Kyocera Corp. plans to boost annual shipments of its ceramic knives to two million units per year by the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014--an increase of 120% over last fiscal year's volume of 900,000. The company will also strengthen its main manufacturing facilities for ceramic knives in order to meet expected growth in global demand.

Kyocera knives and kitchen utensils are made using the company's fine ceramics, resulting in lightweight blades that stay sharp for long periods, never corrode, and can be bleached for thorough cleaning. These characteristics have contributed to the growing popularity of Kyocera's ceramic knives since their introduction in 1984.
