The way it usually goes with knives is that they either cost a lot or they suck. (Note: both varieties seem to be equally capable of gashing through my finger such that I require stitches and a tetanus shot.) CeramiPro's Phantom Series of cutting implements takes a stab at defying the either/or constraints with knives so reasonable and razor sharp that the only one crying will be the onion as it pleads to live out its life intact. The collection's black-on-black coloration doesn't hurt either.

Zirconia, an advance ceramic, comprises CeramiPro blades. That naturally occurring compound falls just after diamond and myself on the Moh scale of hardness. Once harvested and shaped, the knives undergo a heat-and-pressure treatment that further hardens them, and allows for sharpening to the fine points we see sparkling before us. Zirconia's natural properties and CeramiPro's conditioning process also keep the blades sharp for around 10 times longer than kitchen knives made of other materials.

CeramiPro knives also weigh about half that of comparable steel knives. Combined with their balanced design, this makes them easier to handle, which in turn lessens fatigue and increases efficiency and safety when cutting for extended periods, or when cutting something that's an enormous pain in the ass, such as 15 tomatoes and 5 pounds of chicken thighs.

The Phantom series includes a 4" paring knife, 5" utility knife, 6" santoku, and 8" chef knife, each purchasable separately, or as a set.
