What the hell is the purpose of Black Teflon on a knife? as soon as you use the knife for any kind of real work the teflon scrapes off , unless your only using the knife to cut items in the kitchen. And as far as i know there is no way to restore the teflon or even the look of it at home. not that i place form over function, but wouldnt the knifes just be better off w/out the coating? My gerber AR 3.0 for example, the only time the teflon looked good was the day i bought it. I know gerber makes a non teflon, but my store didnt have it and they were much cheaper than ordering online.
