Kyocera Ceramic Knives

I was given a Kyocera ceramic knife several years ago as a Christmas gift.  I was a little wary of the durability and sharpness of a ceramic knife~ boy was I in for a surprise!  They are now all I use and here are a few of the reasons why:

  1. They are amazingly sharp.  I have (literally) a drawer full of supposedly great knives that I have not touched since getting my 1st ceramic knife.  There is just no comparison.  Wether it is cutting a flank steak or a tomato, this is hands down the sharpest knife I have ever used.
  2. The ceramic knife keeps sliced fruit from browning and does not leave a metallic taste of your sliced fruits and veggies.  This is a huge on for me.  I love the fact that you can slice up an apple and it does not brown.  Until getting this knife, I did not even realize that it was the reaction of the metal against the fruit that caused that slight browning to occur so quickly.  I was also very pleasantly surprised by improved taste of fruit when using a ceramic knife.  Metal knives do leave a slight metallic taste on the fruit.  This does not happen with a ceramic knife.
  3. There is now a sharpener available to sharpen your knives at home!  Until recently when the ceramic knife dulled (I had mine for a couple of years before I noticed any dulling), you would send it back to Kyocera and they would sharpen it with a diamond cutter.  This was the only slight pain to me about these knives, which is now resolved thanks to the sharpener that you can use at home.
I cook all the time and these knives (I have 4) make the experience that much more pleasurable.  These are the best knives I have come across and given how exceptionally well they work, how long they last, and even how light they are in the hand, they are well worth the money.

  4. Kyocera knives are quality knives. They last a long time before dulling. They are like these gerber knives which are also great.
