Kyocera Knives and Kyocera Cooking Tools

Kyocera knives are a great addition to anyone's kitchen. If you're looking for cooking tools that will last, Kyocera knives and other Kyocera cooking gadgets are smart purchases for the home cook.

Kyocera knives are made in Japan and are made of high-grade ceramic called zirconium oxide (also known as zirconia).

Let's take a closer look at Kyocera knives and products.

Uses and Tips on Caring for Kyocera Knives

Kyocera ceramic knives are great for cooks at any level of expertise.

Ceramic knives can be used for:

  • Slicing fruit or vegetables
  • Cutting boneless meats
  • Slicing
  • Dicing
  • Mincing
  • Julienne cutting
  • Trimming
  • Seeding
  • Peeling

Black blades are also available.

Remember: Kyocera knives stay sharper longer and they come with a 5-year warranty.

There is also complimentary resharpening. Just send to the manufacturer and have them resharpened.

Tips on Caring for Kyocera Knives

  • Best to wash Kyocera products by hand and not put through the dishwasher as doing so can damage handles - all products are easy clean-up
  • Kyocera knives are not made for cutting frozen meats or foods, boning, carving or slicing cheese
  • Like any knife, the Kyocera blade can be damaged if dropped on its tip or chipped if used for cutting bones

These knives hold their edge longer than steel blades and stay sharp for years between sharpening.

All the Kyocera products are easy to clean and ergonomically designed. They also come in a variety of colors and styles.

      BKC - I had no idea either. I love Japanese knives for cooking anyhow but my daughter and son-in-law wanted one of these for Christmas and in the course of checking them out, I got really interested! Now they are on MY list!! Thanks for stopping by as always.

      I have a cell phone made by Kyocera. Had no idea they made the knives and other kitchen aids. They all look quite good.

      I can say my little old cell phone is virtually indestructible - so I like the brand.

      Thanks a million! Rated up!

      MPG - Thanks so much for coming back - that is too hilarious! I was thinking that as well....peelers could be weapons though if they fell into the right 'hands'!

      A peeler, no I don't think so, I've received about 10 for my kitchen tea and still have some left. I guess the mafia don't consider peelers as weapons. lol

      MPG - I hear you on the too many tools and not enough cupboards!

      That is too funny about the bad luck if you give knives....do Italians frown on giving a peeler?

      Well they certainly look 'pretty' especially the lime green/pink one. I have more kitchen utensils than I have cupboards to put them in so I guess I won't be buying any.

      BTW, I can't buy them as presents either to give to family because Italians believe giving knives brings bad luck. Something to do with the mafia maybe? Still, nice looking hub Audrey.

      Yikes - I have been in many hospitals over Thanksgiving and heard the horror stories (or typed them anyhow) - not what you are supposed to do with these knives! Thanks for the read and nice to see you Winsome!

      Hi Audrey, thanks for the great review of these knives. I was curious and you satisfied my curiosity. I was surprised you left out at the end: "But wait! There's more!"

      I have some wonderful high carbon steel knives from Japan and had the pleasure of joining other overzealous turkey trimmers in the ER one thanksgiving. Hint: Never have a knife in your hand when you grab a still hot burner with your other one. =:)

      Thanks Nell - I hear you though. I always hang onto everything even when I buy new ones! Why? I just might 'need' it some day.....ha ha - my boy Patrick always sighs when he leaves my house though as I've got him loaded up with stuff I've set aside that I haven't used all year. So I guess my holding onto it all helps, eh? Great excuse! Thanks for the read!!

      Hi, I also hadn't heard of them, I certainly need some new ones as I think my knives are so old I could put them in a museum! lol Well, perhaps their not that bad, but you get the point! Great idea, cheers nell

      Darlene - you are too kind! I have so many things to cook with, I need a new kitchen to house them all! I keep praying to win the lottery so I can spread out and have every appliance I own and everything I need right at my fingertips....maybe one of these days. Thanks for the read!

      Audrea - I am tempted to buy a knife - I like the way they look,

      But on the other hand, I could save the money and buy me a cook.

      Disclaimer: But for someone who does cook, these items seem to be the cat's pajamas. And the bee's knees. And the rattle's snakes. (Made that one up for you, m'dear, knowing your affinity for the lil hissers.)

      Thanks, HH for the read. I wouldn't have discovered them except that my daughter put them on their 'wish list'!

      Dallas - Thanks so much for stopping by and for the read.

      I never heard of them. Thanks for 'educating' me and for your interesting hub.

      I hear you, Pamela - I'm hoping if I get 'lucky' I'll get one for Christmas and then I won't have to worry about buying it and adding to the kitchen gadgets I already have! I need a bigger kitchen!!

      Audery, I would like some of them although I don't really thing there is a thing I actually need in my kitchen but the nice variety and quality are very intriguing.

      Thanks for stopping by, Christopher - but maybe these are better than the ones that you have heard of. There is another demo on youtube showing them being dropped onto a tile floor and the Kyocera knives do not shatter when dropped on that surface!

      I think perhaps it is true that with improper use, the blades can be damaged but if you use them properly, they are supposed to be stellar for the home cook.

      Also - they do sell a sharpener at kyocera.com - so that might help with in-between sharpening. The resharpening though is complimentary if you send to the manufacturer.

      Ceramic knives are great as long as you realize they are brittle and will chip and shatter LIKE GLASS with improper use. Also they are ONLY able to be resharpened by the manufacturer when they lose their edge.

      I hear you, Melinda - I tend to think I do not need another cooking tool as long as I live but then somehow I end up buying something along the way.

      Thanks for the 'feel' commentary - I actually discovered these because my daughter and her hubby want some for Christmas and I haven't made it into an actual STORE yet to feel them! I'm starting to think I could use maybe ONE of them....here I go again!

      Yes, I often look at these when I am at the Kitchen shops...but I am very happy with my Chicago Cutlery ones which I have had for 26 years and I really don't cook that much anymore so I just look.

      They look and feel sturdy, and pretty too!

      Thanks!!
