Kyocera's newest premium ceramic knife line features a Damascus pattern on the blades. The blades are fired a second time at a higher temperature and pressure for added hardness and density. The knives come in a black presentation box and make the perfect gift. Please note the KT-155-HIP replaces the old KC-200. The only difference is the KT-155-HIP has a damascus pattern on the blade and the ceramic blade is denser and of higher quality than the old KC-200.
