Kyoto/Neuss − Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and is held in utmost reverence in the country. The boundless respect for this national sanctuary was what inspired the development of the Fuji knife series. With its traditional, octagon-shaped pakkawood handle, the knife is extremely comfortable to hold. The white ceramic blade complements the elegance of the pakkawood handle, giving the knife a pure look and feel, and turns cooking into a joy. Kyocera’s Fuji knives will be available in specialist shops from January, in sizes of 13 cm, 15 cm and 17 cm. Depending on the size, the recommended retail price is 74,99 €, 84,99 € and 94,99 €.

Kizuna Series

Kizuna is the Japanese word for ‘bond’ – a bond with a tradition that has been observed for hundreds of years. The ceramic knives from the Kizuna series dazzle with their unusual design. The black ceramic blades are sintered for a second time at a temperature of 1,500°C and a pressure of up to 20,000 t/m2. The blades are subsequently finished with a traditional sand garden wave design. The studs on the black pakkawood handle complete the overall aesthetic appearance. Knives from the Kizuna series will be available in specialist shops from January, in sizes of 7.5 cm, 11 cm, 14 cm, 16 cm and 18 cm. The recommended retail price is 179,99 €, 209,99 €, 289,99 €, 359,99 € and 399,99 €, depending on the price.
