The Kyocera Santoku 14cm Ergonomic Ceramic Knife is the knife that stays incredibly sharp for ten years. It saves mucking around getting stainless steel knives professionally sharpened two or three times a year.

Enter The Black Knife. Buy it, use it, enjoy it. It's made from zirconia (seen in imitation diamonds), and is 30% harder than hardened steel. This wicked black blade goes through a further high temperature process than regular ceramics. To be even harder, sharper, and more beautiful to use.

Ceramic blades are the best for vegetarian and raw foods (sushi, for example) because they leave no metallic taint, and don't react and discolor the flesh. The browning after cutting an apple or lettuce doesn't happen with a ceramic knife

Kyocera invented ceramic knives - in 1984. They are still the world leaders, despite it being only a tiny part of their business – they leapt to world fame in the 1960s for ceramic semi-conductors in TVs, and tube insulators for the space program.

The Santoku name refers in Japanese to the shape's "three virtues" of slicing, dicing and mincing. It leaves your old stainless steel knives for the things a ceramic knife should never attempt : carving, prying, boning, and chopping frozen foods.

The Black Knife will make you want to effortlessly cut tomatoes again and again. Because you can.
