It is just for dense cheeses. The theory behind it is if you cut into a really dense cheese, you could potentially not cut steady and end up cracking the blade while trying to wrench the knife out of the cheese. It's a stress thing.

Personally I wouldn't worry TOO much about it, but it's probably worth noting that I use wire, not my ceramics.
