I pre-ordered a Shark as well, steep shipping from Europe, but I'm interested to see how it does.

Does anybody know how ceramic blades are being produced? Wouldn't Spyderco need new machinery or tools or whatever to be able to produce a mule from this stuff?

I did preorder of Barracuda S, this size is most useful on my kitchen.
Sometimes during sharpening of my Zwilling knifes, I wonder how my wife can blur a knife with a gentle woman’s hand in just a few weeks. :)
So for me the best test is to give this new material knife to my wife for a month of use and compare with the stainless steel knife :D

I was impressed by Pete’s results testing this. I’m holding off for now because the sizes offered are quite small blades for what I use in the kitchen. I prefer a 10” chef’s knife and won’t go for anything <8”.

Very curious to hear feedback from those who have placed orders. I will pick up a paring knife or future larger chef’s knife if the feedback is good.

I ordered the black whale
From what I gather, these knives are super light, so a chef knife won’t feel the same for me. It will work as a pairing knife or utility knife size for my style of cooking. The video shows how he sharpens them FYI. I want to use it as a light backpacking knife and general food prep mid size knife.

Spyderco is an industry leader in materials. I would be interested to see if they would make a kitchen and or a folder out of this. Imagine how light a FRN handle knife would be? Think waterway style knife.

I am curious as to how a spyderco SE edge would fare. This may be the first ceramic that could be useful as a serrated edge.

A little curious as to how a mule would work as this appears to be a pretty flexible material and is probably being made rather thin. I'm all for it though.
