The best of the chef's ceramic kitchen knives is the Kyocera. Ceramic is a relatively new material to the culinary knife market and they're proving to be a superb kitchen tool. Ceramic products are very durable, they last longer than the steel blades type and they retain sharpness and slice finely. Like most ceramic products, this one won't need re-sharpening as often, which also adds to the longevity of the blade.

The Kontera chef's knife will allow you to chop, dice and slice with ease and won't mar the food in any way. The handle has a good feel to it, nice grip, balanced overall. It will tackle most food stuff within reason and is well worth the price tag. A great all rounder, good for home cooks and professional users.
