Versatile and Efficient: New KYOCERA Diamond Wheel Sharpener for Ceramic and Steel Knives

COSTA MESA, Calif. – June 1, 2017 – The new Kyocera Diamond Wheel Sharpener for Ceramic and Steel Knives features a super-efficient easy-to-use design.  Given the growing popularity of ceramic knives and mixed cutlery collections, this sharpener offers the versatility of refreshing the sharpness of both metal blades and Kyocera ceramic blades.

Knife sharpener

A durable #1000 grit diamond sharpening wheel gives it strength, providing excellent wear resistance and consistent results every time.  The simple design, created for non-serrated blades, makes it simple to use.  Hold the sharpener on a flat level surface.  Put the knife blade in the slot, and lightly pull backwards just a few times for best results.

Sharp blades perform better and are faster and safer to use and they require less effort for a better food prep experience.

The sharpener is easy to clean: empty the contents and rinse with water and dry. It comes in black, with a 10.2 by 3.8-inch footprint.

Made in Japan, the Kyocera Diamond Wheel Knife Sharpener for Ceramic and Steel Knives has a suggested retail price of $19.95.  It is available for immediate shipment.

Kyocera offers a wide range of ceramic knives, kitchen tools, ceramic-coated cookware, and accessories. For additional information, contact:
