#HolidayGiftGuide - Miyako Knives



I have never said that I was a great cook...
That being said, I am sure that I do not have all the up and coming cooking items.
Before Marc, I begged for a certain set of cookware for Christmas....
Also, I will tell you that we registered for a knife set when we got married...
Ha, actually, most of our wonderful kitchen appliances are from when we got married!
Other than that, I don't think we have anything super spectacular!

Have you ever even heard of ceramic knives?
I asked a friend about them and she spoke of them like I should know, just like everyone knows that we live on Earth!
I had no idea...
Not to mention that I learned that they are great in preventing oxidation...
(As in, cut your apples, with them and they are not going to brown as fast as if you cut them with a regular knife!)
Learn something new everyday!

We received a set of Miyako Ceramic Knives for review...
Let me tell you, I opened the box and was like:
Well, this must be pretty fancy, as they are in their own nicely packaged box!
Not to mention, they are beautiful!
The blades are white... Beautiful (and comfortable) black grips on the handle...
We received the pairing knife and the peeler.
Also, we reviewed the Chef's Knife...

Okay, I am always 100% honest in my posts...
So, let me just go ahead and get to it...
You ready?
I cut myself!

Yep!
I was chopping up an onion and was not used to it working so smoothly...
I was barely moving the knife and it was just chopping away!
I felt like I would have made Chef Ramsey proud...
Until. Then.

Cut!
It was like a director yelled it.
I was sort of shocked. Did I really cut myself?
I think I did, but I really did not feel anything.
Sure enough... Cut.

That was the only bad thing that I can say about these knives.
If that is the negative, we are in luck!
Don't you want a knife that is going to cut?
Well, it does!




From their website:
Not all ceramic knives are created equal. On the outside, they can look and feel the same, but after a bit of use, their differences quickly become apparent. Miyako Ceramics has taken extra steps to ensure that all of our ceramic knives are a cut above the competition. We pay extra attention to all the details to give you a knife as only Miyako can. Every ceramic knife we manufacture includes all of these features:
Stunning High Gloss Finish

On the outside Miyako ceramic knives feature a stunning high-gloss finish. The glossy ceramic blade is not only aesthetically pleasing; it also enhances the anti-bacterial properties by preventing foods from sticking to the blade. The high-gloss finish also prevents staining and allows for easy cleaning.

Precisely Honed Cutting Edge

Extensive testing and several revisions later, this blade finally received the Miyako stamp of approval. Our fine tuned process creates a knife with over 10x the edge retention of a metal knife and a sharpness exclusive to Miyako. The cutting edge has been honed to offer the sharpest and most durable we can offer.

Super Soft Ultra-Comfort Handle

All Miyako ceramic knives feature an ultra-comfort grip. The handle is super soft to the touch (you have to touch it to believe it!). The ergonomic handle feels natural and balanced in your hands even for the novice user. The handle was designed with the user's experience in mind. Every curve was put in place for the most natural feel, perfect for right or left handed users.

Extensive Quality Assurance

Our manufacturing process was developed to create the ultimate cutting knife. Each step is closely monitored to ensure the end result is a precision slicing tool. Using the latest technology and good old fashion human eyes, any knife that does not meet our strict guidelines are rejected, ensuring you the highest quality product we can offer.

Extra Hard Ceramic

Ceramic material all come from similar raw materials, but that is where the similarities end. Miyako Ceramics uses zirconium oxide with grain sizes less than 0.6 µm. When these tiny ceramic grains are heated and pressed together, the result is a material that is denser and harder than other ceramic knives in the industry. We press the ceramic material to pressures upwards of 300 tons, creating a blade that approaches the hardness of diamonds. The denser and harder the blade, the better its durability and edge retention.
