Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! We have a discussion going over at the other Forum ( Spyderco.com) about ceramic knives and there has been some talk on the difficulty and uncertainty about sharpening them. I've personally only owned one ceramic knife and personally I didn't like it all that well. But I thought I would raise the question to maybe learn more about ceramic knives and what are some of the better ways to sharpen and maintain them. So what do you guys use to keep ceramic blades sharp? I do know that "diamond" tools are about the only abrasives you can successfully use to sharpen a ceramic blade. So which diamond sharpening tools would you all recommend? I've heard that DMT has some good benchstones for ceramic blades. Any other companies make sharpening tools for ceramic blades? Also while we are on the subject I'm also wondering who makes the better quality ceramic blades? I've heard that Boker makes some good ones but I'm sure that there are other players in the game at this point. Also I'm wondering what the manufacturers recommend for sharpening their ceramic blades?
