Kyocera ceramic knife shipments exceed 10 million


Kyocera Corp announced Tuesday that total shipments of its ceramic knives have recently exceeded the 10 million unit milestone.

In 1984, Kyocera was the first company in Japan to start manufacturing and selling kitchen knives with blades made of fine ceramics, also known as advanced ceramics. Since then, Kyocera has been continually enhancing the material technology and design of its knives, developing its product lineup with various colors and styles, and expanding its sales network, converting more and more customers around the world into fans of ceramic knives. Of late, popularity of Kyocera's knives has been rapidly growing, with annual shipments exceeding one million units in the past few years, and accumulated shipments since 1984 surpassing the 10 million unit mark.

Great for skin veg like tomatoes and eggplant, but prone to chipping for anything harder.

Interesting. I have a ceramic sharpener I picked up at that north lander store. Could I use it on the ceramic blades? Any physics fiends out there?
