Kyocera Kyotop Ceramic 20cm Sashimi Knife (KYOKT200HIPD)The Kyocera KYOTOP vegetable knife, part of the 'Sandgarden' range, features a KARESANSUI inspired blade, the stone garden design of Japan: multiple line patterns drawn in the garden are called 'sand ripples' which symbolize the ocean, waves and the flow of water.
The HIP (Hot Isostatic Processing) manufactured high density blades are created from Zirconium Carbide - these blades are twice as sharp as normal ceramic blades. Standard Zirconium ceramic production involves pressures of up to 300 t/m² - the Kyocera Kyotop knives are sintered at a temperature of 1500°C at a pressure of up to 20,000t/m² resulting in a ceramic blade of unsurpassed hardness and sharpness. The robust blade will hold its edge much longer than steel. Completely stain and rust proof, these blades are impervious to food acids that commonly discolour steel. The ceramic blades will not impart any metallic taste or smell, whilst maintaining the fresh tastes of food. They do not cause browning of fruits or vegetables. Care must be taken with the blade not to cut into hard materials such as bones, as this may damage the blade. Extremely easy to clean. Non-stick ceramic blade. A joy to use, these knives are lightweight and perfectly balanced. The luxurious pakkawood handles are both durable and moisture resistant.
