Giveaway: Shenzhen Knives

This giveaway has ended. I’ll announce the winner on Sunday!

I‘m back for another Home for the Holidays giveaway! We’ve got 15 giveaways across the entire network this week—all great gift ideas, perfect for the holidays.

Today I’m featuring a practical gift that has made a difference in my kitchen. I know it will be a pleasant addition to one lucky winner’s kitchen as well.

I’m giving away a three piece ceramic knife set and a vegetable peeler from Shenzhen Knives! The winner will receive it just in time to use for all that upcoming holiday cooking.

Read on to learn more about these knives and how you can win.

If you, like me, are mainly used to steel blades, these white ceramic knives will look different initially. Each set comes in a padded case to keep them secure, and you can continue to store them there or in a knife block.

I was a bit skeptical about how the ceramic blades would work, but the difference was clear immediately. They were much sharper than the knives we’d been using for years. My husband and kids, when helping with chopping onions and other veggies, commented about how easy these are to use.

My kids have especially enjoyed the vegetable peeler–in the past they found our other peeler cumbersome and usually left the job up to me. This one they could use with no problem.

What makes a ceramic knife different from a metal one? Well, ceramic knives are made out of zirconium oxide. The ceramic blade undergoes high-pressure molding before being fired. Then it is ground and polished on a diamond wheel to form the ceramic blade’s edge and attached to the knife handle — giving a very hard edge that rarely needs sharpening.

One thing to remember, that we learned the hard way, is that these knives need to be used with either a wooden or plastic chopping board. Using them on glass will dull them more quickly or may result in chipping. Luckily we switched over to our plastic board without any damage to the knives. (Note to self: Always read instructions first!)

Ceramic blades will not rust. Their chemical inertness to both acids and alkalis and their ability to retain a cutting edge far longer than forged metal knives makes them a very good culinary tool for slicing and cutting through boneless meat, vegetables and fruits.

Shenzhen Knives provides high quality ceramic knives at an extremely affordable price by cutting out layers of distributors and doing the majority of their marketing online, enabling them to pass on savings directly to the consumer.

One Simple Homeschool reader will win a 3-piece ceramic knife set and a vegetable peeler from Shenzhen Knives!

  2. As old as our marriage, so 6 1/2 years!

  3. Jessica Wilbanks says:

    5 years–at least!

  4. About seven years…love a good knife!

  5. My knives are just a few years old but are dull and some are even rusting. I could use a good set of knives. I am tired of buying cheap ones.

  13. My knives that I am using at about 5 years old, but are a cheaper variety and starting to fall apart. I also have some that I have no ideas how old they are, that I got at a garage sale. Do ceramic knives break? They sound neat!

    Too old and brand new. We recently decided to get a new set of knives as our old wooden handled knives were too old and showing their age. We purchased a new set and I’m not in love with them. I’m still holding onto the old. Thank you for introducing us to Shenzhen Knives and for the great giveaway!

  27. We got most of our knives when we were first married 8 1/2 yrs ago. I have a couple santoku knives that are 3 or 4 yrs old that we really like tho. These look awesome! Thank you for the chance at the giveaway!

  28. I have a mixed set of knives from over the years. The main set is about 10 years old and I added a couple more a few years back. I sharpen them on a somewhat reglar basis but I’m sure these ceramic knives are much better.

  29. I have had my knives for almost 2 years now. And to be honest, they are so cheap that they were not even sharp right out of box:(

  30. We got our current knife block set for our wedding, which was 9 years ago! These look great! Thanks for a chance to win!

  31. I don’t have one full set of knives. I have two that match that I was given as an engagement gift in 2004. The knifes have worked great, the engagement didn’t. I had one ceramic knife that I bought in 2008 when I moved, but I broke it a few weeks ago. (Note: don’t drop these blade down on a cement floor.)

