Well actually I can not take credit, my wife was using ceramic knife
from Harbor Frieght to cut an apple. She was cutting on a small corel
plate it broke, so if you have trouble cutting glass with the typical
glass cutter.

I got three knives for about $26 before tax. They are good knives.

Many years ago I had placed one of those red clay flower pots on a
Corelle dinner plate. I don't recall why, but at some point I decided to
spin the pot on the plate, perhaps to look at a different side of the
plant.

One small turn, a screech was heard and the plate exploded. It sent
ridiculously thin curved slivers flying about 3 feet in all directions.
Ah, but it wasn't done yet. For the next 15 minutes or so, the part
of the plate that remained kept making these little "clink" sounds
as more skinny curved shards continued to break off of the edge
of the plate and drop to the table.

Obviously, I hit the resonant frequency of the plate which caused
the initial explosion. The more amazing thing, at least to me, was
the internal stresses that remained, causing continued, yet gentler
*curved* damage. It was pretty freaky.

That sounds like fun... I wonder if anyone will be mad if I attempt to
sacrifice a dinner plate. Funny, I thought those Corelle plates were
supposed to be near-indestructible.

Near is not totally. In the 45 years or so that I've been using
Corelle I think I've managed to break half a dozen Corelle dishes.

After many years, Corel gets very brittle and will shatter into a
kabillion very small shards with only a small impact. It is tempered
glass and acts like it. As you suspect, your flower pot probably
scratched it, starting its disintegration.

Is a kabillion more than a Brazilian?

It depends on the bra size.

+1 on the Harbor Freight ceramic knives. I bought one of the paring
knives about 5 or 6 years ago and only recently was my wife able to nick
the edge. She's terrible with knives and gets ****ed a me when I
sharpen them. I try to explain but. . .

Take a regular dinner place, "China" and the base ring is unglazed. Got
a dull knife? Run a couple of passes at the right angle with each side
of the blade and it's dull no more.
