  • Ceramic knife

    OK you kitchen chemists ....any of you using a ceramic knife?
    I have the Jaccard 6" serrated bread knife.
    It cuts so thin I have been using the same tomato for four days...

    there are many ceramic knives out there today from Harbor Freight to the
    "as seen on TV" types.

    I came across Jaccard by accident in researching ceramic knives
    The 6 inch serrated blade also cuts a London broil thin and like butter!!!!

    The other day though the blade fell out of the handle! Bummer!!! and I was slicing hard boiled eggs
    without the shells!

    I spoke to Jaccard and explained what happened..they said no problem send the knife back
    with 5 dollars for shipping and we will send you a new one! man! what a great warranty!

    I just ordered two more for Christmas gifts for a few family members that cook.

    I have noticed prices have gone up [surprise] I paid about $33.00 for the knife in April of this year and today
    the best price I've found is at Cutlery and more.com for $35.00
    Forget E-bay as they are expensive there $49.00-$79.00

    The Jaccard knives come with an included sheath to keep the blade safe and is well made..

    Oh it will cut human skin quickly and cleanly if you're not careful ha ha

    I really like the serrated edge compared to those with smooth edges although I also have the Jaccard
    8" chef knife. slicing turkey or prime rib is also smooth and the slices are clean.

    I have no monetary interest in Jaccard or any other ceramic knife manufacturer!

    So now what do I do with my Chicago cutlery?

    Been there, done that?

    I had a tactical folding knife with a ceramic blade and carbon fiber handles. Light, thin, and very easy to wound one's self with. About $90. Quickly discovered that durability wasn't among its attributes. Might have to try one for the kitchen though.

        Complaints of the blade being brittle and prone to shattering have kept me from purchasing. Since I purchased a 1x30 bench sander and specialty belts I have no problem putting a razor sharp edge on just about any blade in no time. Don't throw away your knives, sharpen them.

          I'll tell you what though, those ceramic knives are razor sharp and stay that way for a very long time. So do the pieces

            Good warning I am forever breaking drinking glasses that are left on our kitchen counter. I bump my elbow into them and they shatter the tile floor. My wife is always pulling shards of glass out of her feet. I do my best to sweep up and vacuum but she always finds the ones that got away.

                I don't own one but I believe Boker made some of the first ceramics. Here's a good video showcasing one and giving some useful info. Like the man says, very good for slicing but not for prying or hard work.

                  It would not be my first choice for rugged dependability and if you break it you are up the creek so to speak. for survival I would go with steel and a diamond hone

                      We are not allowed to carry knives in public as we have this tendency to kill each other as you do with guns

                          I carry a strong folding knife all the time except when sleeping, when I sleep it is under my pillow! A good folding knife is not just for self defense, I t could save you or someone else trapped by a faulty seatbelt. I also carry a good LED flashlight all the time and a small butane lighter.
