A sure thing
? Sure to be fragile, not very sharp out of the box and impossible to get really sharp. Any decent knife, forged, stamped or cut out, can be made sharper than any ceramic I've seen.
Obviously it's a crappy deal if a manufacturer is dishonest about their products, but bear in mind that forged knives aren't inherently better than non-forged knives by virtue of being forged. Many of the best Japanese knives aren't drop-forged in the sense you think of when you think of a Wusthof or Henckels. Yet I think they're vastly superior to those forged Germans.
