Product Description

UPDATE (7/1/2013): We have recently redesigned and reinforced our handles to make them more durable and comfortable when you are cutting.

This set includes our most popular 6" Chef's Knife, 5" Slicing Knife, and 4" Paring Knife. The 3-piece set covers all cutting jobs.

THE CERAMIC ADVANTAGE Imagine paper thin tomato slices or perfectly diced onions, Shenzhen Ceramic Knives give you precision slicing every time due to ceramic’s special material properties. The blade is made of an advanced ceramic called zirconium oxide that is much harder than steel, and second in hardness to only diamond.

Ceramic blanks are produced by dry pressing zirconia powder and subjecting the blanks through an advanced heating process called, sintering. The ceramic blanks are then sharpened and honed to a razor sharp edge and attached to the knife handle. This results in an extremely hard blade that maintains its edge approximately 10-15 times longer than steel knives. That means your ceramic knives can be used longer without resharpening.

Ceramic is also non-reactive, which means ceramic knives will not rust and are easy to clean. Because of their resistance to strong oils and acids, they won’t absorb flavors or odors from foods; which won’t leave any after-taste residue on foods that you slice. It also keeps fruit and vegetables from browning as quickly.

STEEL KNIVES VS CERAMIC KNIVES Unlike ceramic blades, steel blades are porous, and they can sometimes leave behind an after-taste or residue on the food you’re cutting. And due to its softer material, steel blades lose their edge much quicker than a ceramic blade, and they need to be re-sharpened often. Properly cleaning steel knives to prevent rust is a must as well, as they will corrode eventually, unlike ceramic knives.

Because you can’t use ceramic knives to chop or cut through bones, cheeses and other hard foods, ceramic knives will never fully replace the steel knife in the kitchen. You will still need to use your steel knife for heavy duty cutting, but Shenzhen Knives are a perfect complement to your steel knives for slicing fruits and vegetables and other precision cutting tasks.

THE SHENZHEN KNIVES ADVANTAGE Shenzhen Knives is the leading online brand of ceramic knives. As a result of our e-commerce only sales model, we can make high performance ceramic technology available to everyone. Even though ceramic knives were first introduced over 25 years ago, the price has not changed much, even with improvements in ceramic technology and manufacturing. We soon realized that there were so many layers of marketing and distribution. At Shenzhen Knives we do not spend millions on celebrity chef’s endorsements, and avoid brick and mortar retailers who need to add their huge markup to cover their overhead.

We felt that such a great product –that doesn’t need to be sharpened as often as a steel knife, and knowing the blade won’t rust – should be in everyone's kitchen.

CARING FOR YOUR CERAMIC KNIFE Ceramic knives are for slicing purposes only and should not be used for any other purpose. Never "force" the cut; if it does not slice easily and you need to press down hard on the knife to cut your food, the knife blade can snap. Please do not do the following:

CUT BONES: Never use your ceramic knife to pry or cut into bones as this may cause the ceramic blade to chip, or the tip to snap off.

CUT FROZEN OR HARD FOODS: Do not use on frozen foods or hard foods (such as cheeses, carrots, melons, etc.)

STRIKE HARD SURFACES: Do not strike hard surfaces with the ceramic blade (either sideways to crush garlic or blade-down to chop bones) or drop the knife on the floor as the blade may break.

SHARPENING YOUR CERAMIC KNIFE

If properly cared for, ceramic knives can go years without re-sharpening. However eventually the ceramic blade will develop micro nicks that will make the blade feel dull, ceramic knives can be re-sharpened using a diamond sharpening wheel. For larger chips we recommend that you take your knife to a qualified knife shop that has a diamond sharpening wheel. If you cannot locate one in your area, please contact us.

OUR PROMISE TO TREAT CUSTOMERS FAIRLY At Shenzhen Knives, we do not have a 100-page customer service policy handbook. Instead, we live by the simple motto of “treat customers how you would like to be treated”. And that is the mandate that guides our interaction with customers.

And while most companies don’t want to point out their mistakes, we invite you to look at some of our negative reviews and see how our customer support measures up to other companies. It’s our belief that customer support doesn’t mean much when you like the product or the product works perfectly. It’s only important when something goes wrong, and the measure of a good company is how they react to dissatisfied customers or mistakes.

And while we strive to have 0% defective rates on our knives and 100% satisfaction, we realize that mistakes do happen from time to time, and when that happens, please let us know.

