Kyocera's premium cutlery line features stunning Damascus-look blades. Close in hardness to diamond, these advanced ceramic knifes feature Kyotop (Hot- Isostatic pressed) "HIP" blades. These blades are fired a second time under high pressure and temperature in a sealed chamber. This process increases the density of the advanced ceramic material, resulting in greater wear resistance. The moisture-resistant, 3 riveted handles are made out of Pakka wood. This fine Sashimi knife features an 8.25" blade, the longest ever offered by Kyocera. Essential for preparing sashimi and other Japanese delicacies. Sleek grounded, polished blade in white.
