Maintaining your knives is essential for optimal cutting performance. Kyocera uses their advanced ceramic that is close in hardness to a diamond for their Steel Knife Sharpener. The strength of the ceramic sharpening wheel will create a razor-like edge on steel knives. This sharpener is not meant for use with ceramic knives.
Guides on the sharpener allow you to quickly, and precisely put a clean, sharp edge on your metal knives. When you are sharpening, rubber feet help protect and secure the sharpener from slipping. After you have finished sharpening your knives, the cover on the Kyocera Steel Knife Sharpener opens up so dust and shavings can be quickly dumped and rinsed out.
