bison tools/ceramic knife

I was given a ceramic knife (Kyocera brand) for Christmas last year and I
LOVE it! Yes, it's brittle, and requires attentiveness when using it. For
instance, you wouldn't pry with the tip of it as you might with a regular
knife. I mostly use it to slice soft things like tomatoes and have never
before sliced a tomato with such ease. I don't keep it in the "knife
drawer", but put it away in the box it came in. It's worth the extra
trouble, as are my 2 Bison tools.
