Slicing knives usually have a longer thinner blade than cook or chefs knives. This allows the blade to neatly slice through the meat to make clean, even cuts without tearing flesh. The ideal cutting motion with the Kyocera 5-inch Slicing knife is a sawing motion. Chopping may be tempting because of the straight edge of the blade, but this could damage the knife.
Kyocera features the HIP (hot isostatic pressed) ceramic blades. These ceramic blades stay sharper 15 times longer than traditional metal blades. The advanced ceramic technology Kyocera uses while making these knives creates a blade that is similar in hardness as a diamond. Although these blades are very strong, they are also lighter than most traditional metal blades. Ceramic blades are lighter making these knives more balanced, which can reduce fatigue with repetitive cutting task.
Ceramic will not alter the taste, smell, or appearance of food. If not properly cared for, metal knives can sometimes rust, and if not cleaned off, that rust can transfer to the food being cut.
Kyocera offers a lifetime warranty on advanced ceramic cutlery and kitchen tools. This warranty guaranties that the product will be free of defects in material and/or craftsmanship. If the product is found to have defects, Kyocera will repair or replace the item.
