Great vegetable slicer - best suited to small itemsOct 16, 2006
By R. DeCristofaro
This knife, like all of Kyocera's ceramic knives, is good looking and has a terrific sharp edge. Like the rest of their plastic handled series, the grip is contoured to be thinner at the front and back and wider in the middle. The grip feels comfortable in the hand, and provides for good positive control over the blade.
In general size, this is very similar to the Kyocera 5" utility knife in this series (which is an excellent general kitchen knife). However, the blade is not as tall as the unserrated knife, and this one has a micro-serrated edge. The size and shape make this blade better suited for slicing than chopping, but for slicing vegetables, it is very effective.
The serrations on the blade are barely visible, but they have a definite effect when cutting. Despite being tiny, the serrations let the blade 'grip' what you cut more effectively. This makes slicing at angles much easier, especially on food with a smooth skin, such as tomatoes. The knife is also decent for bread, certainly better than an unserrated knife, but not as quite as good as a knife with a deeply serrated edge.
Although the serrated edge probably means that the blade will be difficult to sharpen, the ceramic isn't expected to need sharpening for a long time. Between the ceramic composition of the blade and the plastic handle, this knife requires very little care other than basic washing.
This knife is available with either a white or black blade (I actually have the black-bladed version), both with a black handle.
While this may not be as good a universal utility knife as the unserrated version, or as good for chopping as a larger blade, this knife makes a great vegetable slicer and a terrific addition to the a set of kitchen knives.

great knife, so sharpNov 23, 2007
By DC Chuck
I bought this knife 8 months ago, i was looking for a tomato slicing knife, as although i have a decent set of chicago cutlery knives, they need to be sharpened before slicing tomatoes. I also wanted to try out 'ceramic' knives without a big investment.
This knife is amazing, it's still as sharp as it was the first time i used it and its the only knife i use for slicing veggies.

Outstanding SharpnessOct 17, 2007
I recently received this knife as a gift and I could not be more pleased. I have used it to trim the fat from a brisket prior to smoking it, and trimming the ends off of vegetables, amongst other things. The trimming of the fat was like cutting through paper. It was so smooth and easy. Trimming vegegtables was a snap, with smooth cuts and no resistance.

Serrations great for tomatos, but that's itJun 25, 2010
By A. D. Ladner
I bought this to have a very sharp small kitchen knife. I figured that the serrations wouldn't hurt, and would definitely add value with regard to slicing tomatoes. OOPS!
The serrations make slicing tomatoes, especially thin skinned very ripe ones, a breeze. Unfortunately, they "catch" on other food actually increasing the work needed to cut. Needless to say, I suppose, is that the stroke used with this knife is a pull (it will not work with a "pressing" action), but for some reason a push stroke doesn't seem as effective.
Also note that this knife is physically light weight (good for some, less good for others).
I looked at the recommendations for this knife, and some of them seem to be for Kyocera ceramic knives in general, not this specific 5" serrated knife. Do yourself a favor; if you are just purchasing a small sharp kitchen knife, try the regular blade. If you know that you want the serrations, then this knife will be for you.

this knife is a rock starJan 27, 2010
By Helen Hostetter
I've had one of these for about a year, and just gave one as a housewarming gift. I love it. The knife is labeled on the package (but not on this website)as a tomato knife, and that's what it's best at. It has tiny serrations in the blade, and those serrations cut through tomato skins better than any other knife - where normal knives sometimes slip on the skin, this knife cuts clean through. It really makes prep work faster and more pleasant. If you want to buy the knife, there are a few things you should know...
1) Save the manufacturer's insert - the insert contains instructions and a coupon for shipping the knife back to the manufacturer for sharpening. You can't sharpen it yourself - it's a ceramic blade, and specially designed. This much being said, I've used it a few times a week for a year, and haven't noticed a dropoff in performance yet.
2) The knife is ceramic, and that means that you can't torque it or bend it - metal knives are more flexible and ceramic can break. So, if I were slicing up something really heavy duty or using my knife to pry or twist (not something I'd want to do with the expensive knife, regardless), I'd use something else.
3) The knife is small and light and looks a little like a toy; it's still sharp as heck. However, if you want to cut up larger things (like butternut squash), larger knives work better.
