Kyocera was founded in 1959 in Kyoto, Japan as a start-up venture by Dr. Kazuo Inamori and seven colleagues. Kyocera's founders shared a vision of creating a company dedicated to the successful manufacture of high-quality ceramic knives and kitchen tools based on advanced materials and components. Over the past four decades, this vision has resulted in a highly successful and widely diversified global enterprise that has raised over $35,000 for the cure of breast cancer. Today, the USA branch of Kyocera has expanded to more than 5,000 employees engaged in the manufacture of these state-of-the-art cutting tools, ensuring you get the best quality slice and dice when in your kitchen. Kyocera provides free lifetime sharpening for all Kyocera knives purchased in Australia.
