Information from the Spyderco catalog

Spyderco's specialty ceramic sharpeners:

The extreme hardness of ceramic abrasives (9.2 MOHS) makes them ideal for cutting hardened and tempered metal. The uniform molecular structure provides a predictable "scratch pattern" and the surface exhibits excellent wear characteristics. No lubrication is required, which makes ceramics perfect for sterile and sanitary applications. Simple clean-up is achieved with common cleanser and a non-metallic pad such as a SCOTCH-BRITE®.[1]
