    Default Cerakote blade?

    I had this thought today and found one older post with in his opinion good results.

    Re-bluing a tang?

    What do you think? Has anyone else tried it?

    A lot of people like Cerakote, especially in Japan.

    I never found anything fun about Cerakote, guess because I can't sing worth a hoot anyway.

    I would think it'd be h3ll on your hones, but it sure could look cool!

    most ceramics are harder than most steels. and ceramics are used as a binder in a lot of synthetic hones.

    I didn't think of this. I looked on some knife forums and didn't get any negatives.

    I would lean towards 1 or 2 mils at the edge of a bevel wouldn't be that big of a deal.

    Not the same. I cerakote in my shop and have done several blades. 3 to 4 passes on a 320 grit and the bevel is cleared of all cerakote material.

    True. a lot of knives use cerakote. most are sharpened with either a belt and/or diamond plates which are both going to be harder than the ceramic binder in cerakote. All of that said, I certainly didn't mean to say it would ruin a softer straight razor hone that is ceramic-bound or others. Just might lead to a little more wear than a typical blade. It would be interesting test!
