From their site: "sharp and fine enough to perform multiple cuts on even a single red blood cell"

I think I'd have to call BS on that one. If its really true I'll buy one of the knives.........dj


Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................

Methinks that would be a pain to sharpen.

How strong are they? Seems like they might be brittle.

Nearly brittle as ceramic ... their FAQ pages says that it will chip if "misused" - Confused

Just how is that defined?

Carbide is a great cutting material but it is hard...like glass. Probably not the best knife material other than for a novelty piece.

I wonder if carbide has to be heat treated to be at that hardness? And I wonder if that is so what the hardness prior to heat treating?

I think a ceramic blade would be sharper and much cheaper.

At that price range, I'm getting a Rockstead if I want a fancy super slicer.

Or a proper custom.
