    Ceramic knife blades

    Does anyway have any experience with a ceramic bladed stalking knife?
    How does it hold its edge and ease of sharpening etc ?

    Development continues.

    Boker have tried then in field knives, but without great take up thus far.

    They will hold a great edge, but sharpening tends to be a specialist thing. Kitchen knives have seen some take up.

    Biggest issue is fragility - very easy to break the blade. I have tried one from a Japanese maker - provided free for test, no idea what cost was. Lasted two outings. Drew it after a rough ride in the back of an argo ( on my belt ) and found blade to three pieces.

    Not techy enough to know if that's ultimately a solvable issue.

    I had read that the blades could be quite fragile due to the hardness of the material.
    Maybe not such a good idea out with the kitchen arena then.

    Brilliant on flesh, but as soon as you hit a bone its proper ****ed, I have one, knackered it skinning, sent it back to Boker, they resharpened for free, but as razor like as they are they are no good in the field, I love techy stuff, but I could not recommend them

    I can only echo what has already been said really. I have a really nice Japanese ceramic kitchen knife that I was given as a gift. It's razor sharp and beautiful to use, but very brittle. I wouldn't dream of trying to use it in the field.

    great for cutting jerky strips on a craft cutting board ,talk of a knife through butter, and thats it i wouldnt want to give it a real work out,my wife would never let it rest if i put a snip in it ,so i dont know how fragile it is ,though it feels dead in the hand if that the way to put it