  32. Lauren Kappel says:

    Who knows! :)
    They were handed down to me…

  33. Liked both pages on Facebook. (I thought I was already a fan!)

  34. My trusty knife has been around for 8 years. The vegetable peeler is older – 13 years!

  35. My knives are a few years old…not sure how old.

  36. Only 3 years old, but this set would make my Mom very happy!

  37. I liked both on FB!

  38. Liked on fb.

  39. thecoolmom says:

    All my knives are pretty old (15-20?) except one Santoku knife a bought year before last. I have been seeing the ceramic knives everywhere and wondered if they were really good or not. Thanks for doing the review. I’m interested to try them now.

  40. Laura Meyers says:

    We’ve had them since 2003!

  41. Laura Meyers says:

  43. Got the knives I use in my kitchen a couple years before I got married. So they must be about 14 years old. What a great giveaway!

    My knives are almost 17 years old. We got them as a wedding gift! Liked “Simple Homeschool” on FB.

  47. I use one santoku knife (i am a bit of a minimalist) that I bought 5 and a half years ago.
    It was from a high end store with a french name.
    I just took it to be sharpened in April, and they told me it was in great shape
    and didnt really need more than a light touch,
    but it just doesnt work anymore.
    Would like to try something really different, but how do you sharpen a ceramic knife?

  48. I’ve had our knives for 3 1/2 years–since we got married.

  49. I like Shenzhen Knives and Simple Homeschool on facebook.

  50. Our knives are only around 8 years old, but only one of them is actually sharp enough to cut anything substantial. :) These knives would be wonderful!

  51. Some are as old as my marriage — 34 years!, but my favourite one is about 5 years old.

  52. Our knives are 10 years old. I often think I need to invest in some good knives but never get around to spending all that money that knives cost. I would love to win these!!!

  53. Our current knives are 18 years old. I would love to win the Shenzhen knives!

  54. Oh, my goodness! My knives are some cheap things I got 11 years ago when I got married! Most of them have broken or are totally missing. So embarrassed.

  59. Lindsay Sledge says:

  66. My current knives are actually very new. However we are a family of cooks and I know someone that these are perfect for.

  67. 10 years. They were a wedding present. They were not that nice to begin with, but now….

  68. I think mine are about 10 years old. Gotta love a good knife!

  69. My knives are about 7 years old. People always laugh when they see them because they’re the kind you see in Subway sandwich shops (little blades, colored handles…). Anyway, a new set would be such a blessing!!

  70. Our knives are probably 7 years old. So definitely needing some new ones, as it is hard to find good, quality knives.

  71. Liked both on FB. Thanks!

  72. The youngest knife in my kitchen was purchased in 2002. Most of them were from my childhood, and some are older than me. I need all the encouragement I can get to work in the kitchen, these knives seem ideal.

  79. My knives are only 2-3 years old, because I got fed up with poor quality and bought Wusthof’s. Good tools always make such a difference.

  107. I got all the knives I have when we got married over 10 years ago! They really are pathetic…

  110. Our knives are 10 years old. Ceramic knives would be perfect!

  122. I have had my knives since I got married close to 7 years ago. I would love something that I don’t need to sharpen all that often. I tend to do a lot of chopping throughout the days, and end up dulling my knife way too often :-)

  123. John T Webb says:

    I use both traditional knives by Forschner and a pair of ceramic paring knives. My metal knives need to be professionally sharpened about once a year. My ceramic knives are slightly more than ten years old, are just as sharp now as they were brand new. I can still split hairs with them, although my sight is not quite as good as it was then.

  124. Our knives are only four years old, but they’re very poor quality. I’ve been wanting to upgrade for quite some time.

  125. Mine are only a year old – but I would still love these!

  126. How old are my knives? Some are a few years old, some are about a decade and a half old, while others, which belonged to my husband’s Oma, are too old for me to date. Remarkably, they are also the sharpest knives I have and keep their edge the best.

  130. No telling.I got them at a garagesale. Would love new ones.

  131. Elizabeth F says:

    The knives I am using now I got 13 years ago. I could use a couple of nice ones for the holidays.

  140. Kristina Best says:

    Our knives are 6 or 7 years old.

