***Please, no stupid comments about smuggling these on planes***

I've ordered one of these, partly just to see what they're like, partly because the reviews seem to suggest they keep an extremely keen blade for ages.

I've paid something like £3.40 at the exchange rate from a day or two ago.

Still roughly the same price, delivered.

May be a good deal for the culinarists on here........

sorry, but legislation I have just checked disagrees with you, because this is clearly a kitchen knife and is therefore allowed.
#4
How can you sharpen these when they do go blunt?
Would the same methods used for metal blades work?
#5
special sharpeners required apparently, though by all accounts they are sharp for a very long time.

google or bing it maybe?
#6
It seems to be Flick knives that are illegal to import.

Not quite. The idea behind sharpening is you use something harder than the knife to sharpen it. With steel you use a harder steel or ceramics. With ceramic you have to turn to things like diamond (seriously).

So yeah, the maintenance price can be higher but you don't have to do it as often. Probably worth it, IMO.

Rupz, I have no idea - all the info I have is what is available on the website.

However, there are also a range of other knives available in different sizes and styles. I just chose this one because it is mega cheap and also looks really cool with the dark blade....

A wood chisel diamond sharpener would do the trick.

@ rups- imagine its made from just ceramic kitchen tile lol
#22
i bought a red handle 6" one, its awesome. arrived no problems too
#23
Wouldn't want to drop it on a tile floor though.
I've wanted to try a ceramic for a while now after hearing of their performance. Have a look at Kyocera knives for instance. Different league maybe, but I'm having one of these. Nice spot OP, cheers!

i am a materials scientist and therefore "ceramic" does give an accurate description.

I bought and used DX ceramics before, they are great. Deadly sharp.
#26
HOT!! At £3.50, who could possibly find fault with that!

Might be stating the obvious here but ceramic knives are said to be sharper than steel
#30
Ordered 2 - thanks :o)
#31
Due to the brittle nature of ceramic they are often coated with.... any idea rupz ?
#32
Thank you, going to try one - if I can't sharpen it, so what, its only £3.50!

Get outta town... I'm a material girl..

.. and we are living in a material world don't ya know?!?

Hmmm-hmm..
#34
these DX ceramic knives usually contain a block of metal in the handle to stop people from taking them on a plane...so they're definitely legal. DX goods are quite often poundland quality and as youre importing them they can bypass European quality standards

I'm not sure use something like this them to prepare food, especially at this low price.

I would be more inclined to spend a fraction more and get the bigger blade http://www.dealextreme.com/p/chic-chefs-horizontal-ceramic-knife-28782
#36
anyone got a real reason why you would need this?
#37
worth pointing out this website sells fakes as seen under new era hat review:

'-Similar to an original '
'99.99999% like the original New Era cap. (It's a perfect replica)'

therefore i have voted cold as i doubt the quality

sorry
#38
There was a good piece about the manufacture of the Kyocera knives on the Robert Llewellyn Channel 5 show'How Do They Do It?' Series 4 - Episode 2, here http://www.five.tv/shows/how-do-they-do-it/episodes/episode-2-28 but sadly not available

Mineral mined in Australia, knives hand sharpened in Japan, & metal strip inserted to give x-ray visibility, etc .... worth a watch if it reappears.

What's the point of a kitchen knife you can't use to prepare food?

To cut vegetables? you know... the kind of thing you would usually use a kitchen knife for?
