Please try to keep up with all the posts S-cat.
Wot, ScardyCat has been so busy practising the Zepp bend that he missed that post
Scardy, Kyocera seem to have discontinued making pocket knives. I found a few currently for sale
only in limited quantities on Amazon UK, but nowhere else.
I consider ceramic knives a specialty item - I reach for mine usually only when I need a super sharp blade and a few times in emergencies it has been invaluable. Because it is so small and lightweight, it is also the knife I always carry with me going ashore.
I am not a huge fan of ceramic, mainly because of the difficulty sharpening it, but also because it is brittle. Has anyone here had any success with the electric
diamond sharpeners or using diamond whetstones? Ceramic shouldn't need sharpening often, but it seems to be a real PITA when it does. The ceramic Kyocera used was fired again at a high temp, apparently making it more durable than standard ceramic, but probably making it even harder to sharpen.
My very basic Myerchin with a marlin spike (Titanium Crew Rigging
Knife) gets constant use even though it is not nearly as sharp
