The Kyocera 6-inch Chef's Knife is geared toward the everyday cutting tasks like chopping, dicing, slicing, and mincing. This hand-finished blade is made from a special ceramic that keeps its edge 10 times longer than traditional metal blades. The shorter ceramic blade is suited for greater control when making cuts.
Unlike regular wooded handles, the Black Pakka wood handle is moisture resistant. This prohibits the growth of bacteria, making it a more hygienic choice than other wooded handles. The layers of wood have been impregnated with phenolic thermosetting resins that fill in the pours areas of the wood, sealing them off. The Black Pakka wood handle is hand-finished into a unique shape. This is not commonly done, because it is a time consuming process. The handle is contoured to the palm of your hand to enhance cutting performance and for a more ergonomic feel.
Ceramic blades are not only known for their lasting sharpness, but also because they are much lighter than their metal counterpart. You will be able to cut longer without feeling fatigue as quickly. Using ceramic blades will not alter the taste of foods they cut because they are contaminate-free and chemically inert.
