When I was in Germany last year a friend had girls night we had wine and cheese and she had a ceramic knife it is all the rage.
Wusthof knives are the best and very sharp and last forever, but be careful you can cut your self.
It has been wonderfully crazy here, family from Texas and NY. I just wish it was cooler it has been 100 and so so humid. I brought myself a cooling scarf for my neck from Scheels. You wet it- snap it and put it around your neck - it does cool you down.
