If you own ceramic material kitchen knives, then this is the sharpener for you. We have never recommended end users sharpening their own ceramic knives before, we always encouraged them to send them back to the manufacturer for maintenance. Kyocera is a foremost producer of ceramic material products, and when they decided to make a sharpener we were very excited. This sharpener uses diamonds, runs on batteries, is very safe, and is quite easy to use. If you own ceramic knives, this is the sharpener for you.
