Fine Cutlery Forged from Minerals
ZIKICO specializes in products made of a unique material called zirconia, which is a type of
ceramic made from minerals.
Zirconia has three main characteristics that give it the ideal properties for cutlery:
- It is derived from minerals that are nearly as hard as diamond and ruby.
- It is made up of two types of crystals, each with different properties that adapt to external forces. This gives zirconia an even balance of metal-like hardness and suppleness.
- It is made by sintering at a high temperature of about 1400 degrees Celsius (2550 degrees Fahrenheit).
Much like pottery, zirconia does not release any metal ions or cause allergic reactions.
