Best ceramic combat knife?

My boyfriend is a weapons fanatic, and his birthday is coming soon. He's talked about how great ceramic knives are, so I figured that a nice ceramic knife would be a cool gift. I've looked online for them, and al i've found were cooking knives... and I'm looking for one that is meant to be used for combat. Any recommendations?? Thanks!

    You can find CerMet knives (ceramic metallic) which is similar to what you have in mind. These are not like pure ceramic knives used in cooking, and they are not torsionally brittle.

    Boker makes a few, and some really small manufacturers do as well.

    Check this one out: http://www.boker.de/us/pocket-knife/boker-plus/tac...

    Or this one: http://www.boker.de/us/pocket-knife/boker-plus/tac...

    Those are tactical (legal combat) knives.

    http://www.boker.de/us/pocket-knife/boker-plus/tac... I think this one is actually ceramic, and will do whatever he wants it to.

    Ceramic knives are basically similar to glass. Like the other guys have said, it wouldn't work as a combat knife. You can't even cut hard materials with one without it breaking. I could go into what steels make the best combat knives, but that's another question....

      The ceramic used to make knives is actually stronger than steel, second only to diamonds in hardness. The blades are put through several tests: hammering to ensure strength, and cutting through phone directories.

    I would think that ceramic would break too easily to be used as a combat knife, ceramic being brittle. All I've seen is skinners and fish fillet knives, and yeah, mostly kitchen paring knives.

    You won't find a ceramic combat knife due to how brittle the blades are. You can however find knives like this survival knife,
