Setting a new standard in ceramic cutlery, the Kyotop collection from the Japanese company Kyocera uses an industrial-grade ceramic that is extremely dense, allowing it to resist wear up to ten times longer than steel. The blade is finished in an elegant Damascus-style pattern, and the moisture-resistant PakkaWood handle provides a comfortable grip. With all the control of a paring knife plus a bit more length for bigger jobs, this utility knife is perfect for peeling, trimming and slicing. Extremely dense zirconium oxide blade cuts easily through fresh produce and boneless meats and requires very little sharpening. Blade is finished in a traditional Damascus-style pattern. Comfortable, richly grained PakkaWood handle resists moisture. Extremely lightweight, nimble and easy to maneuver. Nonreactive ceramic blade will never corrode from natural acids or oils found in produce. Stick-resistant blade surface releases food easily and is easy to clean. 4 1/2"-long blade, 4 1/2"-long handle; 1.75 oz. Made in China (blade manufactured in Japan).
