You can probably google better reviews than this:
but, as I suspected, they are more brittle and tend to break or chip and
they will dull eventually and you will not be able to sharpen them yourself.
Yes, they do chip when impacted, but properly treated a ceramic knife is
sharper than a steel knife and will retain its edge for years, while
steel knives need sharpening every month or two.
If you have steady hands and the right tools (basically sandpaper up to
2000 grit), you can sharpen a dull and chipped ceramic knife.
Yes, even cave men had sharp ceramic knives - they were made out of flint.
I touch my kitchen knives up with a steel when they need it and have an
electric diamond wheel kitchen sharpener. My hunting knives, which you
could shave with, are touched up with a ceramic rod sharpener.
The knives that appear easiest to sharpen are those that seem to dull
maybe silicon carbide (WetOrDry) sandpaper,but not your ordinary sandpaper.
Of course,you won't get such fine grits without it being SiC.
you can buy diamond sharpening blocks or plates,too. I suspect they'd last
longer,but cost more.
Everything shows up on an X-ray, and they use broad spectrum and color-
coding technology to differentiate between materials.
Nope. This is one of the major fallacies of the scanners. It's a dog
and pony show to create the illusion that people are safer. The funny
thing is that people weren't at more risk in the first place.
If you jump at every shadow, eventually, if you wait long enough,
there will be something in the shadows so you'll have proven all the
jumping to be worthwhile.
probably won't show up on a magnetometer,but yes to the X-ray machines.
Planning on arming yourself while flying? ;-)
not a good idea to try.it might get you kicked off the flight,or worse.
BTW,having such items in your checked baggage,they may not be there when
you arrive,having been stolen by TSA workers.That is a frequent
occurrence,stolen items from checked baggage.