  141. Our main set is definitely from a wedding gift (30 years this month :) but I’m sure we have a few that we have bought out of frustration over the years. My son is a chef and when he visits…he brings his own knives.

    Liked both SH & SK on Facebook.

  143. I just ‘liked’ both pages on Facebook!

  144. Already like Simple Homeschool, now I like Shenzhen Knives!

    My best one is about 5 years old, but the rest are pretty ancient!

  146. Caroline Cebula says:

    About 9 years old, they are Henckles, but I would love to check the difference of a ceramic blade, I do sharpen mine quite a lot.

  147. Current knives were a wedding gift so that makes them 8 years old.

  148. Our knives are nearly 18 years old now! Some of them much older because we inherited some from our grandmothers.

  149. I *love* ceramic knives! I was first introduced to them 12 years ago when traveling in India. I registered for two ceramic knives for my wedding and they have been awesome. Only trouble is we just recently lost one. (How do you lose a knife?) and the paring knife’s tip broke off.

    I would love, love, love to win this set.

    Besides being amazingly sharp, I love the clean taste it leaves when cutting raw veggies for salad etc. I notice quite a difference.

  150. They were a wedding present–10 years!

  151. Like and like!

  152. Too old. I can’t even remember. I haven’t had a paring knife in forever. That got lost early on.

  163. My knives were wedding gifts and are over 34 years old! My husband sharpens them for me every year.

  164. We have some knives that are 12-15 years old, as long as we’ve been married for some!

  165. Like lots of other commenters, my knives were wedding presents. I didn’t appreciate them at the time (5 years ago) and 2 years ago was more than pleasantly surprised to pull them out of a cabinet and realize what I had been missing. They have gotten a heavy workout since then!

  166. I’m not too sure how old our knives are…over a decade is my best guess! Would be lovely to have some nice new ones!

  167. I like SH and Shenzhen Knives on FB. :)

  168. I have a paring knife from walmart about 3 years old. The rest of my knives range from 17 to 25 years.

  169. My current knives are about four years old…and I haven’t liked them since about day two…would love different/better knives!

  170. I was just telling my husband that I would really love some new knives in the kitchen, but that I should NOT get them as a Christmas gift since they’re more of a “household appliance” than a personal gift for ME. So I would love to WIN these knives and eliminate the whole gifting issue altogether! My knives are hand-me-downs from my sister’s kitchen when I got married, 11.5 years ago. I honestly do not know how old they are!

  175. 2 of our knives, our newest ones, are wedding gifts – uh 11 years old. The rest were from picked up along the way during college.

  176. ElizabethL says:

    Most of my knives are about 10 years old (wedding shower present) although we have gotten a few since then to fill out the set. Would love a few more but good knives are so expensive.

  177. Our knives are only about five years old, but when we got them I had no idea how much time I’d be spending in the kitchen. Every time I have to cut something softer, like tomatoes, I swear I’m going to upgrade them!

    I like the thought of having knives my kids could handle!

  186. My cheap knives are like 4 months old because I have to replace them often…I tell you…they are cheap. It’s the first time I hear about ceramic knives, but now I need them!
    Mayra’s latest post: Cafe con leche aguila (Eagle Brand)

  187. My best knife is over 20 years old. I received it as a wedding present for my first marriage! The matching chef knife went with my ex. I sure miss that knife.

  188. I like you on Facebook

  189. My knives are a mis-matched collection, as old as 13 years (from my wedding :) I can deal with the knives I have until it’s time to process any meat. We are big hunters and processing game is such a pain with icky knives. I would LOVE to have new ones, but they are so expensive. It never seems like a good way to spend money. Thanks for the opportunity to win….I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  202. Our two good knives were wedding gifts, so 12 years old. The others are older, or yard sale purchases.

  203. My knives are about 8 years old. They are from IKEA and not the best quality. New knives would be awesome!

  208. Our knives are mostly six years old (gifts from our wedding). But, my favorite huge watermelon slicing knife is older than me (as it came from my parent’s kitchen).

