"The beauty of this knife is this knife is only surpased by its unparalled performance. And considering it will stay sharper than any other sashimi knife out there proves that beauty may be more than just skin deep."  Chef Ming Tsai


  • Unrelenting Sharpness:  The strength and density of advanced ceramic allow grinding to microscopic precision by diamond wheels.  This hardness translates into a rock-like edge that will not roll like steel blades.  Edge retention is the most significant benefit of using blades, which stays 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, salt or other elements.  As a result, it will never alter the taste, smell or appearance of food.
  • Ultra Lightweight: Kyocera ceramic cutlery is typically half the weight of traditional knives.  Because no artificial weight is added, this creates an extremely balanced, lightweight tool that becomes a comfortable extension of the hand, reducing fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks.
  • Easy Maintenance: Ceramic does not absorb any food elements; a quick rinse and wipe with a kitchen towel after use is all that's needed.  When these exceptional knives eventually do need to be resharpened, Kyocera offers complimentary re-sharpening with a nominal shipping & handling fee
