The base material of these knives is Advanced Zirconium Ceramic (Z206). Originally developed to make heat resistant, inert tiles for the Space Shuttle more than 30 years ago, the kitchen knife is one of the applications of this state-of-the-art raw material.
Z206 is a new generation of Zirconium Ceramic with limited flexibility whilst retaining all the fundamental qualities of long edge retention (at least 4 times longer than the highest grade of Steel) without any reaction with the food being cut.
Kyocera Z206 Ceramic can hold a super sharp edge for 3 to 4 years between sharpening with appropriate use; after a quick wipe with a wet cloth, remove all residual smells so you can cut absorbent foods like cheese with no smell transference; and the inert material does not react with food acids so maintains the purity of flavour – noticeable when cutting high sugar, high acid fruits like strawberries and mangoes.
These knives are the ultimate cutting tools and essential in any kitchen. They are perfect for cutting fruit, vegetables and bone-free meat. The ergonomic handle makes this knife comfortable and easy to hold. Different handle colours perfectly match the white ceramic blades.
These knives CANNOT be used for cutting frozen food, bones or ANY hard items like Avocado Stones. Twisting the blade whilst cutting should be avoided not to damage or break the blade.