  209. we received a “average” set for our wedding 1 1/2 years ago. I don’t think they are that great, so I would enjoy having this knife set!

  210. We got our knives as a wedding shower gift 11 years ago…

  211. I like simple homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on FB

  212. I have one knife that was from a thrift store when I got married 17 years ago. The rest are just a mishmash picked up through the years.

  213. Our most used knife is one my parents passed on to me in the early days of my marriage. It’s a no name brand, but cuts better than anything we have.

  214. I follow you on fb!

  215. Our knives aren’t old, they are just mismatched and cheap. Definitely not quality.

    I like Simple Homeschool on Facebook.

  254. Only 6 1/2 years old, but we always like new, sharp knives. What a difference a good knife makes.

  261. They’re not super old – 5 years max, but they weren’t great quality to begin with.

  262. I have liked both Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on FB–thanks!!

  263. My main knife is a 5″ and I purchased it two years ago from Pampered Chef. The tip broke off less than a year from when I purchased it. My other knives (two paring knives) are all cheapies from somewhere. For the amount of cooking I do, it may be criminal to have no quality knives!

  309. We got our knives as a wedding present over 20 years ago. Wow, I guess it’s time for some new ones!

  311. Oh my, our kitchen knives are at least 12 years old. They were a Christmas gift from a customer of my husband’s for our first Christmas.

  312. We got our knives as a wedding present…almost 12 years ago. It would be fabulous to get a new set!

  313. We got our knives when we got married over 10 years ago. They are in a nice wood block, which I like, but the knives themselves are very dull and have wooden handles that are splintering. My mom got me a new sharp, serated bread knife, so I used that knife to cut all my sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. What a pain! Haha! I would love a sharp set of knives because I love to cook with fresh produce and they would really make my life easier. :) Thanks for this offer.

  324. Our knife set is around 15 years old and I’ve never had them sharpened . . . so, as you can imagine they aren’t too great anymore! I’ve never tried ceramic knives, but I’d love to win this set of Shenzhen knives. They sound great and since sharpening knives is obviously low on my list of priorities (15 years, sheesh!) the fact that they rarely need sharpening makes them even more attractive of a product! : )

  325. My knives are about 5 years old. I have one knife I use all the time and all the other ones are dull and super old.

  326. Most are 15 yrs old but we bought a new chef’s knife 2 yrs ago.

  327. I like Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on Facebook

  328. Our knives are 15 years old. And they are really kind of beat up. They kids will manage to cut on any surface that is in front of them, including the kitchen table – (right?)

  357. I could really use some new knives! These look great!

  358. I’m not sure quite how old mine are. Most of the ones I use a part of set (with a few missing) that my boyfriend had before I met him. We’ve been together 4 years now, and he had them a long time before that.

  359. Not too old…3.5 years. But they aren’t the highest quality and could use some sharpening for sure!

    Well, they are so old, I don’t remember how old they are :-) Think, thirty years? I got a newer set but did not like it (cheap and all the blades were serrated so would not cut certain things. ) Ended up selling it, and keep sharpening the dickens out of the ones I still have. Of course, my husband has used the parers to open cans, pry things, etc. so the tips are broken off. I bought him a pair of kitchen shears :-)

    Most of my knives were wedding presents so they would be 13 years old in May of 2012. I got 4 steak knifes 3 years ago and I got a Chun as a present from a house guest a year ago.

  380. They were a wedding gift, 14 years ago.

  381. I have to admit — I have never bought a good kitchen knife in my entire life. My sister- and brother-in-law took pity on me and gave us some knives about 10 years ago. I do try to keep them sharpened, but I fear that they are not sharp enough to be entirely safe.

