I've used ceramic knives for a couple of years now. Starting with the less expensive kinds. These are my first Kyocera knives and they are fantastic. The blunted ends prevent one of the major ceramic knife no-nos, twisting the blade. I have done this in the past and suffered the consequences of a broken tip. These are the sharpest knives I've ever had, including custom made steel blades.
I only bought this set to round up my purchase to get free shipping, because it was on my list anyway. It was shipped separately from the rest of my order and I still haven't received it. I believe it is being delivered via Galapagos Tortoise and is somewhere between Utah and Wisconsin. The items might be pretty decent if they ever get here. I sincerely hop that I will not be too old to stand at the kitchen counter and peel vegetables by then.
When I ordered this knife I was sceptical about its resilience but been a month now and so far its held up to be extremely sharp. The blade cuts through chicken bones quite well without any bending or distortion of the blade's integrity.
As someone that cooks for a living I give this set high marks. Is it comparable to far more expensive professional grade knives? Absolutely not! But the quality is far better than the 90%+ knives that the average consumer owns. I actually bought this set to carry with me when I travel. I frequently stay places that have kitchens. Almost always the cutlery at these places are a joke. Understandably if these places provided high quality cutlery, it would "disappear" or be destroyed. At the price of this set the only embarrassing part is the tattoo graphics on the blade covers. The quality of the knives and covers as well as the weight are an extreme bargain for the price charged. Excellent value for the price.
