The functional advantage would be looking like a complete badass. 8-)

I have used a few of the cheap, colorful, coated knives in my time cooking and didn't really notice much of a benefit. Definitely not as nonstick as e.g. the white #1 Goko's finish, but doubtless cheaper to apply industrially.

I was definitely thinking along the lines of looks on this one. A good knife shouldn't need any type of fancy coating to make it work right. My only concern would be hampering performance with a coating. Would be a cool way to have a custom set too.

I think most of you are missing the point.

We are talking about a custom graphic being applied to the knife to make it truly unique.

We are discussing the consequences of a coating over the blade.

But the desire is for aesthetics not performance gains.
