Kyocera Revolution Series
Professional Chef’s Knife
The revolution series is Kyocera’s most popular line of ceramic knives. This series has the black oxide blade which creates a tougher ceramic material than the white ceramic blades. These knives are perfect for performing a wide variety of cutting tasks, such as fine chopping and slicing to dicing. The blade has a deeper profile for much greater knuckle clearance for easier use. It has an ergonomic resin handle that is comfortable and provides precise control which makes it so easy to use.
Kyocera has pioneered advanced ceramic kitchen knives. These knives are impervious to juices, acids, oils and salts, leave no metallic tastes on your food which help maintains freshness of your fruits and vegetables. These knives are made in Japan and should only be hand washed and used on a wooden or plastic cutting board.
Kyocera has a 12 step quality control process. One knife will pass through the hands of over a dozen people on its journey through the manufacturing process. Kyocera has spent over 5 decades in perfecting the art of the best and most durable ceramic available today. This is why some other knife manufacturers want Kyocera to produce their ceramic blades for them.
Kyocera has also added a service for their customers to sharpen their knives when it is needed. You just pay shipping and handling and Kyocera will sharpen as many of your Kyocera knives that you have. Everything is sent to a Southern California address where each knife goes through a 5 step sharpening process. Customers typically get their knives back in 7-10 days usually as sharp or sharper than when they were new. The only other recommended way to sharpen these blades is with a Kyocera electric ceramic knife sharpener. This sharpener has a guide the keep the blade straight and uses a high grade diamond wheel.
According to The Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association (CATRA), an independent testing organization “Recent tests show that the life of a Kyocera ceramic blade without re-sharpening is approximately 15 times that of a typical steel blade. " Advanced Ceramic, or Zirconium Oxide, is extremely dense, achieving a much tighter weave than any metal material, resulting in the finest and sharpest edge possible.
About the only thing you have to be careful about when using a ceramic blade is to not use it as a pry bar or try to cut something very hard. It also goes without saying about dropping it on a hard surface. If used correctly, these ceramic blades can last you a lifetime. All Kyocera ceramic products are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for five years.
