ZIKICO

 

Fine Cutlery Forged from Minerals


Brand Concept

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:
  1. It is derived from minerals that are nearly as hard as diamond and ruby.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
 
Hardness of gemstones
 
Suppleness of metal
 
Non-allergenic like porcelain
 
If one were to express all of these wonderful characteristics in one word, it would be "ideal."
 
ZIKICO is contributing to the universal dining experience by making full use of the wonders of zirconia.


Origins of the ZIKICO Brand

The brand name ZIKICO is a combination of “Z” for zirconia, “JIKI” (the Japanese word for porcelain), and “CO” for a corporation.
 
The logo is comprised of two overlapping rhombuses, illustrative of the crystal structures contained
in zirconia.
