New generation of high-performance ceramics. The material is 20% more resilient than previous models. The new blade form serves to strengthen these properties. The new generation of HIGH-TECH ceramics is introducing households to a material that actually manages to improve the excellent cutting properties of Kyocera ceramic blades. Ceramic blades do not rust and do not assume the taste or smell of the product being cut. Metal ions cannot be transferred to the product being cut.Goods like toast, tomatoes and sandwiches can be cut neatly. No other material stays sharp for as long as ceramic.A Kyocera ceramic knife weighs only half as much as a steel knife of the same size. This reduces symptoms of fatigue when cutting for long periods. Kyocera blades are primarily made of zirconium, a natural raw material. This is a technically high-performance ceramic that cannot be compared to porcelain or household ceramics. High-performance ceramics are used in many fields, including aerospace, medical engineering, electronics and the automotive industry. High-purity powder, patented technology, and Japanese ceramic engineers' decades of experience make Kyocera advanced ceramic a special high-tech material.It is lighter than steel, very hard, resistant to heat and corrosion, and unsusceptible to acids. Ceramic blades remain sharp for about ten times longer than steel blades. You will come to appreciate all these advantages when using Kyocera ceramic knives on a daily basis.Experience the New Cutting Sensation with a Ceramic Knife.
