Costa Mesa, CA (September 1, 2009) - Kyocera is celebrating its 25 years of manufacturing advanced ceramic kitchen knives, with over 5.3 million knives sold to date. After a quarter century spent continuously enhancing the material and design of ceramic blades, Kyocera has virtually perfected its advanced ceramic knives. Due to the extreme hardness of advanced ceramic materials, the blades maintain their sharp edge much longer than steel blades. Ceramic blades never corrode or transfer metal ions so flavors are not altered and food remains fresh. The ergonomic handles and light weight of the knives reduce fatigue and simplify repetitive food preparation. These unique characteristics have contributed to the growing popularity of Kyocera's ceramic knives in recent years, with sales extending throughout 35 countries in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Kyocera’...

Irvine, CA. April 2005 - Spring's freshest line of cutlery is the KYOTOP Damascus series from Kyocera Advanced Ceramics. Kyocera's premium series features a stunning Damascus-look blade on five popular styles: paring, utility, slicing, Santoku and chef's knives. KYOTOP Damascus replaces the existing KYOTOP line with absolutely no increase in price and, like all Kyocera advanced ceramic products, these knives won't brown foods, won't transfer a metallic taste or smell, and will never rust. Close in hardness to diamond, these advanced ceramic knives feature "HIP" (Hot Isostatic Pressed) blades fired a second time at a higher temperature in a sealed vacuum for greater wear resistance. Durable Pakka wood handles are moisture-resistant and riveted in 3 places. The hand-finished blades are then polished and packed into elegant black presentation boxes. Specialty kitchen retailers are now offering the KYOTOP Damascus line in select stores. The MSRP ranges from: $129.95 for a 3" paring knife to $299.95 for the 6" Chef's knife. About Advanced Ceramics Manufactured in Japan, the KYOTOP Damascus is the newest line of premium cutlery from Kyocera, renowned for ceramic cutlery and accessories with exceptional technical characteristics. To make the blades, ceramic material is ground in...

Irvine, CA. August 24, 2004 - Any cook will tell you: peeling thick melon rinds and tropical fruits can be a hassle. To the rescue: Kyocera's new Wide Peeler. Unlike traditional peelers, this one is made of zirconium oxide, a highly advanced ceramic that is razor-sharp, won't rust and offers an efficient, uniquely angled wide blade. At 3-1/4" inches wide, the Wide Peeler's blade is more than twice as wide as traditional peelers. This special design makes the Wide Peeler ideal for heavy-duty peeling tasks like papaya, melon, jicama and root vegetables. It can also be used for shaving chocolate and hard cheeses and also for shredding cabbage. Lightweight and easy to use, the Kyocera Wide Peeler includes side corers for removing imperfections from fruits and vegetables. Its most unique feature is the single-sided ceramic blade that allows for consistent, even peeling. Ultra-sharp, the Wide Peeler's blade lasts much longer than traditional peelers and because ceramic is chemically inert, it won't alter the taste or smell of food: dishes taste the way they're supposed to. The Kyocera Wide Peeler is angled at 45 degrees so less effort is needed to peel thick-skinned fruits and vegetables. The ergonomically designed resin handle fits comfortably in the hand and features a ha...

Irvine, CA. August 4, 2003 - Kyocera has launched a new, custom-made, 8.25" single-edge sashimi knife. Unlike traditional knives, this sashimi knife is made out of a highly advanced ceramic (zirconium oxide) that is lightweight, will never rust, and will retain its cutting edge 10 times longer than any steel blade. The sushi market continues to grow and is up another 25% this year. Given this demand, Kyocera decided to create a sashimi knife with the "ceramic advantage" that our customers have come to enjoy in our other cutlery lines. In addition to its superior function, Sushi Chefs will also discover the highly polished precision blade to be a beautiful work of art. World-renowned Chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa shares his experience, "I was pleasantly surprised when I first used this sashimi knife, it really slices raw fish well. It also fits comfortably in my hand and looks cool!" Nationally acclaimed Chef Ming Tsai also shares that "The beauty of this knife is only surpassed by its unparalleled performance. And considering it will stay sharper than any other sashimi knife out there proves that beauty may be more than just skin deep." Hand-crafted in Japan, each knife is sintered at extreme temperatures in a sealed vacuum for over 24 hours at 20,000 tons of pressure. This ...
