(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.
