New Ceramic Bladed Vertical Peeler Offers Quality & Comfort In The Kitchen.

About Advanced Ceramics - Manufactured in Japan, these unique
ceramic cutlery and accessories products from Kyocera are
renowned for their exceptional technical characteristics. To
make the blades, ceramic material is ground into a micro-fine
powder, made into slurry and poured into a machine where it is
subjected to 100 tons of pressure and molded into blades.
Following the molding process, the blades are sintered at a
temperature of over 1,000 degrees, surface finished, tumbled and
buffed. The blades are then precision-polished, buffed, honed
and sharpened using diamond wheels to create the primary cutting
edge. The result is a zirconium oxide blade that is extremely
sharp and durable, close to diamond in hardness.
