ViCera™ Ceramic Cutlery (Review & Giveaway)

A Little Bit About Vicera
                       (ViCera™ means Beautiful Ceramics)
  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™ , we take great pride in our products as highly functional works of art. From beginning to end, our 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.
  During production, our master craftsmen fashion the pure zirconium oxide into knife shaped blanks using high-pressure presses. The finished blanks are then hardened in a process called "sintering", which requires special kilns that can achieve temperatures of over 1000 degrees Celsius. After they are removed from the kilns, the knives are cooled to a naturally brilliant white and then hand-sharpened on a special diamond coated grinding wheel.
   ViCera™ ceramic knives are made of an advanced, high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide (also known as zirconia). Zirconium oxide is extremely hard and wear resistant, rating 8.5 on the Mohs scale - surpassing stainless steel (5-6 Mohs) and approaching the hardness of diamond (10 Mohs). The Mohs scale, developed by mineralogist Friedrich Mohs, is the universally accepted standard for measuring the hardness of minerals.
   When you pick up a ViCera™ ceramic knife, you are holding a perfect balance of new technology and old-world craftsmanship. A brilliant, white blade that is as light as a feather and tougher than nails.
My Experience with the ViCera™  Chef's Knife
I love to cook! My absolute favorite place to be is in the Kitchen whipping up something delicious for my family to enjoy. Since the beginning of time (or so it seems:), I have been using an old set of knives that we purchased while still in college. I was eager to find out if ViCera™ Chef's knife would be all that it was described to be. The night that the knife arrived I was preparing linguine and claims, so I decided to test out the ViCera™ chef's knife right away. I used it to chop the scallions and clam's and I added a variety of fresh veggies to a side salad to accompany our meal. The way this knife handles is amazing! It cut through everything smoothly with little effort at all. Since that first meal, I have used this knife daily in our meal preparations; not only am I pleased, I now plan to purchase the rest of the set! ViCera cutlery is the very best, all that it's described to be...and MORE!
