Ceramic knives.. whether Kyocera or not.. tell me what happens if you drop it .... not to the floor...maybe just drop it "lightly" onto the wash basin.... will break or crack or not?
It doesn't break that easily, but tge edge dings easily if you hit it at something hard. The plus about ceramic is it does stay sharp a looooong time and is very clean/easy to clean.

no issue unless your total invoice is GST chargeable..

ha.. i went to ICA couple of weeks ago to collect my spyderco Caly damascus... now total chargeable for GST is inclusive of shipping charges and insurance charges.
so...knife cost + shipping + insurance must be less than $400 to avoid GST.

Yup. This has been the practice all the while I had purchased online. not sure if it was different before. Sometimes what I do is if the shipping is cheaper to split into 2 shipments, I split.. if not just pay GST..

Talking XMAS 2012 gift log

what are you getting for Xmas 2012 and does it include a sharp thing or two?

how about sharing....

Let's start. I've already gotten mine...a maker told me that he would make me something in 2013, after 4 years of waiting. And I got myself a leatherman MUT recently - no point in waiting until a week before XMAS

Department stores - Isetan, Takashimaya etc. Kyocera is the most well known brand.

I doubt it can cut bone. Never tried.

Ni, it will chip. No frozen meats either. The downside to hardness is brittleness. If you want to cur bone, buy a CCK chopper
