Ceramic blades are beautiful and the idea that you can cut so well with ceramic is wonderful. There are such beautiful kitchen knives made with a ceramic blade as well. I think it’s the colour, the texture of the ceramic that makes it slightly magical vs a regular metal blade. Last week we found the Slice “cutters” via Notcot. The shapes of the cutters that Karim Rashid designed just don’t do it for me. The Precision Cutter, the simple pencil like cutter is ok. The rest just seems very un-elegant. Which is too bad when you think that the ceramic blade itself is so elegant and can be so small, doesn’t become dull nearly as fast as metal because it is so much harder. Am a fan of the idea just not the design.
To try them out you can purchase them at the Slice website as well as Unica Home.
