In Japanese, the kanji character for beauty is and can be read as “vi“. The word for ceramics can be shortened to “cera“, and writen as . Combined, the name ViCera™ (pronounced “vee-say-rah’) means beautiful ceramics. At ViCera™ , they take great pride in their products as highly functional works of art. From beginning to end, their master craftsmen give careful attention to each and every blade to consistently produce unparalleled sharpness that lasts far longer than steel. The naturally brilliant, white blades are made using only pure Japanese zirconia ceramic and embody the traditional Japanese aesthetic of purity.
The primary difference between ViCera™ and other ceramic knife manufacturers is the size of the zirconium oxide particles in the finished blade. Using advanced technology, the zirconium oxide particles in ViCera™ blades are reduced to one-fifth of their original size. They are then pressed using 500 tons of pressure (compared to the 200 tons used by other ceramic producers). The end result is a stronger, denser blade with substantially longer edge retention.
Because ViCera™ knives are forged to such exacting standards, there is no need to polish the entire blade before the final presentation, which other manufacturers must do. When applied to the entire blade, polishing can create tiny, almost invisible cracks, compromising quality and making the knife more susceptible to breakage. ViCera™ blades are only polished on the cutting edge revealing a brilliant, dense, white blade that naturally resists staining.
I received the Chef’s Knife ($79.98), which does a fantastic job at cutting fruit and vegetables just like a stainless steel knife would, but much better! I was a bit afraid of chipping the knife by it being ceramic, but I haven’t had any problems so far. While it takes a bit more time with a stainless steel knife, this knife gets the job done within no time. By it being lightweight, there is no need to put weight on it like I would with any other knife. It cuts the fruit and vegetables evenly, which makes the food turn out better when cooking. I never thought anything would beat a stainless knife, but this company certainly knew what they were doing when they thought of ViCera!
Other products from the ViCera line include the Santoku Knife ($69.98), Paring Knife ($39.98), and Utility Knife ($59.98).
