Ceramic Knives, Scissors
(zirconia and zirconian carbide)
Zirconia (white) and zirconium carbide (black) knives are ultra-sharp and stay sharp much longer than steel because of the extreme hardness of ceramics. They are also resistant to corrosion and staining, easy to clean and never give food a metallic taste. Zirconia scissors were developed for use in industrial applications, cutting materials that would rapidly wear out conventional steel blades. Their non-static and non-conductive properties also make them ideal for specialty industrial and scientific applications.
