Kyocera Revolution Utility Knife, 4.5-inch

Kyocera Revolution Utility Knife, 4.5-inch : The Kyocera Revolution Utility Knife is engineered with exclusive Kyocera Advanced Ceramics that is second only to diamonds in hardness. Lightweight and ultra-sharp, the 4 1/2" utility knife is an all-round favorite for chopping onions, dicing potatoes, mincing herbs and peeling and slicing fruits. Part of the popular Kyocera Revolution series, the ceramic knife retains its edge 10 times longer than other kitchen knives, including high-carbon steel. Precision ground for a microscopically exact, rock-hard edge, the 4 1/2" utility knife's thinner blade edge delivers minimal resistance and requires less pressure when cutting. Kyocera kitchen knives efficiently cut boneless meats, fruits and vegetables so thin you can see through the slices. Typically half the weight of steel knives, the ceramic Kyocera utility knife with ergonomic handle is easy to maneuver and reduces fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks. Stain- and rust-proof, the blade does not absorb acids, oils, salts or food flavors. Kyocera innovative ceramic will not brown foods or transfer a metallic taste. Simply rinse clean and wipe dry. Founded in 1959 in Kyoto, Japan, Kyocera is today's largest manufacturer of premium quality advanced ceramic knives and kitchen products in the world.

How wonderful to have a sharp knive again! Hopefully, I can keep my husband away from it since all of my other knives have been ruined at his hands. Nice weight, nicely designed handle, nice everything!

I really like these knives, they are extremely sharp and are proving to be durable. I think I will get my money's worth and some by the time they dull. I especially like being able to slice thinly without constant sharpening.

This is the best knife ever for dicing celery, carrots, etc.; it goes through them like butter. Because the blade is ceramic, therefore not flexible at all, it is not the best choice for "bendy" things like peeling butternut squash or potatoes, but for straight cuts, it can't be beat. The black blade looks really cool, too.

An unbelievably sharp knife that is a joy to use in the kitchen. If you're using regular stainless steel knives I'd highly recommend buying a ceramic knife and giving it a try. The edge is super sharp and clean up is a snap. As with regular kitchen knives, do not put this fine cutting instrument in the dishwasher. The Kyocera can be sent back to the factory for sharpening and has an excellent warranty.

Kyocera Utility Knife Review, 4.5 inch

Never used a ceramic knife before. And, I am merely a novice in the kitchen. It is by far the sharpest knife I have ever used! One thing that I have noticed is that when slicing vegetables, the cut pieces tend to stick to the side of the knife blade -- much more so that I ever noticed when using a metal knife. Very satisfied with this knife, but have only been using it for a few weeks.

The Kyocera Revolution Utility Knife is extremely sharp but lightweight at the same time. It easily carves its way through tomatoes to kiwi without the slightest effort. It is effortless at making the thinnest slices of all kinds of fruits and vegetables. It peels citrus so well I have to be careful to keep it from going right through the fruit. However, it is easily controlled.
A comfortable, sharp knife!

This knife is so sharp. So easy to slice tomatoes or any vegetables. I have even cut raw potatoes with little effort. Hard fruit like apples are even easy. Meat slices easily. Cleans up like a breeze. Can't say anything bad about it.
