Re: Ceramic Knife
Airport security: Shhh! Don't tell anyone, any paleolithic cutting tool will pass airport security. And if you get caught, you get free room and board and medical care for an easy five years. Or maybe, not such an easy five years.
In the kitchen, I've used a ceramic (one paring, one chef's) knife for about a year now, two different brand names. They do seem to stay sharp but not quite as sharp as a fine edge on a good metal blade. No problem with the cutting boards (delrin or similar) holding up. I picked up the first one because it was on sale while I was looking for a particular size/profile that somehow I'd never gotten, for vegetable dicing mainly.
