Ceramic Chef Knives-benefits are more than you think. When you think of ceramic you think of pottery or tiles and you visualize the same thing for the knives. Ceramic knives are made of a very hard and tough zirconium dioxide ceramic and fired at an intense heat. The blade is sharpened on a grinding wheel that is coated in a diamond-dust, till razor sharp.
On the scale of mineral hardness Zirconia is 8.5 while a normal steel is 4.5, hardened steel is between 7.5 to 8 and the diamond is a 10. The hardness of the knife means that it stays sharp for a lot longer than normal knives.
Zirconium dioxide Advantages:
Excellent wear properties
Stable flexural strength
Very fine particle size

Sharon Franke from Good Housekeeping already had a Victorinox ceramic knife and had this to say about Ceramic Chef Knives-Benefits “That it was ‘fun’ to work with. She tests cooking equipment from spoons to high end electric equipment and says the knife is lightweight, sharp, smooth and thin, that made it glide through food.
The ceramic chef knife is durable. The weight is well distributed which gives you more control over the knife. They are impervious to rust and specialized tools for the cutting and peeling of vegetables and fruit especially soft fruit such as figs.
Because of their sharpness and because they are less porous than steel they do not have the corrosion reaction steel knives have. The are not affected by substances such as salts, acids and juices and therefore do not change the taste of foods.
The ceramic chef knife keeps its sharpness for longer than metal knives and thus last longer. Frequent sharping of knives reduce the size over time and can cause chips if the metal is too thin. Steel knives tend show their age from long term use, the ceramic chef knives however keep their good appearance for their live time.
