The 5-1/2-inch Santoku performs a wide variety of cutting tasks, from fine chopping to dicing and paper-thin slicing.

The 3-inch parer is ideal for peeling, cutting, shaping fruits and vegetables. And they come packaged in an elegant black presentation box.</p> <div class="leftImage" style="width:350px"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/kyocera-santoku_paring-white.jpg" width="350" height="340" alt="Kyocera Revolution Paring and Santoku Knife Set" /><div class="imageCaption">Packaged in an elegant black presentation box.</div> </div> <p>Part of the Revolution series, Kyocera's most popular line, these knives feature ultra-sharp ceramic blades as well as a deeper profile for greater knuckle clearance. And unlike steel blades, ceramic blades will never rust or change from its natural state. Comfortable, ergonomic resin handles provide precise control, while their distinctive shape makes it both easy to find and easy to use. </p> <p>Kyocera has pioneered advanced ceramic kitchen knives, which are impervious to acids, juices, oils and salts, leave no metallic taste or odor, and help maintain the freshness of fruit and vegetables. The razor-sharp blade retains its original sharpness 10 times longer than steel knives. And because the ceramic blade is so light, no artificial weight is added to the handle. This creates an extremely balanced, lightweight tool that reduces fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks.</p> <div class="rightImage" style="width:300px"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/kyocera-revolution-aplus-ming-sig.jpg" width="300" height="247" alt="Ming Tsai for Kyocera" /><div class="imageCaption">"I love these ceramic tools. Perfect for prep tasks and quick meals, they're the ones I always reach for." -- Ming Tsai, Emmy award-winning chef</div> </div> <p>Kyocera knives are made in Japan, and they should only be washed by hand. Use on a wood or plastic cutting board. All Kyocera ceramic products are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for five years. </p> <p>Because diamond wheels are required to sharpen ceramic knives, you should only use the Kyocera Electric Ceramic Knife Sharpener for re-sharpening at home. Additionally, Kyocera offers a complimentary re-sharpening service (shipping fee required; see more below).</p> <h4>The Kyocera Advantage</h4> <h5>The Sharpest Blade Available</h5> <p>According to The Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association (CATRA), an independent testing organization: "Recent tests show that the life of a Kyocera ceramic blade without resharpening is approximately 15 times that of a typical steel blade." Advanced Ceramic, or Zirconium Oxide, is extremely dense, achieving a much tighter weave than any metal material, resulting in the finest and sharpest edge possible.</p> <h5>The Most Durable and Strongest Blade Available</h5> <p>Manufactured in Japan, a Kyocera knife goes through a 12-step quality-controlled process. Much like a fine cigar, one knife will pass through the hands of over a dozen people from sifting through a rock material to the sintering and pressurizing process that hardens the Zirconium Oxide to the molding, shaping and lasering of the knife. The secret is in the ceramic material, extreme high temperatures and literally tons of pressure; a proprietary process resulting in a superior product. Kyocera has spent over 5 decades perfecting the art of the most durable ceramic available today. It's why other manufacturers want Kyocera either making their ceramic products or they attempt to recreate our products. </p> <h4><a name="sharpening">Complimentary Sharpening Service</h4> <p>The only service of its kind available, Kyocera provides FREE knife sharpening. Customers send their knives (unlimited) to our Southern California address, paying only for shipping & handling, to get their knives professionally sharpened back to a factory edge. Each knife goes through a proprietary 5-step sharpening process on a diamond wheel and diamond belt since diamond is the only material harder than zirconium oxide. Chefs and customers get their knives back in 7-10 days as sharp or sharper than out of the box. (For more information, download and print out <a>this form.) People love this service. Kyocera also has an Electric Ceramic Knife Sharpener available for at-home refreshing of Kyocera ceramic knives.</p> <h4>About Kyocera</h4> <p>Kyocera Corporation, the parent and global headquarters of the Kyocera Group, was founded in 1959 as a producer of advanced ceramics. Kyocera has become a leading supplier of advanced ceramic to several industries including: housewares, medical, aerospace, solar power generating systems, telecommunications equipment, electronic components, printers, copiers, semiconductor packages, cutting tools and industrial ceramics. During the year ended March 31, 2010, the company's net sales totaled 1.07 trillion yen (approximately USD11.5 billion). The company is ranked #554 on Forbes magazine's 2010 "Global 2000" listing of the world's largest publicly traded companies.</p> </div> read more

Avoid prolonged contact with leftover food. <li>Do not use bleach, soda or detergents containing chlorine or chlorides ions because they rust the steel and may cause it to lose its shine. <li>Avoid rubbing your knives with abrasive products, hard cloths, and metallic or synthetic cleaners. <li>If you use a dishwasher, place your knives in with the blades facing up and in separate containers from the rest of your cutlery to avoid scratching. <li>Avoid leaving your knives submerged in water for long periods of time, especially in hard or salty water that can affect metals. <li>Dry immediately with a soft cloth. <li>Leaving your knives to dry in the dishwasher is not recommended. </ul> <h4>About Arcos</h4> <p>Arcos is a leading Spanish knife manufacturer and one of the oldest knife and cutlery manufacturers in the world. In 1745, Don Juan de Arcos started hand-crafting the first knives and scissors marked with the Arcos brand, and many of these pieces are displayed in the National Museum of Archeology of Madrid. Gregorio Arcos Aroca turned the small hand-crafted workshop into a mass-production factory for professional knives in 1875. And a century later, Gregorio Arcos Villanueva started the international expansion of the company. Today, Arcos is still a family owned business and proud of its remarkable heritage.</p> <p>To learn more about the history of Arcos, see this larger timeline image.</p> </div> read more
