SOME INFORMATION ON CERAMIC KNIVES FROM EUGENE SOLOMONIK:
From all my experience talking with both retailers and customers, I've noticed that the biggest deterrent to buying a ceramic knife is the fact that it is fragile. That's the obvious downside to having an extremely sharp knife that doesn't need sharpening. And I never argue they ARE easier to break than traditional steel counterparts.
We've put our Zayka ceramic knives to a number of drop tests on kitchen tile, the worst thing that happens is the tip breaks off. Some manufacturers know that and purposefully round off the end to prevent warranty claims.
We leave ours pointy and give buyers specific instructions regarding taking care of their knife. The sharp end allows for more precision tasks, such as separating the fat from a delicate steak.
Even with our rigorous testing, we've never attempted anything like the stunts that Kim Breed pulled. Kim is a retired Special Forces veteran who happens to review knives for one of the leading publications, Blade Magazine.
I sent him our Spartan model for an article and could not believe my eyes once it was published in the April 2010 issue.
The thought of putting a ceramic blade through such arduous tasks never even crossed my mind! I have no idea how these tests came to fruition, but I'm glad they did.
