Cutting it pretty close

I bought a geek toy I've wanted for a while now - it has elements of cookery AND geekery and is therefore irresistible: a ceramic santoku knife. (Wikipedia on ceramic knives.)

While it's a specialist toy tool, useful for slicing or cutting only... it is very very good at slicing and cutting.

Check out this cross-section of a local hot-house tomato:

It does, indeed, cut pretty close.
