Item: Kyocera Ceramic Chefs Knife
Overall Impression: Lightweight and easy to care for. Excels at chopping hard vegetables and herbs.
The idea of a knife that stays razor-sharp for months — even years! — has a lot of appeal to me as a home cook whose knives seem to be in constant need of honing and resharpening. But a chefs knife has to wear a lot of hats in the kitchen, and I've always wondered how a lightweight, brittle ceramic blade would hold up when put to the test.
