Kyocera Corporation, the headquarters and parent company of the global Kyocera group, was founded in 1959 in Kyoto, Japan as a start-up venture by Dr. Kazuo Inamori and seven colleagues. Kyocera's founders shared a vision of creating a company dedicated to the successful manufacture and sale of innovative, high-quality products based on advanced materials and components. Over the past four decades, this vision has resulted in a highly successful and widely diversified global enterprise.
Kyocera's North American operations have contributed strongly to the company's overall success. We established our first North American sales company in 1969, a two-person operation serving Silicon Valley's burgeoning semiconductor industry and other high-tech markets throughout the United States. Our North American operations have since expanded to more than 5,000 employees engaged in the manufacture and sale of a broad range of state-of-the-art, high-technology products in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Today, Kyocera is the world's largest and highest quality manufacturer of advanced ceramic knives, kitchen tools and stationery products.
Sharpening & Warranty Info
Only Genuine Kyocera Advanced Ceramic Knives can be sharpened by Kyocera
Ceramic starts out sharper--and stays sharper--longer. In time, you may notice micro nicks on the blade's edge. This is the normal process by which any hard material blade will dull. The existence of microchips does not necessarily mean the knife is dull. You will find that it performs well for quite some time. When the knife no longer performs to your liking, Kyocera's sharpening process will reestablish a new sharp edge. Larger chips and broken tips can often be corrected by sharpening as well.
Kyocera offers Complimentary Sharpening $10 only for shipping and handling, per shipment.
To read our warranty information or if you'd like to have your knife re-sharpened, please print and fill out the following pdf, (pdf/105KB). Please send the form with your knife, carefully packaged with all sharp edges protected, and enclose a $10 check/money order made out to Kyocera, or your credit card information (card number and expiration date) for shipping & handling (per shipment) to:
