First like everyone says, when you get it, it is razor sharp. So incredibly sharp it will shave the hair off your arm. However some are saying it gets dull in a few months and there is no way to sharpen it. Here is where I want to tell everyone. Don't put it in the dishwasher!! It's supposed to be common knowledge not to put any of your good knifes in the dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent contains hard polishing particles which will take an edge off any good knife, metal or ceramic. I guess these guys who complain are just constantly resharpening their metal knives every couple weeks and never realize the reason they get dull is the dishwasher. It is true, you can not sharpen this knife, so don't put it in the dishwasher. Also, the blade chips easy if amateur cooks bang it against something harder than ceramic like a granite counter top. Just use this knife like any expensive high quality knife and use a wood or plastic HDPE type cutting board and you won't chip your edge.
The design feature I like most about this knife compared to other ceramic knives is the physical shape. The way the cutting edge extends far below the handle. This way you're not getting your knuckles in the food when you chop. Some complain that the blade breaks off because the whole blade width is not up in the handle. I've had no problem with this. The area where the blade connects to the handle is very thick. I imagine it would take a lot of force to break it off, the solution is just don't over-stress the knife. If it's not cutting don't force it. The same way you would do with any high quality knife.
This is a great price for a very high quality knife. I think more people just need to understand how to properly care for a good quality knife.
I've put it in the dishwasher, but after reading one of the comments about DW soap I will only hand wash after this.
