Ceramic knives made by Victorinox and Kyocera receive good reviews from publications such as Good Housekeeping. Users describe these knives as sharp, lightweight and easy to handle.
Both Victorinox and Kyocera offer many different models of ceramic knives. Kyocera has the largest selection, with knives that range in blade size from a 3-inch paring knife to an 8-inch sashimi knife. Other styles include an 8-inch chef's knife and a 7-inch serrated bread knife.
Many cooks use ceramic knives to thinly and cleanly slice fruits, vegetables, and boneless fish and meat. They recommend metal knives for more heavy-duty cutting jobs, such as carving and deboning meat, cutting frozen foods and slicing cheese.
