Comparing Apples and Oranges

What is the main difference between a steel knife and a ceramic knife?

Aside from the obvious difference in their material composition, the greatest contrast between a steel knife and a ceramic knife is how long each holds a sharp edge. This is primarily a function of the level of hardness.

Good Deed For The Day

Have you ever wondered what to do with an old knife you were ready to discard?

Just drop it off with us and we'll get it re-purposed!  For example, in San Jose we take them with us to the local homeless shelter when we sharpen their knives.  The Emergency Housing Consortium or EHC prepares about 450 meals every day and knives in the kitchen are frequently "lost" for one reason or another.  Over the years they have amassed an amazing variety of cutlery and your contribution would be greatly appreciated.