  382. About 7 years old-we got cheapo knives and I regret it every single day!

  383. My current knives are 3 years old.

  389. Our knives are an assortment of Goodwill finds from 12 years ago … I kid you not. We *really* could use a good set of knives!! :-}

  390. Count me in! I’ve been looking for some new knives. Most of the ones I have were wedding gifts, so they’re about 9 years old, which wouldn’t be so bad if we had known how to properly care for them. :)

  391. Our knives are only about two years old, I guess? We have two that we bought ourselves, and then a “back-up knife” that was replaced by those two, but still has to be used sometimes when I use ALL THE KNIVES. 😛

  392. I’m not sure how old our knives are, but probably close to 20 years.

  393. I recently bought one knife, thinking I would just use it for everything, and it seemed so sharp in the package – alas, it is sharp enough to slice my finger pretty quickly, but not sharp enough to cut through some of my food easily – which makes me fear that I really am going to slice through my fingers often! A new set would be wonderful. :)

  394. Our knives are 10 years old; we got them for a wedding gift. My MOM’s knives are at least 30 years old because they were there when I was a kid. She needs them more than I do!!!!

  395. I like both Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on Facebook.

  396. Would love to win!! Our knives were a wedding present 14 1/2 years ago!! :) Thanks for a chance to win!!

  397. Our knives are about 3 years old… bought them for ourselves before we got married, when my then fiance bought a house. They’re still ok, but the more heavily used knives could do with a sharpening.

  398. Most are older than 8 years, but I do have a year-old lovely little paring knife.

  399. I’ve never even heard of ceramic knives — where have I been? All our knives are from our wedding over 15 years ago.

  400. 9 years old. I got them as a university graduation present from my husband.

  403. My knives range in age from 4 years to 15! My husband has a chefs knife that he really likes and fits his hand, but I have yet to find my perfect knife!

  404. Our knives are about 6 1/2 years old. We have one that is 1 year old, but they all need sharpening (or just need to be replaced. :-)).

  422. My knives range from 5 to 28 years old.

  423. Our knives seem to come and go…one I’ve had since 1993, others came from a garage sale. I only have 3 that I use on a regular basis. I did go to facebook and “liked” it.

  424. We have one set we received as a wedding gift 7 years ago. The rest of our knives were my husbands for a long time before our wedding. Who knows how old they are!

  425. My knives are almost 2o years old.

  426. Like many who have commented, our knives were a wedding gift. We’ll have been using them 7 years this Feb!

  427. i liked both on fb

  428. good question. i inherited them from an old roommate. so i bet they’re a good 10 years old.

  429. I’d have to give these to my mother-in-law for Christmas…hope she doesn’t read this! My husband and I suspect that her knives are from when they were married back in 1974!!

  430. My knives are 12 years old… we got them as a wedding gift when we were 21! They are falling apart…. even though I love Target, I wouldn’t suggest getting the cheapest set of knives from there! These would be a great replacement!

  431. luckily my knives are only 6 years old, but some weren’t the best quality, and could stand replacement or some major sharpening.

  440. The knives in my kitchen were the ones we registered for 9 1/2 yrs. ago when we got married. I now kick myself for not registering for a better set. I felt guilty making people spend too much money on us. Little did I know how important good knives are in the kitchen. How much I have learned these last 9 years!

  441. Our knives are seven years old. We do need new quality ones.
    Thanks!

  442. Liked you all on FB. I sure could use a set of knives. Mine are over 10 years old. Merry, merry!

  446. Most of ours we purchased when we got married – 8 years old.

  447. My knives are from two to fifteen years old. Most are dull and every time I use them I think to myself, “I must buy some new, sharp knives”.

  448. I “like” both pages on FB. Yay! My odds just went up.

  449. so, so old. at least 15 years.

  453. I now like Shenzhen Knives on Facebook!

  454. They’re from when my husband first moved out on his own. They’re terrible.

  465. I actually couldn’t tell you how old my knives are…They were my parents, now mine and are really old (and not so sharp!)

  466. I like Simple Homeschool on facebook. Thanks!

  467. My knives are three years old but they were bought super cheap at Kohl’s by my in-laws. It would be so great to have ceramic ones since I know how durable they are!

