The Santoku is the knife of “three virtues” – equally adept at chopping, slicing and mincing. The thin blade and straight edge of the 5.5 inch Ceramic Santoku from Kyocera make it an ideal knife for everyday use in the kitchen. This 5.5 inch Santoku features a molded black handle.
Incredibly light, incomparably sharp – ceramic knives are the perfect addition to anyone’s cutlery collection. Kyocera Advanced Ceramics blades are made of zirconium oxide, a ceramic that’s second in hardness only to diamond. The edge is precision-ground to the most commonly used profiles, and is sharp enough to create paper-thin slices. A Kyocera knife offers superior edge retention – it will hold its edge at least 10 times longer than professional cutlery made from steel. Ceramic won’t stain, rust, roll at the edge, or impart any metallic taste or smell to food. And because a ceramic blade won’t leave iron ions behind, your food will actually stay fresher and maintain its original color, longer after it’s cut. Kyocera knives should be sent to the manufacturer for sharpening.
