    Hi Mr. kwakster!


    Your results are above awesomeness!


    I've always found it tricky when trying to improve a ceramic edge to something below 20° inclusive.
    Stay Sharp!

    Hi LC Kid :-)

    I haven't found a ceramic kitchen knife yet that will hold up to even careful daily use with a 20 degrees inclusive edge.
    Currently testing an expensive white ceramic kitchen knife, but i already had to increase the edge angle from 25 degrees inclusive to 30 degrees inclusive because it kept microchipping at that angle, even during careful use on a good wooden cutting board.
    The chips were so small they could only be seen through my magnifying glass, but they were there.
    I have better hopes for this black knife, but the proof of the pudding is as always in the eating.

    Just finished sharpening this small ceramic backlock folder without any markings (probably made by Böker)
    This well made knife had practically no edge and no point, and even opening mail with it was difficult.
    The new edge fits in the 30 degrees inclusive slot on my Tormek angle gauge, is slightly convex, and can shave the hair on my leg in both directions.
    I used the Tormek Black Silicon stone graded to around 1000 grit for reprofiling, followed by diamond compounds 15, 6, and 3 micron, all on dedicated Paper Wheels.







    Specs:

    Length open: 4.7 inch (12 cm)
    Length closed: 3.0 inch (7,5 cm)
    Blade material: black zirconium oxide
    Blade length: 1.8 inch (4,5 cm)
    Blade thickness: 2 mm
    Handle material: Ivory Micarta & Nickel Silver bolsters
    Weight: 61 grams

    Bringing this thread back to life! No close up pics of the edge yet but you can see it in these pics.