  474. My knife is a very inexpensive one from Target that does the job but I would love a better one. We cook almost all of our meals from scratch at home and I can imagine how nice it would be chopping with this set. I think my knife is 4 years old. :)

  475. Robyn Jarrell says:

    Our knives are almost 20 years ago. We got them from his grandmother when we first got married. I’ve looked for a good quality set at a reasonable rate, so far I have not found them :(

  476. The newest ones were wedding gifts, so seven years old. The oldest ones…well, I think they were wedding gifts to my parents. Maybe it’s time to move those out of the drawer…

  477. My knives are the economy set I got ten years ago when I moved away to my college apartment. They are super dull and definitely need replacing with a quality set.

  478. Christina V. says:

    Age of my knives. Ummm…. Well…. I have one that is maybe 4 yrs old, a set that is about 6 yrs old, and a set that is who knows how old! :)

    I’ve liked Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on Facebook!

  480. Our current ones aren’t actually too old – probably five years. But they’re still a pretty cheap set. I’ve heard about these ceramic knives and would love to try them. Thanks!

  481. Our knives are old, like maybe 10+years. And they’re awful. These look amazing!

  484. Ha! I’m in the same boat as many of your commenters! Our knives are as old as our marriage, which is almost 10 years old, already! They’re also not anything fancy. I have one Henckels knife that is AMAZING in how much better it is than the others. It would be awesome to have a whole set that cuts through anything as if it were butter! Thanks so much for the chance to enter!

  485. Our knives are about eight years old – they were one of the first things we bought together as a couple.

  486. Some are very old (hand-me-downs from my husbands family). We do have a couple of new ones from our wedding. These look so fun!

  487. Carla Reed says:

    We got our knives when we married, so they are 7 years old. New knives never make it to the Christmas list for some reason…ummm, wait! They never make it to the list because it’s so much more fun to buy toys for toddlers = )

  496. With the exception of one knife my knives are 20+ years old. SAD!!!

  497. my knives are pre 2000 sometime – my college roommate left them when she moved out. the knives cut most things eventually – but half the time it slips of the food and gets me. i have been looking into replacements, but haven’t been super impressed yet. i am excited to check these out. thanks for the info!!

  498. i liked both on fb as well.

  504. I have one knife that is 2 years old – was a Christmas present. The majority of the rest are 15-20 years old with the exception of our steak knives which are about 7.

  505. My knives are going on 22 years old. The Chicago cutlery was a wedding gift. The blades are getting dull (desperately in need of sharpening) and the handles are dry and brittle…yes, they’ve been put in the dishwasher too many times…one downfall to wood handles. This set looks amazing!

  506. my knives are…gees I can’t even remember! they are at least 7 years old!

  507. My knives are probably about 15 years old! Had no idea it’s been that long!

  510. The majority of our knives are so old I cannot remember when we got them…I have 2 now that were purchased in the last year but are the cheap kind…we are so in need of a new set that actually works, especially for when I make homemade SUSHI!!!!

  511. John T Webb says:

    I have two ceramic paring knives that are almost 30 years old, as are my Forschner Steel knives. My steel knives have to be sharpened each year in February; my ceramic knives are just a sharp today as when they were first bought. I just might give one arm or one leg for a set of these knives, knowing what they are worth.

  512. I like you on Facebook

  513. Ours our only 2 years old – cheap ones we bought when we first got married.

    Sandra’s latest post: Buy Speechless

  519. Oh my! The oldest set is 17+ years. Although I have a couple which are a little newer @ 8 years.

  520. My knives are +12 years old. I worked for the company during summer breaks in college…I feel SO terrible I “forced” a good majority of my family and family friends into buying them. They are ridiculously expensive and don’t hold up and perform as promised. Luckily my set was not full price. Boy could I use new ones so I can stop listening to my husband remind me what junk they are.

  521. We rec’d them at our wedding 11 years ago!

  522. I liked you both on FB.

  523. Sonya Lydford says:

    My knives were a gift 16 years ago. For listening to a salesman, I got a knife set and a block to set them in. I buy a new paring knife about every five years.
    I liked both Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on Facebook.

