I am looking for a new knife for work just a general chefs knife for everyday use anyone any suggestions? Something sturdy but light and easy to keep sharp..not really got a budget as long as it's not crazy expensive.

Ming Tsai seems to prefer ceramic blades for some reason; he is a professional chef.
It's true! At the beginning of this episode he shows all his knives. Then we see morimoto's knives :D

It's not all he uses, and I wouldn't say that it's appropriate as your main all purpose chefs knife. Your main knife is used the most and needs to be maintained the most. As a professional, what are you going to do with a ceramic chefs knife when it needs sharpening or repair? Send it out for sharpening and get it back a week later? In the meantime, you're using...
... and at some point we see Morimoto-san using Ming's ceramic knife. Neither appear to be knife bigots. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

But I totally agree that a ceramic knife makes a poor choice as a primary blade or daily workhorse.
