A great first-time introduction to using a Kyocera ceramic knife in the kitchen, especially for the beginning home cook. The 5.5" Santoku Knife is a traditional Japanese shape with straight cutting edge, rounded shoulder, and curved handle to provide control when cutting. This is the ideal all around knife for slicing, dicing, or mincing. Can be used on fruit, vegetables, as well as boneless meat.
Ceramic blades are made from Kyocera's proprietary zirconia material produced in Japan for exceptional quality and beauty. Ultra-sharp, pure advanced ceramic blades will maintain their edge up to 10x longer than steel blades. Lightweight and easy to clean, the blades will not brown food, are rust-proof and resistant to acids
Ideal for slicing fruits, vegetables and boneless meats, not to be used on hard or frozen foods.
