Ceramic Knives

Has anyone bought or used the Kyocera ceramic knives?

They say they're harder than any steel and will hold a sharper edge longer.

My wife uses a paring knife. She says it's sharp and likes it. However, it's expensive ($30), is brittle and will break if dropped on a hard surface and has to be sent to the mfg to be re-sharpened. Also must be stored in a safe manor.
That's why she has one and I don't.

They can break if dropped and if you use them trimming around bones they can be chipped. Many have tried to use them for BBQ and most I know go away from them quickly.
