Breaking the Jende Ceramic Sharpening Steel

Talk to anyone who has a conventional ceramic sharpening steel and they most likely will only let you look at it from a distance – which is dangerous enough in itself – and you’ll never get to use it, of course. That is because ceramic sharpening steels are notoriously fragile, and have taken on the same stigma as the famed Ford Pinto, whose gas tanks famously exploded on the slightest impact.

Well, let me tell you – our Jende Ceramic Sharpening Steels can take some of the meanest looks out there, and even hold back the tears when getting a good verbal lashing.  The anti-break technologies incorporated into the handle, the rod and the tip allow the Jende Ceramic Steels to take a good beating, too. We’ve done a previous “bam bam bam bam bam” test, which can be seen here, and now we have done an official drop test, showing that it is now safe for your friends to at least hold your ceramic steel, even if they are not worthy of using it!

Now, as much as we’d like to, we are not claiming the Jende Ceramic Sharpening Steels to be indestructible. They employ anti-break technologies that are designed to allow the steel to stay intact if dropped accidentally, or if bumped into another object, etc. during the rigors of everyday commercial and/or home use. For due diligence, we escalated our tests to see what exactly it would take to break one of our steels, and this was the last known surviving picture of the poor Jende Ceramic Steel that sacrificed its life in the name of science. His name was Brian, after the bastard that killed him.
