Just as a hypothetical, what are /k/'s thoughts of a knife's blade being made completely out of diamond? Laser cut, and extremely strong material, besides the price, what problems would there be? Pic somewhat related
diamond is brittle as fuck, and good luck sharpening that shit too considering it being hard as fuck too.
also, with dumasscus steel knives costing what they do, do you think knife compnies aren't going to try to mark it up like a bitch
diamond is a shit material for anything that isn't drillbits
> extremely strong material
it's a crystal nigga, it'll break along the molecular structure lines or some gay science shit.
it's literally useless for anything that would require it to be long and thin.
fuck your hardest metal meme, op
It would have to be a pretty fucking small knife and cut from something larger than the hope diamond. Sounds expensive.
Also, the difference in sharpness between a very well maintained metal blade and a diamond one wouldn't be large enough for an ordinary human to make use of. It would be like buying an HDMI cord to play Pong.
Alright, so diamond knives by themselves are impractical. But let's get theoretical.
Is there any way to make it practical? Maybe by layering stronger metals on top of it like the Japanese did to their katanas? Or what about adding some sort of skeleton to the inside rebar-style. Artificial shaped diamonds have been a thing for a while now, so it's not impossible.
>people still use prehistoric stones to sharpen their steel blades
>industrial diamond is available at the same cost
Just bought this for 15 dollar Canadian.
Holy shit it works well on stainless steel.
Of course it's possible to make a diamond blade practical.
You can make a soft and blunt steel edge, and then cover it with diamond dust. Resulting serrated edge will cut steel if dragged across it enough. Only problem is excess static friction, leading to overheating, but it's resolved by using lubrication oil.
That's how you make diamond saw blade.
thats my point, if shit like that can be priced at thousands er knife, what do youthink they would do with a super kewl tactical daimond knife.
> Its made of daimonds it must be awesome
> gotta be expensive too
and retards would still buy it
daimond isnt a metal, dumbass
They're usefull in only pretty limited circumstances like neurophtalmology.
It doesn't act like Asbestos, it acts like fiberglass.
