Why Ceramic?


Ceramic knives are harder than other kinds of knives and are therefore able to resist wear to a much greater extent. Independent testing has established that ViCera™ ceramic knives retain their sharp cutting edge 300 times more than stainless steel knives.

According to the CATRA Sharpness Test, a knife is dull when it no longer cuts 5mm of test paper. The numbers above represent the total depth of test paper cut before falling below the 5mm mark.


Ideal for cutting boneless meat, bread, fruits, vegetables, pastries and so on, ceramic is always a joy to use. Experience the sharp cutting edge unique to ceramic knives.


Thanks to ceramic's chemical neutrality, no harmful interaction ever occurs between ceramic and the food it comes in contact with. Ceramic leaves no metallic taste on the food it cuts, allowing you to enjoy the natural taste of food. Ceramic also, will not discolor food.


ViCera™ ceramic knives weigh just half that of traditional steel or stainless steel knives, making them easy to handle and use.


ViCera™ ceramic knives have a double bevel blade and are therefore suitable for right-handed or left-handed users.


ViCera™ ceramic knives can simply be washed with warm water and dish soap.


Ceramic is not a metal, therefore it will never rust. ViCera™ cutlery is made from pure Japanese zirconia ceramic. The particles in the ceramic are ultra-minute and produce a blade that is extremely smooth and stain resistant.

  • Usage

    Take care when using this knife as the blade edge is extremely sharp.

    This knife is used for cutting foodstuffs only. It should not be used for any other purpose such as smashing garlic or any other items by turning the blade on its side.

    Ceramic is not able to withstand shock. If dropped from a height the blade is liable to break.

    Always use a plastic or wood cutting board to protect the edge.

    Do not attempt to cut hard ojects such as bones, frozen food, metal, glass, or earthenware. Do not attempt to cut corn or hard thickened items such as pumpkins. Doing so may cause the blade to chip or crack.

    Do not expose to flames.

    Keep out of reach of children.

    In time, tiny chips may appear on the blades edge. This happens to all ceramic knives and does not affect the knife's cutting ability.
