Modern ceramic technology has brought us insulation for the NASA Space Shuttle, advanced protective body armor, incredible sharpening media and now, state-of-the-art knife blades.
Long heralded for its light weight, corrosion resistance (rust proof) and incredibly durable nature, technical ceramic is a modern blade marvel. Ceramic blades, due to their exceptional hardness, will retain a sharp edge at least 10 times longer than normal blade steel. This provides the user with a superior cutting tool that will not require sharpening for a long time.
