Chef’s Foundry P600 Ceramic Knife Set with Blade covers
The 3 piece set comes with a 4″, 6″, and 8″ chef’s knives. Each blade does come with its own cover to protect it and you! Because there is no doubt these are sharp. The blades are made of a zirconium ceramic which is the hardest material known to man other than diamond. They are 10 times harder and sharper than stainless steel, but a fraction of the weight! They are so lightweight! The handles are sturdy and easy to grip.
These knives are almost scary sharp, so be sure to handle them carefully. Because they are so lightweight, it can make them a bit too easy to handle and it’s easy to become careless. But oh man, do these babies cut, slice, chop, and dice! Their precise edge makes thinly slicing even tricky things like tomatoes a breeze. It feels like there is almost zero resistance. I get paranoid about ceramic blades because while strong, they can be brittle if hit the wrong way. I always think I might chip them, or snap the blade if they are hit along it. However, these have held up great! Zero chips and my kids dropped ceramic bowls on top of the blade in the sink and it didn’t make a dent. They just feel nice to use! Plus, they clean up super quick and easy.
They do recommend that you store your knives in a wood block to maintain the blades longer. They also recommend handwashing to extend their lifespan. It is recommended that you do not try to cut through any steel cans (tempting though it may be to “test” them!) nor anything frozen solid. I was able to slice through the middle of chicken breasts that were defrosted but still frozen in the middle, however, no problem. I could turn around and cut up veggies right after (after washing first of course!)
If you have a chef or foodie in your life, you cannot beat these knives in the kitchen! They are sharp and, so far, have stayed sharp! Chef’s Foundry even offers a 30 day Sharpness Guarantee! So there is really no reason not to try them. This could make your holiday food prep so much easier! I use them for everything from meats, to fruits and veggies, and cheese. Refrigerated cheese blocks can be the bane of my existence when I’m trying to slice them, even with my nice $300 set of stainless steel knives. No problem for these ceramic ones! I could not be more pleased!
