Yeah, they hold the edge much longer than a steel knife, but I have several dislikes with them.
Higher friction is one, the brittleness is another. You really can't do this[^] with a ceramic knife.

The brittleness also leads to another problem as far as I'm concerned, most ceramic knives have a very high edge angle of up to forty degrees to compensate for the brittleness which makes them less... well, not less sharp, but rather... they simply don't cut as well's a knife with a 10-15 degree edge. You'd know what I mean when you cut a tomato and the chopping board remains dry.

So they really are each others opposites with different strong points.

That said, I really should buy my wife a ceramic knife of her own.
