Kyocera Ceramic Knife Review


I bought this Ceramic Knife for a family member a while back and all she did was rave about it. I decided to ask my husband for the same one for Christmas. It is a Kyocera Advanced Ceramic Revolution Series 4.5-inch Utility Knife that was from Amazon for around $25.00.

I never would have thought a Ceramic Knife would be sharp enough to cut anything which is why I never bought one. Then the hefty price definitely stopped me from getting one as I am a frugal spender (OK I’m cheap). But I couldn’t come up with anything for my Christmas list so I thought I would give it a try.

I loved that it was red since that is my favorite color. I didn’t like that it didn’t come in a case to protect the blade. I made a foil sleeve for it and it worked perfectly!

Now how do I like it? I don’t think I will ever buy a regular knife again. This was the sharpest (which could be dangerous) knife I have ever owned. I use it for everything! It even cut my partially frozen meat perfectly that I sliced for my beef jerky.

The only negative thing I can think of (other than I wish it had a case to store it in) is that it is so sharp and when I used it to cut food in my glass casserole dish, it actually cut into the glass leaving it scratched. So my advice is to not cut on anything except a cutting board because it will scratch it. This gets a 5 star rating from me!

I was not compensated for this review, it is my honest opinion.

  1. Wow, that sounds awesome. I thought the same thing as you Diane. I will have to see how much they charge in Canada. Unless the border restrictions are lifted, I can’t do pick ups in the US anymore.

  2. I’ve never had a ceramic knife. It would never occur to me that the ceramic knife will be durable. Thank you, I will buy it.

  3. Thank you for your review, Diane. My one DIL has ceramic knives, she likes hers too! I don’t know the brand name though. 🙂

  4. Many years ago, a friend of mine and I went to an open house for a copier/printer/scanning company. They had asked us to come because they were trying to sell the company I worked for the idea that we could store documents more efficiently than having paper all over the place. They had a raffle drawing and my friend won a Kyocera knife (they also manufacture copy machines, at least they did in 2004). The knife cost nearly $200. We took it back with us and tried to cut a tomato and the slices were paper thin. She loved that knife. Yes, it was super sharp, but it could cut anything. We haven’t discussed it lately, but I am certain she still has it. I have a couple Cutco knives and they are good knives, but that Kyocera knife was a gem!

  5. My husband loves a good sharp knife … currently we only have one (which is in constant use). Keeping in mind the exchange rate from US dollar to South African Rand (which I think is x 14 👀), it might cost us a pretty penny!
    But if it works like you said, it might just be the perfect gift for our 25th anniversary … the question I have though, can you buy a knife for your husband to celebrate 25 years of love … 😉

  6. That’s an interesting review, Diane. I’m not familiar with this knife, so I’m glad to learn about it and get your honest comments. I’m tempted to order one, but then I think it might be too dangerous for this klutz to have. LOL!

    • The one I bought for a family member actually cut her finger pretty good. I told my husband he is not allowed to use it just for that reason. He chopped part of his finger the other day with the new vegetable peeler I bought him. I’m sure my time is coming but if anything happens to this knife I will order another.

  7. Thanks for the review. My only issue with a really sharp knife is ending up cutting myself. I have to be really careful. I’d not heard of a ceramic knife. I’ll have to check them out. What about a knife block that holds knives for your new knife and others?

      • I stayed at a woman’s home and she had a fancy set of knives. I got so weary of the how to handle her knives lectures, over and over and over, that I gave up and used only my $3 knife I had purchased in an Asian market 🙂
