Sharpen up for the kitchen

Kyocera at the Ambiente 2009

22 January 2009

Kyoto/Neuss – At the Ambiente 2009, Kyocera is once again expanding its range of ceramic kitchen products. The highlights this year are the new PS-180-BK Sashimi knife and the new KC knife series. Star chef Thomas Brunk, team manager of the German cooking national team, will be presenting the innovations in practical use on the Kyocera stand (Hall 9.1 / 1st floor / aisle A / stand 75) from 13th to 16th February.

Kyocera’s ceramic knives are corrosion-free and detract neither from the taste nor the odour of the cut product. Metal ions cannot be transmitted from the blade to the food. In conjunction with ergonomic handles and the astonishingly low weight of their ceramic blades, the knives also simplify the preparation of cutting-intensive food.

The classic knife with new grip

With the PS-180-BK Sashimi knife, Kyocera is offering an extremely sharp knife that is particularly well suited to the preparation of meat dishes such as carpaccio or fish dishes such as the traditional sashimi.
The knife is ground on one side according to Japanese tradition. This blade form and the single-sided grinding have been used in Japan for centuries in the preparation of sashimi and other fish and meat dishes.
The black high-tech zirconia ceramic blade is complemented by a newly designed soft-grip handle that lies comfortably in the hand and further simplifies fine filleting. The recommended retail price is 250 Euros.

A really sharp new line

With the KC Line, Kyocera is again banking on the classic appearance: Five blades of different lengths (from 7.5 to 15 cm) of zirconia high-tech ceramic material are held in an attractive Pakkawood handle. The KC Series comes in a representative packaging. The recommended retail price lies between 85 and 210 Euros, depending on the blade length.

Colourful and practicable

Anyone who likes it more colourful in the kitchen is well-served with the popular Kyocera FK 075 paring knife (zirconia blade length 7.5 cm) with handles in five trendy colours – in blue, yellow, green, orange and red. They are thus the ideal complements to the colourful peelers. The recommended retail price for the FK 075 is 29 Euros.
