Hello all, have you already seen those new black ceramic knives? I think these knives are absolutely beautiful and really just looks better than classic white ceramic knives. I have seen these knives for the first time just few days ago qand I have to admit that I instantly fell in love with these knives. That is the reason why I have decided to create this article and find some more info about black ceramic knives. I have found some really interesting info about black ceramic knives.
Well, the truth is that black ceramic knives are not so different from those white ceramic knives we all know. Some of them are even completely same, except of color, but we will talk about it later.
So, what are the biggest differences between white and black ceramic knives? It is the material these knives are made of. Standard ceramic knive is made of Zirconium Oxide. It is really absolutely great material for knive, always was and probably always will be really great. Well, few years ago scientists found something what is eve better? What exactly means better? That is really good question.
When it comes to knives it is very important to use some hard, some really extremely hard material and you can be sure that Zirconium Oxide you can find in white ceramic knives really is very hard material. Well, there are material that are even harder and can be used in ceramic knives. This material is Zirconium Carbide that is created during process of creating ceramic knive. It is something really very interesting and also quite complex method. I have to admit that I do not know the details of this method, but it somehow changes in the end of creating ceramic knife Zirconium Oxide to Zirconium Carbide.
What is so great about Zirconium Carbide that black ceramic knives are made of? It is twice as hard as Zirconium Oxide and that means these knives are simply better.
Now I would like to warn you that not all black ceramic knives are made of Zirconium Carbide, there are many knives that are made of Zirconium Oxide, but are just colored to black color because of design. So when you will buy black ceramic knive, always look for those made of Zirconium Carbide.
The last thing I want to inform you is that black ceramic knives are in fact not more expensive than those white ones, so from now on I would not buy those white ones.
