Japanese tradition informs every facet of Kyocera kitchenware, from its cutlery patterned after the gardens in Zen monasteries to the opal inlays in the handles of its pocketknives. Founded in Kyoto as a ceramics company, the brand has leveraged its expertise with the material, pioneering the use of ceramic knives that are stronger, sharper, and more lightweight than steel. (The blades also rust-resistant and will not alter the taste of food.) Today, Kyocera has a global reach, and its slicing, peeling, and paring knives have become the secret weapons of the world’s top chefs.
This Japanese company pioneered kitchenware that uses ceramic blades, which are stronger, sharper and more lightweight than steel. Experience the difference with its chef’s and santoku knives, available with ergonomic handles in your choice of pakka wood or plastic. The colorful slicers and peelers also are sharp ideas, as are the Kyotop gift sets that come packaged with a pocketknife.
