Kyocera Premier Elite 5.5" Ceramic Santoku Knife
KYOCERA’S Premier Elite Series features our finest HIP ceramic blade for superior strength and sharpness. Etched with beauty, the blade is perfectly matched to a magnificent black Pakka wood handle. Manufactured in Japan for superior quality.
HIP Ceramic Blade - The premium ceramic blade is Hot Isostatically Pressed (HIP) which provides superior strength and sharpness compared to Kyocera’s traditional white ceramic blade.
“Zen Sand Garden” Pattern - The etched design on the blade is reminiscent of a traditional Japanese zen sand garden (karesansui).
Handle Shape - The flat sided oval handle design is inspired by the shape of a Koban, an old Japanese gold coin. Lightweight and perfectly balanced, Kyocera knives are ideal for everyday slicing of boneless meats, fruits and vegetables.
Features & Benefits:
Unrelenting Sharpness: razor-sharp blade stays sharper longer. Kyocera advanced ceramic blades offer superior edge retention, holding their edge at least 10 times longer than other professional cutlery, including high carbon steel.
Unparalleled Purity: Will never brown foods. No metallic ions to transfer – won’t alter the taste, smell or appearance of food. Will never rust.
Ultra Lightweight: Perfectly balanced and light, reduces fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks.
Zirconia Z206: Kyocera’s proprietary advanced ceramic. This translates to a stronger, denser blade that holds an edge longer than other ceramic knives.
Care & Use:
To remove stubborn discolorations, wash the blade (avoiding the handle) in a mild solution of baking soda and water.
Knife Block: Wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly. To renew finish, periodically rub with mineral oil
