When one thinks of Kyocera, knife sharpeners are the last thing that generally comes to mind as they are better known for mobile phones, electronics, semiconductors and printers.
I was surprised to find they make cooking utensils, stationary supplies (pens and scissors), fine ceramic cutting tools as well as knife sharpeners.
The battery powered Kyocera Electric Diamond Knife Sharpener for Ceramic Knives is just that,for ceramic knives only, and this fact is driven home in their instruction manual. The sharpener is the perfect solution for at-home resharpening of your ceramic kitchen knives. Ideal for Kyocera Ceramic knives (with the exception of those listed below) the diamond grinding stone can remove nicks of up to .5 mm off a blade, achieving a 35-degree angle. A convenient knife guide slot and assist roller allow for a user-friendly, controlled sharpening of the blade.
The sharpener is designed for either left or right handed use but is not recommended for metal (non-ceramic) knives. A replacement diamond grinding stone is available for future use.
For reasons unknown, this sharpener is not recommended for use on the following Kyocera knives –
KT-075-HIP-D, KT-200-HIP-D, KC-25N WH, FK-125N WH or BK-PS-180 BK
