Ceramic Knives are very sharp and also very fragile. Ceramic knives will last a long time without sharpening as long as the blade is not twisted or used to pry something open. At EOD Gear we guarantee many of our ceramic knives against breakage.
Why do EOD Techs use ceramic knives?
EOD Techs and Bomb Techs use ceramic knives primarily because the ceramic blades do not allow electrical current to pass wires which could detonate an IED. EOD Gear supplies Bomb Techs with the best ceramic tools for Hand Entry operations.
Can ceramic knives make it through a metal detector?
Ceramic knives can make it through a metal detector undetected as long as the knife contains only ceramic and plastic. Just because the ceramic knives can go through undetected, it is illegal to bring them on an airplane. TSA will confiscate and destroy your knife. Be sure to pack your ceramic tools in your checked bags.
