The Kyocera Difference: Zirconia Z206
Zirconia Z206 is Kyocera's proprietary advanced ceramic formula made exclusively in Japan. No one else can use or claim to use our material. The advanced ceramic material has very dense sub-micron particles, which leave minimal voids. This translates into a stronger, denser blade that holds an edge longer than other ceramic knives - period! The blade on a Kyocera Advanced Ceramic knife means minimal resistance as you slice. Clean, precise, less-intrusive cuts, requiring less pressure is what makes the Kyocera ceramic knife so unique.
Sharp; Pure; Lightweight; Easy Maintenance
Kyocera ceramic cutlery is typically half the weight of equivalent steel knives, which require a full tang to achieve proper balance. Since the ceramic blade is so light, no artificial weight is added to the handle. This creates an extremely well-balanced, lightweight tool that becomes a comfortable extension of the hand, reducing fatigue during long repetitive cutting tasks. If you don’t have a Kyocera ceramic knife sharpener at home, you have the option of utilizing our complimentary sharpening service. When your Kyocera ceramic knives eventually do need sharpening, you can mail them to our sharpening center in Costa Mesa, CA only paying nominal shipping & handling fee. The knives are professionally sharpened on a diamond wheel and promptly returned with a factory-new edge. This service is fast, easy and popular with customers.
The knife cuts a few things surprisingly well: bread or apples, for example. With some other things it’s less competent: like eggs or cheese, probably because of high friction. With a few things I find it ineffective, such as celery, carrots, or onions - and that probably links to its lack of weight. It’s a good size, but it seems as light as a piece of throwaway plastic, and chopping rhythmically isn’t in the cards. The manufacturer requires straight cuts against soft surfaces (wood or plastic cutting boards).
Add that the knife is breakable, whether by torque or impact, and that for sharpening it needs shipment to a service center. The blade is white and easily stained. I use my ceramic knife every day, happily enough, for what it can do - but given its numerous limitations, I’m not able to see this design as a "revolution". A lot depends on how long it actually stays sharp, but when it fails, I doubt I’ll want to replace it.
I know the ceramic can be fragile, as noted by other reviewers, but honestly I'm hard-pressed to think of how they could possibly be using these knives to result in such breakage; I have definitely used mine for things the company doesn't recommend, such as cutting butternut squash and other pretty hard veggies and fruits (I'm vegetarian/vegan so I haven't cut bones or anything), and I've dropped it in my sink a number of times. I have never had a single breakage, or even any chipping from any of my knives.
I am beyond impressed and I recommend this knife – and the company – wholeheartedly.
But guess what - she dropped the knife in the sink and took a 1/4" chip on the blade edge right in the middle. The good news is the knife still works just fine.
The kyocera blades seem to be much higher quality than the no-name competition.
If I were to do it again, I'd probably get her high-quality metal knife and a sharpener. I have a steel Shun chef knife that is 95% as sharp as this when sharpened and it won't break if it gets dropped. If you're not clumsy though and you're very careful, this knife is amazing.
