Made in Japan, this paring knife is ideal for trimming, peeling, mincing, and creating garnishes. Kyocera's premium cutlery line features a stunning Damascus-like pattern on the hand-finished blade. Close to a diamond in hardness, this advanced ceramic knife has been fired twice, hence offering increased wear-resistance. It will never brown foods or alter taste, smell or appearance of food, and it will never rust. Perfectly balanced and light, this blade reduces fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks.
