Kyocera Corporation, the headquarters and parent company of the global Kyocera group, was founded in 1959 in Kyoto, Japan as a start-up venture by Dr. Kazuo Inamori and seven colleagues. Kyocera’s founders shared a vision of creating a company dedicated to the successful manufacture and sale of innovative, high-quality products based on advanced materials and components. Over the past four decades, this vision has resulted in a highly successful and widely diversified global enterprise.
Kyocera’s North American operations have contributed strongly to the company’s overall success. We established our first North American sales company in 1969, a two-person operation serving Silicon Valley’s burgeoning semiconductor industry and other high-tech markets throughout the United States. Our North American operations have since expanded to more than 5,000 employees engaged in the manufacture and sale of a broad range of state-of-the-art, high-technology products in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Today, Kyocera is the world’s largest and highest quality manufacturer of advanced ceramic knives, kitchen tools and stationery products.
3″ Paring and Double Edge Peeler Set
I’m always on the hunt for something new I can add to my kitchen, I figure I spend enough time in there that why not have the best of the best right? One thing that I haven’t been able to satisfy my needs for is with knives, I don’t know what it is but I’ve been so disappointed in all the knives I’ve purchased. It doesn’t matter if they were expensive or cheap, I can always find something I’m not pleased with. It can be the feel of them, they aren’t sharp enough, they are flimsy or they break; yes I’ve had a knife or two break when trying to use it (lol). Whatever the case I’m always on the look out for them, while doing my normal search of the internet I came across Kyocera Advanced Ceramics. I was looking around their site and was pretty please by what I was seeing and reading. They have so many items that are fun colors and are priced great too. I was able to try the 3″ Paring Knife and Double Edge Peeler Set, it looked and sounded awesome on the site but the true test was when it came time to use them both.
These are two of Kyocera Advanced Ceramics bestselling items. The 3” Paring Knife if for cutting trimming, seeding and peeling small fruits and vegetables. The Double Edge Peeler is a classic upright design with an ultra sharp advanced ceramic blade that will peel everything from carrots, cheese, chocolate, even tomatoes. Kyocera advanced ceramic blades offer superior edge retention, holding their edge at least 10 times longer than other professional cutlery, including high carbon steel. Both items are ultra lightweight and are perfectly balanced which reduces fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks. Another huge plus is that Kyocera Advanced Ceramic cutlery and kitchen tools are fully warranted to be free of defects in material and/or craftsmanship. If the product is found defective, Kyocera will repair or replace it. There is also a lifetime complimentary sharpening for the kyocera advanced ceramic knives only. There is a shipping and handling charge required per shipment.
When I first recieved the 3″ Paring Knife and Double Edge Peeler my husband said “Those don’t look all that special and they don’t seem sharp”, I was determined to prove him wrong (lol). First I used the Double Edge Peeler to peel some potatoes, after I peeled a few I grabbed my other peeler then handed a potato and that peeler to my husband. He gave me a confused look at first but then figured out why I had done that, I wanted him to put both peelers to the test. I was quite thrilled with the how easy and effective it was to use the Kyocera peeler but because my husband made his little comment it was only fair to have him test it too. After trying out both he agreed that it was much easier to peel with our new peeler and it did a great job. Of course he apologized for underestimating the products just by looking at it . I used the 3″ Paring Knife and I couldn’t have been happier, it felt like I was cutting through butter no matter what I was using it on. Both these products are simply wonderful and I love the color of them as well. This set would make a wonderful house warming gift too! If you are in the market for some new cutlery I highly recommend checking out Kyocera Advanced Ceramics!
