    I would like my Marko custom to have a diamond bolster There was a mythbusters where they examined a lot of homemade diamond myths, and in the end they used 5,000 pounds of high explosives to do it.

    I saw a program on discovery, and its believed that manufactured diamonds will be cheap in the future, and we will see em in our everyday lives (Windows, Electronical equipment, and so on) and I think it would be cool to have a diamond covered knife Woot! Never needs to sharpen

    Cubic Zirconia is cheap, and just as good as a diamond. Not to mention the demand for cubic zirconia hasn't reached unreasonable levels extreme enough to enslave and terrorize half a continent in the cradle of civilization.

    Cz is not anywhere near diamond. It doesn't look like diamond, it's soft and abrades when you look at it.

    Most likely not, otherwise companies would be doing it already
