Did you know that in a pinch, you can sharpen the Kyocera Revolution 5.5 in. Santoku Knife - White Blade on that unfinished ceramic ring on the bottom of a coffee cup? Most knife sharpeners are ceramic, so a coffee cup really isn't that different. Not that you'll need to, as the ceramic body of this versatile blade resists corrosion and holds an edge longer than metal. The tall blade helps you transfer chopped items off the cutting board, and the light weight poly-resin handle provides excellent balance and durability to this essential kitchen blade.
It's well-known that any history that starts with "humble beginnings" is going to go somewhere great, and the humble beginnings of Kyocera did just that. The spring of 1959 saw a company originally known as Kyoto Ceramics move their 28 employees into a single production facility in Kyoto, Japan. This facility was the first location for a company that specialized in the creation of fine ceramics for use in the home. It wasn't long before this venture became known as Kyocera and began expanding both in the scope of their operations and their physical presence around the globe. Now recognized as a world-wide name in technology, telecommunications, and dozens of other industries, Kyocera operates on every continent, but still maintains the principles that guided those 28 employees over half a century ago.
Even in the beginning, staying at the cutting edge of technology was a priority. Kyocera's proprietary material, Zirconia 206, is just one part of their innovative production process that has helped them corner the market on high-end ceramic blades. Using this material, Kyocera has become an industry leader by providing cutting implements that are 50% harder than steel and second only to diamond in terms of pure hardness. Independent testing has also confirmed that Kyocera ceramic blades can hold their edge at least 10 times longer than other blades. From ceramic components to semiconductors, integrated electronics, cell phones, and back to the kitchen with their collection of high-grade ceramic utensils, Kyocera provides innovation and value to their customers across the globe.
