The shaft of the Ceramica is coated with 1000 grit ceramic, which has an extra-fine texture and high hardness rating- these qualities make the Ceramica perfect for blades that feature a fine edge (such as German or Asian knives). Inside the ceramic skin is a steel core, which makes for a strong, sturdy construction that will last longer than hollow-core ceramic sharpeners. The sharpening surface is a full 12" long, making it ideal for knives of any size.
Ceramic sharpeners are regarded as superior to diamond coated steel because of their high grit and fine surface. The ceramic cut is a cleaner process, with the final edge more refined than that rougher steel finish. This is especially true for new blades that don't require aggressive sharpening surfaces to restore their edge. Do note that the Ceramica is intended for stainless steel knives.
