First off, these knives are very sharp indeed and if you are the kind of person who does everything in the kitchen in a rush and is constantly cutting your fingers, DO NOT BUY: a ceramic blade is very hard and very sharp and will cut you to the bone before you can say 'knife.'

Second, as they explain in the instruction manual, ceramic blades are hard and unbending, so they can only be used for straight cutting, nothing twisty, so they are not for boning meat or fish or, eg cutting out potato eyes.

So why have a ceramic knife? Well, when you need to cut fruit or acidic veg and not get a reaction from a carbon steel knife, and you want a knife that stays very sharp for a long time, cutting through a raw potato as if it were well cooked, and tomatoes like butter, etc, then a ceramic knife is the one - you will not get that kind of sharpness from a stainless steel knife.

So I have all three kinds of knife in my kitchen: carbon steel, ceramic and stainless steel - for different jobs.

However, when the time comes to resharpen the ceramic knives, you either pay a stonking £50-60 for a specialist sharpening tool, or, since it is apparently a tricky job, you can return them to Kyocera who will do the job for you - at a price, which seems to be falling, so check their website for reasonableness. I do not object to that idea, as home sharpening even of carbon steel can ruin a knife if not done properly.

I have, however, knocked off a star from what is otherwise an excellent buy because I think the handles are not in the same category as the blades. While balance is, to some extent,a personal matter, I found the handles a bit light, so the knives did not 'sit' quite naturally in the hand, and the rough finish on the edge of the moulding join unacceptable for the price. But at the end of the day, they do an amazing job. So they get the 4 stars.

This set of black bladed ceramic knives by Kyocera comes with one 14cm Santoku (for general purpose) and one 7.5cm paring knife. If you've never used a ceramic knife before, they are extremely sharp and will cut you very easily, so great care is recommended when using. The blades are made form Zirconium Oxide, which is second only to diamond on the hardness scale making it an ideal material for a knife blade, and it will stay sharper for longer than a steel knife. However its brittle nature means it can snap and shatter, so it should only be used for particular jobs such as slicing boneless meat and fish, vegetables and fruit; and not for others such as carving, prying and boning. To wash simply rinse with warm water and liquid soap. The knives themselves are very handsome, particularly with the black blade, and would make an ideal gift for anyone who enjoys spending time in the kitchen. On first use I was amazed by how easily they cut through vegetables when compared to a standard steel knife. The weight of the knife alone is enough to cut through say, a pepper, with only a forward and backward motion of the blade. The handles are ergonomically designed and have a high quality feel. They are an absolute joy to use.

And now to price - they are expensive, but in my opinion, worth it. However, if you can wait a couple of weeks for delivery, I would recommend ordering from Amazon.com where they are roughly just over half the price than they are here on Amazon.co.uk. You will have to pay a little extra for P&P, but it still works out to be a lot cheaper.

Ok, I have to admit to being a little disappointed that the photo accompanying these knives is very misleading. I was expecting them to arrive in the display case as pictured rather than the blister pack that they arrived in......
That said, these are without a doubt the sharpest knives that I have ever used. They make light work of even the toughest cuts of meat. They are perfectly balanced and an absolute pleasure to use. Just be sure to count your fingers after use!!

I purchased some of these knives several months ago, and since then they have become my go-to knives for vegetables (and boneless chicken breast). They are very sharp indeed, and have not lost any of their edge, nor chipped for me so far through very careful use. For someone who enjoys cooking and will treat them with care, these make an excellent gift (even to yourself!).

These knives are fantastic. I managed to cut a cherry tomato into 12 slices! Even I was amazed. Well worth the money!

I don't mind paying for quality products in the slightest, £114 plus £10.26 postage and packing for this set of excellent knives is well worth it IMHO. Sometimes if I am dieting and getting into shape I can eat seven times a day so I do a lot of food preparation daily.

*******HOWEVER ******* I went to AMAZON.COM and bought this exact same set and it cost me £53.31 Yes, you read that correctly. £70 cheaper !! Much less than half price than buying it from AMAZON.CO.UK. I have just copied and pasted my order below:

Item(s) Subtotal: GBP 37.61
Shipping & Handling: GBP 6.81
-----
Total before tax: GBP 53.31
Sales Tax: GBP 0.00
Import Fees Deposit GBP 8.89
-----
Total for This Shipment: GBP 53.31

Rip off Britain ??? It certainly seems like it.
I only got them from AMAZON.COM because a reviewer also mentioned how much cheaper it was. I bought them on 07/03/14 and they arrived at my house today 13/03/14. Six days to get here from the U.S.A. !

Now about the knives, well balanced, light, lightsaber like sharpness and they look fantastic to boot. I experimented with my steel knives and both of these Kyoceras with some grapes, bananas and tomatoes. It's like comparing a can of Fosters to Remy Martin Louis XIII. I wish I had bought a set of these years ago. They are truly something special. Also my mum tried them and mentioned how much easier they were to use, she suffers from arthritis and it looks like I will be buying another set for her.

I read many reviews and the only negative thing I found was how easy they can be damaged. Some people have used them for prying and boning - idiots. What did you expect ? People like you shouldn't be allowed anywhere near sharp knives anyway.
