The handles are made from recycled cell phones

Is there a secret phone in one of the knives?

Recycled phones that no one ever bought.

My cell phone, the Kyocera Hydro, has terrible reception, and it always cuts out, but it supposedly can survive underwater. Based on that, I'd be willing to bet these are pretty good waterproof knives.

If you buy the knives and attach it to your cell you'll get perfect reception. Just don't cut off your ear.

I've had these knives for years (with black handles) and they're terrific.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

I own this set (just not in this fetching red-white combination) and would recommend it to anyone who is comfortable around really sharp knives. Don't slack off, pay attention while you're slicing, these things will cut through a fingernail where a steel knife will just glance off.
Have had them for half a year or so, and they seem just as sharp as they day I got 'em (maybe even sharper!!!!), and they've seen pretty good use.
It bears repeating: vegetables, fruit, and soft protein (no bones) only, otherwise you *will* chip these puppies. I'd avoid frozen stuff too.

Their website claims 'free lifetime sharpening' (I assume you pay shipping) Here's how they do it:

since it's incomprehensible to some that a company that makes some things could also make other things, i found a video review:

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

The only thing better would be one red and one green. Oh well! :-/

Kyocera has their fingers in a lot of pies...they have annual sales of over $15 billion. So yes, they do also make printers. One of their big divisions is industrial ceramics, and that's where these knives come from. And they are wonderful knives.

Maybe I'm imagining it, but I think this was just on sale for $40 as a part of a home.woot+ cutlery deal.

Kyocera is THE name in ceramic kitchen knives.

I have the santoku but not the paring knife. It's sharp and well made.

It's a little short and light for me. I use it for some stuff, and it is my "kitchen helper" knife, but I prefer my longer, heavier (but not heavy) steel chef's knife.

There are some tips for using a ceramic knife, but I won't bother typing them since this deal has sold out.
