A good knife handle must be light, strong and be comfortable for the user to hold. These features provide a safe and efficient knife handle. The handle has two vertical pieces that cover the extension of the blade of the knife. (the part of the knife between the handle pieces is also called the tang....see below) Each of the two handle pieces has the same horizontal diameter. They cover the extension from the knife blade, which extends partially or completely the length of the handle. A quality kitchen knife tang runs the entire width and length of the handle and can be seen between the handle parts. Rivets hold the blade extension and the handle parts together.
With their headquarters in Kyoto, Japan the Kyocera Corporation is one of the world's leading manufacturers of fine ceramic components for the technology industry.

Kyocera knives were launched in Japan in 1984. Despite their highly technical production, Kyocera believe nothing can replace skilled craftsmanship and many years experience, therefore all Kyocera ceramic knives are individually ground by hand.
