Keramikus kitchen knives

Overview   Packaging   Process  

Task: to produce beautiful and easy to use ceramic kitchen knives.

Keramikus is a family of kitchen knives made of black ceramic and fitted with faceted handles. The family consists of three knives of various size, shape and purpose: Vegetus for paring, Usubus for slicing and chopping and Shefus, the chef’s knife.

Keramikus knives are made of ultrastrong zirconium dioxide ceramic

Black ceramic knives are hardened in furnaces for longer which makes them stronger than white ceramic ones.

Rules to ensure a long and happy life of your Keramikus knives

Fragile, do not drop Professional sharpening only Do not cut hard foods Keep the handle away from fire

Just like regular knives, Keramikus can cut through everything, though we don’t recommend to use them to chop frozen products and bones, scrape or shave hard surfaces. To keep the blade sharp, it is best to use wooden or plastic cutting boards.
