Shenzhen Ceramic Knives can be used by anyone for most slicing and cutting needs. These ceramic knives are made of an advanced ceramic called zirconia, the second hardest material known to man next to diamond. The material’s properties make it particularly resistant to wear and tear.”

- Holds edge much longer than steel. Ceramic’s hardness means that the ceramic blade will resist wear and remain sharper.
- Rust proof. Non-stick surface makes the ceramic blade easy to clean.
- No metallic taste or smell. Given the ceramic blade’s characteristics, the ceramic knife will not interact with your food’s taste.
- Zirconium oxide is harder than ordinary steel and almost as hard as diamond. This means the ceramic knife keeps its edge much longer than a steel blade. Thus with proper care, ceramic knives can go many months or years without sharpening.
I got the opportunity of reviewing their ceramic peeler.
Tyler was the first one to give it a try. He really liked the ease of the peeler. It painlessly peels the skin off vegetables. He liked the sharpness of the blade as well.
I just gave it a try a couple of days ago. Lately I have been peeling potatoes with a paring knife so it took me a bit to get used to the peeler again. I liked the peeler for the exact same reasons as Tyler: easy, sharp, fast.
We did not like the size of the blade. It is too big for what we are used to work with . But like all things, once must get used to new things, right?
And trust me when I say that the blade is sharp! I already peeled my finger!! And it hurt…it felt like a paper cut.
