The triumphal procession of the ceramic knives of Kyocera began in Japan: highest cutting quality and taste neutrality of the ceramic knives is indispensable for the dexterity of Japanese cooks; those are characteristics who also elate more and more European consumers.
Ceramic knives of the new generation are even more break-proof
The new generation off ceramic knives is thanks to the nanotechnology, worldwide exclusively used by Kyocera, more break-proof than before. The video above shows a knives test, which would approximate a fall from a hight of 1 meter. Tested Kyocera knives endured over 100'000 charges.
High-Tech ceramic - Fascination of a material
Basic material of the blade made from high-tech ceramic is absolutely pure nanograded zirkonia powder. The powder is pressed whith a pressure of 1500 bar into a form and afterwards sintered by a temperature of 1500° C. Like this the material acquires its unique characteristiques like special hardness, high resistance and biocompatibility. Thanks to the lightly flexible blades the risk of breakage of high-tech ceramic knives is reduced to nearly 0.
In opposition to steel knives, who need to be resharpened after a short time, the Kyocera knives keep their sharpness for years. In case that the high-tech ceramic knife would lose his sharpness after many years, it can be resharpened by an authorised resharpening center in Switzerland with special grinding discs.