  524. The knives in my kitchen were purchased by my father well before I was born…probably 30 years ago!

  525. My main knife is just over a year old, but the rest are 5+ yrs old.

  526. I believe at least two of them are 5 years old and the others are much, much older.

  527. How old are our knives? Let’s see. They came from my mom, but I can’t remember if it was pre-child or post-child. He’s almost 10 so I’ll say 10 years give or take. They have been through it all, literally. They went through Katrina flooding and I’m not exactly sure how my husband saved them. While that is a valiant effort on their part, we could you use a set that has not been through a major (man-made) disaster!

  546. We already “Like” you on Facebook, and we now also “Like” Shenzhen Knives.

  547. We bought ours (3 knives)6 years ago when we got married .

  548. Nikiya McDonald says:

    Sure could put good use to some new knives as the three I now have are a sight for sore eyes. Funny how you don’t seem to notice the condition of the tools you use each day!

  549. My knives are only about a year old. I just got married and started a whole new kitchen.

  550. My knives are about 20 years ago. My husband bought them before we were married 16 years ago. :(

  551. My knives are 4 1/2 years old but not very good quality.

  552. Liked both pages on Facebook ! :)

  553. big range of knife ages in my kitchen: one or two from my childhood to a new one we bought 4 months ago. we don’t have any fancy ceramic ones, though!

  554. My knives are 5 years old except for two that are 18 years old. They still work great.

  555. Jaclyn Ley says:

    Most of my knives are at least seven years old. I have one ceramic knife and I take it with me to other peoples houses when I know that I am going to be cooking. It would be great to have more!

  556. Jaclyn Ley says:

    I have “liked” both pages on facebook!

  557. Those look cool! My knives are at least 10 years old.

  558. My knives range in age from about 5-10 years old. I’d love to add these to my collection!

  559. Karen Lynch says:

    Most of my knives are either 17 years old (wedding gifts) or 8 years old.

  560. My main kitchen knife is about 8 years old. I bought it after living in Central Asia, and realizing that a good kitchen knife is an essential tool!

  561. I have two sets: one set about 15 years or older that is a hand me down from my parents and one set that is nearly 10 years old that was a wedding gift.

  562. Our knife set is about 10 years old, plus various and sundry knives we’ve garnered from hither and yon that are who knows how old! :)

  563. My knives were inherited from my grandparents — some are in better shape than others, but they have sentimental value, truly.

  564. Most of our knives are about 4 years old- wedding gifts or bought as we moved in to our house, but some of them are actually from my husband’s total bachelor days well before we met, so probably 10 or so years old. They are cheapies too so I’m surprised those have made it.
    I’ve never heard of a ceramic knife before (of course, you can imagine at four years of marriage I’m still pretty new to homemaking) but it sounds dreamy. We use almost exclusively wood cutting boards made by my father in law, so there would be no new habits in that regard. I’m going to have to look further into these!

  565. Well, the newest are 7 years old!

  566. Actually the one knife I use regularly is about 15 years old but it’s such poor quality that I have to sharpen it every day!! Other than that I have a couple of other useless knives that really need to be replaced and they’re only a few years old. I would LOVE these Shenzhen knives!

  567. My knives are just over 7 years old. We bought them for ourselves as a housewarming present. They are fantastic, however, after using both regular and ceramic clipper blades and noticing a big difference, it would be fun to try the ceramic knives and see what the difference feels like. Thanks.

  568. Crafty Mama says:

    The knives I use are four years old, but my husband’s favorite knife is far older.

  569. Crafty Mama says:

    I like both pages on Facebook! (Stephanie W.)

  570. The good news is that my husband and I will be married 25 years this year. The bad news is our knives are also 25 years old.

  571. Extremely old. I think my mom used them in college. And she’s in her fifties!

  572. My set of knives is at least a decade old if not older…my chef’s knife has nicks in it. Really time to replace them!

