Smaller chefs knives are the newest trend in gourmet cutlery. This 6-inch blade is perfect for slicing, dicing and chopping all me...dium sized foods. Red is hot. Red is energizing. Studies have even shown that exposure to red quickens the pulse and increases the appetite. No wonder red continues to be increasingly prevalent in home fashion + especially in the kitchen! Mundials 5100 Series Red adds a burst of color and contemporary style to a classic assortment of premium fully forged cutlery. A chefs true individual style will come through with the 5100 Series Red - a bright new look in high-performance gourmet cutlery. Fully forged from high-carbon stainless steel, this premium cutlery collection features traditional three-riveted red polyacetal handles. The Value of a Fully Forged Knife Mundial knives, with very few exceptions, are fully forged in a manufacturing process that combines innovative technology with Old World tradition and expertise. In the forging process, steel is heated to an extremely high temperature, set into a die and hammered into the shape of the basic blade. Following a process of heating and cooling, the forged blade is ground to create a full taper to the cutting edge. The result is a stronger, thicker, more resilient blade that flares smoothly at the heel to blend into the shape of the handle. Cutlery that is fully forged offers an array of key benefits including greater tensile strength, increased durability, lasting sharpness, and better balance and control.

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.

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
