Product Description

A high-performance knife for everyday tasks

Kyocera's New Premier Elite Series features their finest HIP ceramic blade for superior strength and sharpness. Etched with beauty, the blade is perfectly matched to a magnificent black Pakka wood handle. The premium ceramic blade is Hot Isostatically Pressed (HIP) which provides superior strength and sharpness. The flat sided oval handle design is inspired by the shape of a Koban, an old Japanese gold coin. The handle also features Stainless Steel rivets and bolster. The etched design on the blade is reminiscent of a traditional Japanese zen sand garden (karesansui).


  • Unrelenting Sharpness: The strength and density of Kyocera’s advanced ceramic allows for precision diamond wheel grinding to a precise sharp edge. The hardness translates into a rock-like edge that will not roll like conventional blades. Edge retention is the most significant benefit of using Kyocera advanced ceramic knives as they stay razor-sharp 10 times longer than conventional steel blades, including high carbon steels.
  • Unparalleled Purity: Ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative. Unlike steel blades, ceramic blades will never rust or change from its natural state. It is totally impervious to acids, juices, oils, salts or other elements. As a result, it will never alter the taste, smell or appearance of food. The purity of the ceramic also makes it very easy to clean.
  • Ultra Lightweight: Kyocera ceramic cutlery is typically half the weight of equivalent metal 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.
  • Easy Maintenance: When these exceptional knives eventually do need to be resharpened, Kyocera offers complimentary re-sharpening with a nominal shipping & handling fee.
