I've messed around with them. They are really only for cutting food. If you try to use it for the other random things "we" use knives for it might not work out too well.

ceramic blades will discolor easially. while they will stay sharp indefinatally they can shatter if dropped or of they are struck by something hard (like a stone or floor tile). and you cannot pry with them. they cannot flex like a steel knife, they shatter instead.

what dmac said. they're meant for cutting food or other soft things on a soft surface (like a synthetic cutting mat). They're prone to chipping when knocked against hard objects, if not out right cracking or breaking. So they're basically shit for carrying around in your pocket or pack as a general purpose knife.

90 percent of the time i personally believe ceramic knives are a bad purchase. I cook for a living and literally every person I know who has brough one into the kitchen has dropped it, chipped it or broke broke the tip. Stick with metal
