If you’ve ever tried to cut a tomato with a blunt knife then you know the importance of owning a good quality knife. A good knife in the kitchen can really make a difference in not only preparation time but also in the final look of the food.
Good quality knifes can cost hundreds of dollars but they are an investment and can easily last a lifetime. Fortunately the Kyocera Ceramic Knife Set is not in this price range but even so at just under $100 it is still comes at a hefty price for many home cooks.
- 3 inch ceramic paring knife
- 5.5 inch ceramic santoku knife
What We Like
- These knives are razor sharp. You will find yourself cutting paper thin slices of tomatoes, cucumbers or whatever else takes your fancy, just for the fun of it.
- Because they are ceramic they will never rust and won’t cause foods to brown which often happens with metal knives.
- The ergonomic design means these knifes are comfortable to use.
- They are made in Japan and the Japanese know how to make good quality knives.
What We Don’t Like
- The price may be a bit much for some but keep in mind that these are an investment that will last a lifetime.
These are the types of knives you will use daily so for the price you are going to get a lot of use out of them. With the razor sharp blade that stays sharp up to 10 times longer than conventional blades this is one knife that you will find a joy to use.

Now this is a novel. These Kyocera knives from Japan are made from ceramic and have a resin handle which gives you an excellent grip.
The knives are lightweight and are perfectly balanced.
The zirconium oxide blade is resistant to chemical corrosion and will hold its edge for months and even years without requiring any sharpening. In fact these knives hold their edge for much longer than steel.
Because Kyocera Knives are made from ceramic the blade is not affected by the food acids that discolor steel blades. So you will find that the blade is stain and rust resistant and the non-stick ceramic surface means that clean up is easy – always a plus.
Kyocera Knives have a five year limited warranty against breakage which does not cover cutting through bones, prying things open or flexing.
However, in one of the reviews I read for this knife, the chap had made use of the Kyocera knife sharpening service and he was very happy with the service and his knife came back as good as new. He also stated that he had chipped the knife by cutting through a chicken backbone so he knew that the fault was his. Still, it is certainly good to know that Kyocera have a sharpening service so that you can keep your knives in tip top condition if the need for sharpening arises.
Everyone who has purchased one of these knives can’t speak highly enough of them, and most say that these knives will cut through just about anything like butter.
And what a great gift idea and talking point.
