What are the best ceramic knives?
There are not many knife makers using ceramics to begin with.
Most notable are Boker(Germany) and Kyocera(Japan). They have been experimenting with ceramics fora while and some of the results are good.
Boker makes traditional folding knives and kitchen knives using ceramics, while Kyocera makes kitchen knives and peelers using ceramics.
One could say those two are the leaders today.
While ceramics does offer greater wear resistance and better edge holding compared to steel on soft materials, it is excessively chipping prone even at home kitchen, and in the end it dulls considerably faster than its theoretical properties suggest, primarily from chipping.

It depends on what type of cooking or purpose you are going to put the knives to. Simply for superior durability and sharpness, you will not find knives as fine as brands such as Messermeister or Henckels. Ceramic knives can be lightweight and efficient, but just not up to the same tasks as a good German knife.
Hi. This is Sandra. Thank you for asking exact question because most of the people ask "how to sharpen a knife" The problem of the question is, there are many kinds of knives we are using like kitchen serrated pocket hunting Boning paring Chef's carving Santoku cleavers utility Japanese Tomato knives and so on. These kind of knives aren't for only one kind of sharpener. For sharpening a serrated knife, you should use sharpening stone…
The very first knife was likely a sharp bit of rock. Since then we added handles, changed blades to metal, changed metals several times, made folding knives, knives with more than one blade, combined knives with tools (Swiss Army Knives. Leatherman), made knives to go on guns (bayonets) made REALLY big knives (swords) and made electric knives (electric carving knives) Some knives are now made with blades that are ceramic- a form of stone. Hey…
The knife cannot traced back to a single inventor, it has existed as long as man has. Early man used primitive "knives" such as sharp stones and from that it eventually evolved to the use of bronze, copper, steel, (metals) to today's ceramic knives. Every civilization has it's variations of knives and thus the knife cannot be traced to a sole inventor.
Video: How do you sharpen knives? Sharpening Knives To sharpen a good quality steel knife that is new, use high quality (diamond if you can afford it) knife sharpening steel. A few strokes every time before you use it and if you are doing a lot of cutting, during use, will keep the knife razor sharp. If the knife is very dull, a carpenter's sharpening flat stone is very good at reviving the knife's edge…
Determining the "best" kitchen knives is a matter of personal opinion. Some people prefer to define "best" in reference to the weight and feel of the knives, while others focus on the sharpness, and other still focus on the longevity of the tool. Going to a specialty kitchen tools store is a good place to start a search.
Many things can go over ceramic with ease, but the "best" option is one which works in the room you're doing. For example, laminate flooring is most forgiving of the unevenness (groutlines) of ceramic tile and easiest to install - but I would not put laminate in a bathroom (it's not moisture resistant). For a bathroom, the best option over ceramic is sheet vinyl. Be sure to use leveling compound to smooth grout lines even…
