  • Best thing I have ever bought from DX

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Cheap - You won't be able to find cheaper. This knife can't be sharpened by traditional methods, but by the time it finally goes blunt you can buy another one
    Sharp - Unbelievably. Cut and slice anything with ease.
    Long lasting - These are made with ceramic, which is harder than Steel. It will last you ages.

    Cons:

    "Fragile" - Ceramic knives are notorious for being brittle. You can't use it to cut bone or frozen food. You can't flex the blade. But that isn't a problem for me, and if you take good care for it, it won't be a problem for you.

    OtherThoughts:

    I keep this knife by itself in my display cabinet to avoid damage. I wash it by itself immediately after use. I expect that if you do the same you will have no problems.
    On a humourless note, I lost about 250mL of blood using this knife. I was showing my new blade off to a friend, slicing across an onion, when the blade slipped and cut of the top of my left thumb, a few millimetres about the nail. It is about halfway healed now :D. Now I am a little afraid to use it.

    Bottomline:

    If you are annoyed by blunt knives when cutting up food, don't hesitate to buy thing product.
