Beautiful, if handled carefully

I have a significant variety of the Zen range, spending nearly $1400 for a good number of dinner plates, appetizer and side plates. It was a big investment. The range is particularly elegant, but it gets perilous when they are stacked. Another reviewer wrote that they put a lace paper between the plates. A good idea. I have a number that have scratched where the unglazed bottom rubs on the surface. And there has been the odd knife mark. I was disappointed to find they scratch so easily. Consequently they are relegated to coming out only for important events and can't be used at all as elegant dinnerware. I would use your good judgment whether to buy them or not.
Pros: elegant, timeless
Cons: delicate, easily scratched, underside not glazed

Different experience
I have a full set of the Zen porcelain in all the different sizes and shapes. One of the dinner plates seemed a little bit warped - nothing major. Otherwise, I have had no problems with mine. I haven't had any scratches from stacking on top of each other nor have I had any marks from knives. This is my every day dishes, and I have been using them for 7 years. Perhaps they have lowered their standards but mine still look great.
