I LOVE MY CERAMIC KNIFES

About a week or so ago, I bought these knifes on Amazon.com

They came the other day, but today was the first time I used one of them ... WOW :woohoo: .

I think this is the BEST knife I have ever used ... the large one (and I own a very nice set of knives.

If you need a knife, #0 is hard to match!

    Stay away from bones, etc... They are very good but chip easy.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    I got my wife a nice 6" "chef" ceramic knife when they first came out --- pricey! :blink:

    She loved it. :laugh:

    My son came to visit... and when no one was looking, set the cutting board up on end, and from about 5' away, tossed the knife [expert he thought himself to be...]

    Bad day for the ceramic knife pieces...

    :ohmy:

    Smokey...it appears in the photo that the chefs knife will not flat on a cutting board. Meaning the handle will touch the cutting board before the heal of the blade when cutting. Is this just an illusion? Sorry just curious to know.

    Thanks,

  • My ceramics are some of the sharpest knives I have and are easy to use. They are easily chipped and the chance of breaking them is what is keeping me from using them more. Enjoy them!
  • The ceramic knives are wonderful, no metallic taste in foods, don't turn acidic foods colors, always sharp.. but be careful, they will break if dropped and are so easy to chip the cutting edge.

    They'll cut you in a heartbeat too, so use care!
  • I wouldn't call that a chef's knife to begin with. The blade has almost no curve along the sharp edge. I would think that it would be awkward to use as a chef's knife.

    I have tried ceramic and they are ok. I will stick with cold hard steel...

    I am saving to get a couple of these.
