Shenzhen Knives is based in Honolulu, Hawaii. Almost 10 years ago, we first heard about ceramic knives and were amazed at the technology. However, we were taken aback at the prices that the name brand knife companies were charging for knives.

Even though ceramic knives were first introduced over 25 years ago, the price had not changed much, even with improvements in ceramic technology and manufacturing. We soon realized that there were so many layers of marketing and distribution. Coupled with the fact that were only a few brands of ceramic knives, this kept the price of ceramic knives unusually high.
We felt that such a great product – not having to sharpen the ceramic knife as often and knowing the ceramic blade would not rust – should be in everyone’s kitchen. Yet the price points for ceramic knives meant that it would not happen
Ceramic knives are a great complement to your steel knives. For when you want to cut a tomato, quickly dice onions, or peel a potato, Shenzhen ceramic knives and ceramic peelers can handle all your precision slicing tasks in any kitchen.
These knives are made of Ceramic Zirconia, processed into Zirconium Oxide (white) or Zirconium Carbide (black), also called “modern ceramics”. Zirconia is second in hardness only to diamond and was originally developed for industrial applications where metal components failed. Zirconia is extremely hard, wear resistant, and chemically inert.
