Anyone used Ultem knives?

This morning BakingBites has an entry about a cake knife made from a new material that's supposed to be particularly non-stick. As a result of that property plus its generous supportive shape Weston is recommending it for attractive, clean serving. Be still my heart!

I did a little research and found that cutting gummy cheeses was it's first culinary application. In fact, there are several shapes of blades, serrated and non-serrated.

I'm sorely tempted. If anyone has any experience to share on how this material holds an edge, how it's sharpened and what it's actually like in practical application, I'd really appreciate it. I am trying to keep my anxious little fingers from ordering a couple until I get more info on how wise a purchase this would be in reality since it sounds like such a dream.

I did a little more research and the Bakers' Catalogue from KIng Arthur has a good number of very positive reviews for a knife fabricated from Ultem. They just don't have any info about long-term use.
