The exceptional hardness of the blade makes the edge superbly sharp. Normal use is for straight cuts; unlike the less-sharp, softer steel knives, they do not bend.
These chemically inert blades provide a viable alternative for use by people with certain allergies to alloys in metal knives. Great for boaters, and seaside homes, as they do not rust.
Under normal household circumstances, your Kyocera may take 3-5 years or more before it needs sharpening. It won't stain, and it is guaranteed for lifetime. Use the Kyocera Electric Diamond Knife Sharpener to keep your knives sharp. Or use Kyocera's sharpening service.
The Feathered edge of Kyocera knives makes them as sharp as a razor blade. The tang extends well into the handle to create a strong connection. The plastic handles are made of resin materials, lightweight, waterproof, and ergonomically shaped for better grip and handling.
