AverageThis was my first purchase of Ceramic Knives. I got them at a clearance outlet for cheaper than the price listed here. I only went ceramic because I had heard of how much better they were at keeping an edge. After only a few uses, all the knives went dull. I expect better from this company. You get a 3 for design and color, but you could have a 5 if the ceramic they were made of was of higher quality. I guess that's why you don't make em anymore.
