    Talk about rattling the cage. Has to be a prank. Almost laughable, no is laughable

    Decent effort on the troll. 7.5/10

    I do have a ceramic knife though. Wanted to put a bread knife in my kit so I picked up this beauty:

    You know it's got to be a gem if Williams Sonoma is pitching it for 19.95.

    To answer the question even if it is a troll, I got a couple of ceramic knives from Ikea and they are awful. The geometry is pathetic, even if the knife were razor sharp it would still suck at cutting

    Sorry, guys, if i asked sth off-topic. I just wanted to get your opinion on it. But believe it or not, I have been using myself and they are ok,especially when the price is under $30. better than wal-mart or ikea quality for sure. Maybe you judge it from chef point of view?

    This is for real and not a troll? Ceramic knives are healthier?

    I have a 5 inch petty that my six year old uses, its fine for children to learn on. it has a blunt tip and quite light, easy to grip. I might actually try that chocera nakiri style as the girls want to push cut everything.

    You can apparently convex sharpen them pretty easily used black wet/dry sand paper and a mouse pad. One of the problems with ceramic is that there's no burr so you have to be very precise and consistent with your angles, but the convex technique compensates for this a bit. It also creates a stronger edge. I personally have no need / use for a ceramic kitchen knife (nor do I imagine most of the folks here do). But, I understand why there is a market for them and why, I'm sure, they sell very well at walmart.
