    REVIEWS AND FEEDBACK HAS BEEN GREAT ON THE TALONZ!! GET 'EM HERE OR AT BLADE SHOW TABLE 26M!

    Introducing the TALONZ line of ceramic blade neck/EDC knives designed by knifemaker Jim Eriksen from Dallas, Texas, manufactured by Eagle. TALONZ blades are made of advanced Zirconium Oxide (ZrO) and are a marvel of modern materials science. The result is a blade that is second to hardness only to natural diamond. This extreme hardness means the knife will retain its original sharpness for years of normal use without the need for sharpening. TALONZ knives received an "Excellent" rating from CATRA for edge retention. (Cutlery & Allied Trades Research Assoc. in the United Kingdom)

    Jim Eriksen has been making knives full-time for over 30 years and is a voting member of the Knifemaker's Guild. He is a protege of G.W. Stone, one of the founding Guild members. Jim is considered one of the best blade grinders in the country. He makes everything from art-knives to hard use working/tactical knives being used by professionals all around the world.

    There are two blade styles of TALONZ available. The Drop Point measures 5 1/4" overall with a 2 1/2" blade. The Tanto blade is 5" overall and the blade is 2 1/16". Each is one piece white ceramic construction with black para-cord wrapped grip and lanyard hole with attached lanyard. Has molded sheath with a ball chain. Knife and sheath together weigh less than 2 ounces!

    how brittle are these? I know it's not reasonable to expect them to survive being dropped onto concrete since they are ceramic, but are they more sturdy than a ceramic kitchen knife?

    the beatings will continue until morale improves

    These are made of a thicker stock than you find on most ceramic kitchen knives. Brittle but surprisingly not as fragile as we expected them to be. They have been put through the passes in various scenarios and the feed back has been great.
