Pros:
Since hobby is cooking, I know the value of a very sharp blade. They are not only easier to use, but safer as well. I have steel slicing knife that I bought over 20 years ago that I still have, sharpen about once a year, and use a steel on it after every use. I have always wanted a large ceramic chef's blade but they were always out of my price range. Since I have received this one, I've used it to dice onions, slice tomatoes (which I could only do well with my slicing knife after a good going over with a steel
Cons:
As with all ceramic knives are prone to breakage if mistreated, but then again, everyone in my home has been warned not to mistreat my good steel knives either. After use I always go over them with a steel a PUT THEM IN MY BLOCK COMPLETELY DRY ! Okay, I'm a bit anal.
Other:
Bottomline:
I like the black color (it doesn't stain), looks a little Darth Vader-ish (a pllus with me) Cuts like a 7 inch long Gillette stainless steel razor., and with careful use should last a while. I'm buying more, and other sizes as well.