SPREAD THE WORD! Please write a product review to let others know about our product. As a business with a limited ad budget, word-of-mouth marketing is our life blood and our company relies heavily on them. Thank you for your business!

Super sharp and very light and easy to use.
Tom
As long as I keep in mind that they are not steel knives and treat them accordingly, I'm sure they will last a very long time.
B. Cook
I do love them, but within a week I had already chipped one of them.

These are excellent knives for the price. Being a bit of a knife nerd, here is what I've found:

First, these are ceramic knives, and all ceramic knives have a classic trade-off - they are hard but delicate. They will slice effortlessly though anything softer than the knife, but will break if you force it against something harder (bones, coffee mugs, diamonds). That being said, because they are so hard, they will hold a professional-quality edge no matter how unprofessional you are.

The edge on these knives is comparable to some of my top-end Japanese knives, and whereas my Japanese knives require regular sharpening and oiling to keep them sharp and rust free, the ShenZhen ceramic knives are practically idiot-proof.

The best way to think of these knifes is as the lazy-man's carbon-steel super-fancy $1000 Japanese Chef's knife. You wouldn't use those knives to bone a chicken, and you wouldn't cut on a hard surface with them, and you certainly wouldn't drop them. Ceramic knives are no different, but unlike carbon-steel, they require absolutely no maintenance. You can leave them wet, you can cut through acidic foods, you can buy new ones for cheaper than it costs to get them sharpened.

The best thing about this item is that it comes as a three-pack, with Chef's, slicing and paring knives. If you use the right knife for the right task, you're less likely to break it or chip it by using it incorrectly.

The knives are light and quick, and the handles are good whether you like to grip the knife or pinch the blade.

"Eh, is all I can say. They're sharp, but ridiculously delicate. I am NOT that much of a clutz, and actually enjoy taking care of my quality possessions, but these are just too much trouble. I don't mean in the oiling and sharpening sense (they're super easy to clean and wash), but I've chipped the tip off the small knife cutting through a pork roast (without any bone it) because of a less-than-straight pull through the meat as I was cutting, I guess putting a bit more torque on the knife than it's built for (and I wasn't even yanking the thing at all), and the medium-sized knife is now out of commission because the ceramic extension holding the knife into the handle has broken due to a regular, straight, clean cut through a steak. Only the large knife survives, and I'm not very confident that it will last that much longer.

All in all, they were sharp and easy, but only while they lasted, which was NOT that long (purchased them maybe two months ago). I am going to go out and buy another set of decent metal ones again, and will not be purchasing any more ceramic knives."

After receiving a note from Shenzhen responding to my initial review, Shenzhen offered to either refund or replace my knives. I elected to have them replaced, and received the replacement knives maybe two days after speaking with them, and they threw in a free peeler as well. They were fast, genial, and understanding, and I wish more companies in the US would take a page out of their customer service manual. The fact remains that ceramic knives are quite delicate, but after such incredible customer service and a 'break-in' period (pun intended), I think I'm going to be happy with these knives. Thank you Shenzhen.

Update:
Since this review I bought the Kyocera knife below Kyocera Revolution Series 7-Inch Professional Chef's Knife, Black Blade and also received the chef knife in this set as a gift. Shenzhen Knives. White Ceramic Chef's Knife

I've tried to use the knives equally and use the Shenzhen as much as practical. It is a useful second knife. After getting the Kyocera, I was considering buying a second one to have a spare in case i needed to send it in for sharpening or so that two of us could be cutting at the same time.

This gift solved that problem. I still prefer the Kyocera, but thought it fair to adjust my review to neutral (3 stars) from poor (2 stars).

Without a time crunch involved, I took my time to compare the knives. While I can't really see the edges, the Kyocera seems a little sharper. The Kyocera has a more rounded tip and heel (rear edge of the blade) which I disliked at first, but now prefer.

I knicked myself once with the heel of the Shenzhen, but it didn't even draw blood. I do pay more attention now. I am 6'2" and have large hands, so I really appreciate the larger size of the Kyocera.

The Shenzhen chef is certainly usable and I will continue to use it. If you are struggling to justify $40 on a chef knife, then the Shenzhen is a good value. If you are able to sit with $80 for a single knife, I recommend the Kyocera. The differences between the two chef knives are relatively small, but my original purchase included two knives for $30 that I couldn't use for anything, hence the original return.
