Does anyone else have a ceramic knife?  I think I first saw them being used by Ming S on his cooking show.  

I saw some at the local kitchen shop ~ $2 ~ and thought, what the heck, that would be a good way to check one out.

Well, I gotta say, it's probably the sharpest knife in my drawer.  (Of course, I'm not that good at honing my knives so maybe that says more about me than my knives......)

So, here's what it looks like:



and, YES, that is my bandaged thumb that I very easily sliced into when I was working in the kitchen this morning.......

LOL

I have one ceramic knife - a Kyocera. I am not that thrilled with them. Yes, it is sharp, but no sharper than my Global knives. I paid a lot more than $2 for a chef's knife. What I don't like is that if they get banged or dropped, they can chip or shatter. They are as delicate as glass. I chipped my Kyocera, how, I don't know but it had a sizable chunk missing off the edge. Fortunately, the place where they sharpen and repair them is local so I sent it back to them and they either repaired it or replaced it for $10. Funny, I had to ship it to them even though they are two miles away. When I got the knife back, I put it in a knife sheath and haven't touched it since. At $2 that is a throw away price so if I trashed one I wouldn't cry.
