Kyocera Revolution Mini Santoku, 4-inch : Designed with exclusive Kyocera Advanced Ceramics that is second only to diamonds in hardness, the Kyocera Revolution Santoku Knife holds its edge 10 times longer than other professional kitchen knives. Incredibly lightweight and perfectly balanced for precision control, the ultra-sharp Kyocera santoku is an Asian-style multipurpose knife ideal for cubing, slicing and dicing vegetables, meats and fish. Part of the popular Kyocera Revolution series, the ceramic knife is precision ground for a microscopically exact, rock-hard edge. The santoku 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 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.
