappropriate surfaces like marble, stone, or glass materials.
— SHARPNESS AND WEAKNESS —
A ceramic knife's strength is also its weakness. It's incredibly sharp and incredibly brittle at the same time. Tomatoes and cucumbers are foods that cut like butter, but if you hit some random bone in your meat you risk dulling your blade.
— SUMMARY —
I don't use these as my main knives but as a complement for whenever I need to finely slice things. I use regular stainless steel or Damascus knives for carving, cutting frozen foods, and slicing cheeses, and I use ceramics for the soft stuff. These are very sharp blades that will remain that way if you treat them well. Recommended.
Update 8/24/13: I just bought another set in white, not because I still don't have use of the pink one, but bc the price was good at $35, had to have one more; like potato chips, you can't have just one. I see the additional choice of colors added since my last review in 2011, the orange one is now least expensive--it's calling my name but I must resist. Even at a $49 price tag, having at least ONE is a must, just do it. Then look for good deals and buy yourself an extra one when you can. I also wanted to add, this comes beautifully packaged too--impressive for gifting.
But guess what - she dropped the knife in the sink and took a 1/4" chip on the blade edge right in the middle. The good news is the knife still works just fine.
The kyocera blades seem to be much higher quality than the no-name competition.
If I were to do it again, I'd probably get her high-quality metal knife and a sharpener. I have a steel Shun chef knife that is 95% as sharp as this when sharpened and it won't break if it gets dropped. If you're not clumsy though and you're very careful, this knife is amazing.
