4.5 in. Ceramic Slicing Knife

Product # CDFK115BK-KYOCERA-REVOLUTION-SANTOKU
Retail $69.95 and up

Sale Price $59.95
Temporary Price Match by CM $39.95 (plus bonus mystery gift)

This is the new 4.5 in. Kyocera Revolution Mini Santoku Knife, it holds an edge without sharpening. A multi use knife with a deeper blade for slicing, dicing and mincing. Perfect for the home cook, this knife will be used daily, quickly becoming a favorite in the kitchen. Ideal for fruits, vegetables and boneless meats. The Revolution series feature an extra hefty black handle and a perfect balance. This is a great ceramic knife, it's very comfortable and easy to use. The weight is about half of steel knives making it comfortable for extended use. The ultra sharp ceramic blade cuts with precision and accuracy every time maintaining a razor-sharp edge for many years. These knives are made of an advanced, high-tech ceramic, second in hardness only to diamond, it was originally developed for industrial applications where metal components failed.
Chef Notes: These knives are a great choice for Chefs and Gourmet Cooks! We tested several brands of ceramic knives - Here's the results! Kyocera was the only knife sharp enough to meet our demands, the others were too dull or the blades were too thin and brittle. Only Kyocera scored very high in sharpness, quality, workmanship, material and warranty.
