Chef Knives Part 4

I recently had a client ask me about the new ceramic knives, and to be totally honest I had no idea what she was talking about, so of course the first thing I did was research and call all my friends to ask them. The client was saying she heard it was the strongest and sharpest knife ever, but the kicker was she said it never needed to be sharpened. I immediately thought “yea, right.”ceramic-chef-knife

So, I went on line to Google it, I can say it’s a very pretty knife. They are made out of Zirconia, which is suppose to be the second hardest material to diamonds. It is stated that it is very sharp and holds an edge longer than any other Chef Knife.  It has a very dense blade with few pores, which means it cuts down on cross contamination.

It is brittle and thin and tends to chip and any culinary gadget that chips is not a good kitchen choice, several other people agreed on

Also it was mentioned that you need a special sharpener to sharpen it, so I guess it does need to get sharpened after all.

I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on your knives.
