Kyocera Goes Smaller with Revolution 4-inch White Blade Ceramic Mini Santoku Knife
Razor-sharp blade, ergonomic handle that provides a comfortable and highly controlled grip, ability to perform a wide variety of cutting tasks from fine chopping to dicing and paper-thin slicing–these traits have enabled Kyocera’s White Blade Ceramic Santoku Knives to command a loyal following among chefs and kitchen enthusiasts worldwide.
The popular 5-1/2-inch version of the Santoku knife remains the tool of choice for slicing large objects like big roasts and bread loaves.
But Kyocera didn’t forget about the need for a tool with all the Santoku benefits designed specifically for smaller hands chopping smaller portions like boneless meats, fish, fruits and vegetables.
So the company extended its line of Santoku knives, joining the popular 5-1/2-inch Santoku with the 4-inch Mini Santoku knife, which provides all the advantages of the larger knife — just on a smaller scale.
With its white blade and distinctively shaped black resin handle, the 4-inch Mini Santoku is perfect for the smaller hand or for those who just want to feel a little more control.
The FK Revolution series offers a lower price point, more knuckle clearance and comfortable ergonomic handles providing precise control. Zirconium oxide blades stay razor sharp at least 10 times longer than traditional cutlery, making them ideal for everyday use.
Ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative to steel. Unlike steel knives, ceramic blades will not transfer metal ions to food, nor corrode from acids or oils in fruits and vegetables. Ceramic will never rust. At half the weight of an equivalent steel knife, a ceramic knife becomes a comfortable extension of the hand, minimizing fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks. The knives are used with a wood or plastic cutting board, and cleaned by simply hand washing or wiping with a towel.
Features and Benefits:
• Unrelenting Sharpness: The strength and density of advanced ceramics allows grinding to microscopic precision by diamond wheels. This hardness translates into a rock-like edge that will not roll like conventional blades. Edge retention is the most significant benefit of using ceramic blades, which stay razor-sharp 10 times longer than conventional steel blades, including high carbon steels.
• Unparalleled Purity: Ceramic is a pure and healthy alternative. Unlike steel blades, ceramic blades will never rust or change from their natural state. Ceramic is totally impervious to juices, salts or other elements. As a result, it will never alter the taste, smell or appearance of food.
• Ultra Lightweight: Ceramic blades are typically half the weight of equivalent metal blades. With no artificial weight unnecessarily added to the handle, ceramic creates an extremely balanced, lightweight tool that becomes a comfortable extension of the hand.
