so, what's slice ceramics all about?.
Slice ceramics are not the fragile ceramics of popular imagination. They’re actually part of a more recent category of material known variously as advanced ceramics, fine ceramics, or engineered ceramics. The material is composed of 100 percent zirconium oxide. This material, developed through the advances in ceramic research of the 1950s, has many useful properties.

A Versatile Material
Zirconium oxide has many advantages over steel, especially for industrial applications. Unlike metal, a zirconium oxide utility blade is chemically inert. This means no chance of chemical reactions while you cut, as well as a strong defense against harmful bacteria. Ceramic never rusts, which means it doesn’t require the same oils and lubricants used on metal blades to prevent premature rusting.
Industries as varied as pulp and paper and aerospace benefit from the use of engineered ceramic utility blades because of these inherent properties:
·       Non-magnetic
·       Anti-static
·       Non-conductive
·       Non-sparking
·       Safe up to 1600 degrees Celsius
·       Chemically inert and non-contaminating
·       Non-reactive: impervious to acids and salt
·       Non-porous and chemically resistant
·       Oil and lubricant free
·       Never rusts

Hard as Nails (Harder, Actually)
When customers used to metal blades try Slice tools for the first time, they’re comparing two very different cutting materials. There are important manufacturing differences between a Slice ceramic blade vs steel, due to the different properties of these materials. The primary difference is hardness.


What Does Slice Mean by Finger Friendly?
Finger friendly simply means that Slice blades are safer to touch and handle than typical steel blades. You can pick up Slice replacement blades without fear of accidental injury. Compared with typical blades, for example, our utility blades are unlikely to cut you because they require much more force to do so. As shown below, you can run a Slice blade over a balloon’s surface and the balloon will remain intact. That’s simply not the case for steel blades.

So if Slice Blades Cut Other Materials Effectively, How Do They Resist Skin?
Slice engineers first looked at why metal blades pierce the skin so easily. Not only are their edges overly sharp, but the blade itself is quite narrow. This means it requires little force to pierce the skin.


Image: The initial cutting zone is defined as the part of a blade’s edge that does the actual cutting. This zone is a result of the angle used to grind the blade. In a metal blade, the smaller angle creates a longer and sharper cutting zone, making users much more vulnerable to lacerations. Slice uses a patented double grind that shortens the cutting zone significantly. This creates an effective cutting edge that doesn’t endanger the user.


Finally, we took into account the properties of skin, which is harder on the surface, but pliable as a whole. Our grind dissipates the pressure on skin, making it harder to penetrate.


Image: Skin is hard on outside and soft on the inside. Slice engineers took this into account when designing our blades. Our wider angle displaces the force of the blade against skin’s tougher, fleshy outer layer. In contrast, with nowhere for the exterior force to go but in, narrow metal blades easily pierce skin.
