My friend Josh asked me this on the phone just now.

What would you recommend to sharpen ceramic clipper blades? (Hair cutting ceramic shears)

Would the Atoma be the best option or maybe the DMT plates? I have no idea but I'm guessing some of you have tried this.

Diamond waterstone's. Spendy as all get out though.

Diamond plates. Pretty high grit, though. A diamond stone would be awesome, but those ARE expensive. Not sure what grit is sufficient to stop at.

I sharpen the metal ones on a Shapton Pro 5k and and they are a freaking breeze to sharpen. It takes like 20 seconds to sharpen one, the swarf pours out of it like it's some kind of joke-shop prank.

Usually companies that sell ceramic stuff will do re-sharpening.

He's a pro sharpener looking for the best solution. I'm not sure how he's doing them now.

Diamond films are a clear winner here. For the lower grits, atomas work well, but for finer grits you still need diamonds. I've got heavy duty films now and different gluing techniques. No contest. Send me a PM for more details. Another alternative is diamond strops. You can go EXTREMELY sharp with these alternatives.
