Kyocera Debuts Premier Elite Ceramic Cutlery

Kyocera has launched its Premier Elite cutlery. The company stated that the ceramic blade is designed to provide strength and sharpness and it is decorated with a pattern reminiscent of a traditional Japanese Zen sand garden.

The cutlery design features a black Pakka wood handle with stainless steel rivets and bolster. The handle’s flat-sided oval shape was inspired by the shape of a Koban, an old Japanese gold coin, the company noted.

The collection includes a 3-inch paring knife, 4.5-inch utility knife, 5.5-inch Santoku knife, 6-inch Santoku knife and 7-inch chef’s knife. The Premier Elite Series come in a gift box, with suggested retail prices ranging from $139.95 to $299.95. The knives are available for immediate shipping.
