This knife, like all of Kyocera's ceramic knives, is good looking and has a terrific sharp edge. Like the rest of their plastic handled series, the grip is contoured to be thinner at the front and back and wider in the middle. The grip feels comfortable in the hand, and provides for good positive control over the blade.
In general size, this is very similar to the Kyocera 5" utility knife in this series (which is an excellent general kitchen knife). However, the blade is not as tall as the unserrated knife, and this one has a micro-serrated edge. The size and shape make this blade better suited for slicing than chopping, but for slicing vegetables, it is very effective.
The serrations on the blade are barely visible, but they have a definite effect when cutting. Despite being tiny, the serrations let the blade 'grip' what you cut more effectively. This makes slicing at angles much easier, especially on food with a smooth skin, such as tomatoes. The knife is also decent for bread, certainly better than an unserrated knife, but not as quite as good as a knife with a deeply serrated edge.
Although the serrated edge probably means that the blade will be difficult to sharpen, the ceramic isn't expected to need sharpening for a long time. Between the ceramic composition of the blade and the plastic handle, this knife requires very little care other than basic washing.
This knife is available with either a white or black blade (I actually have the black-bladed version), both with a black handle.
While this may not be as good a universal utility knife as the unserrated version, or as good for chopping as a larger blade, this knife makes a great vegetable slicer and a terrific addition to the a set of kitchen knives.