  635. My knives are about 7 or 8 years old. After awhile, you just forget how long ago it was when you got stuff!

  642. My best set of knives is from 1979…. I have been thinking it might be time to start looking :)

  643. I now “like” Shenzhen knives on FB, I have already “liked” Simple Home School for quite some time.

  644. My favorite knives are probably at least 10 years old…then, there is the 20 year old set.

  646. Let’s see…we’ve been married for 12 years, so they would be 12 years old. Not counting those that we took to college with us – those are more than 20 years old…

  651. Wedding gifts, so 11+ years old.

  652. Karen Johnson says:

    I’m not even sure how old our knives are! We have very old, old, and somewhat newish ones.

  653. Promise not to laugh …. or go ahead and I’ll laugh right along with you. My knives were in this house in Illinois that we inherited from a family grandparent in 1980 and moved into. We only have one good knife, so we kept her set, and I still use them …. 30 years later. Go ahead and have a good chuckle now!! 😀

  654. I ‘Like’ Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on Facebook. What a wealth of information there is out there, just branching off of one site, like ripples in water.

  655. Nadia MacLean says:

    Our knives are 8 years old – I remember getting them from a friend who was thrilled to see how wonderful the man I was moving in with was and wanted to give us a nice gidt, knowing I’d be whipping up a food whirlwind for my new man, I later married the man, but the knives have not fared as well for as well as she knew me, she did not know what made for a quality knife – they barely hold a sharpening anymore!

  659. Ashley C. says:

    My last new knife set was a wedding gift in 2001. Admitting that my knives are ten years old makes me feel old!

  660. Chelsea Whitby says:

    Ours are only about 6 years old. A wedding gift which we have been grateful for. But not the sharpest or nicest set. I have come to know and understand the importance of good quality knifes! Especially now cooking with kiddos. 😉

  661. My most used chef knife is about 4 years old and travels with me everywhere.

  662. Like you both on FB

  663. heidi sink says:

    We were given our knives for our wedding shower so they are over 8 years old.

  664. Some of my knives aren’t that old. The knives at my mom’s and mother-in-law’s house are pathetic! One of them would be receiving a nice gift.

  665. The knives I currently use are almost 3 1/2 years old. They were an inexpensive set that my husband and I received before we got married.

  666. My knives are 16 years old. Wedding gifts. I had an incredible set of 3 paring knives that have somehow been “pared” down to only one. It is definitely not as sharp as it used to be.

  667. My knives are a mix between a marriage- one set from the husband is about 7 years old and I had some pieces Wustoff- I guess it’s time for something new!

  668. We have one Pampered Chef knife that is about 4 years old, but needs a professional sharpening. We also bought a large chopping knife on clearance at our local grocery store and I like using that one because it is sharp!

  671. not too old….maybe 6 years!

  672. Our knives are 7 years old and we paid way too much for them because we felt bad saying no to the young lady selling them!

  675. I liked Shenzhen knives on FB.

  676. Hmmm…my knives are about ten years old now – they are definitely not aging gracefully, either.

  682. Kristen S says:

    I guess as long as I’ve been married… So 8.5 years! Ready for new ones:)

  683. about 14 years old (used for the last 12 years). my husband’s granny gave them to me as a high school graduation present and they went into the hope chest til we were married.

  684. 8 years old, a wedding present!

  685. My knives are only nearly 2 years old (Wedding present). I have used ceramic knives before and they are WONDERFUL.

  686. M-I-L gave me a few knives for Christmas 3 years ago.

  687. My knives are around 7 years old. I have another that I use most of the time that is almost 20 years old.

  688. kind of old. but mostly a mish-mash of garage sale finds.

  689. Older than the original Ginzu’s I’m sure… time for something new and better

  690. Most of our knives are 10 years old or older than that. Would sure love to have these–have never tried ceramic blades before.

  691. I don’t think I can count that high!

  692. Seriously, my knives are my grandmother’s hand me downs. Ive never had a new knife.

  693. my knives are so pathetic, half of them I got for free when I signed up for some store card probably about 15 years ago and my chef’s knife is a 5-year-old $10 Ikea knife, so sad…

    Jena’s latest post: And So It Begins

  695. Our knives our 7 years old–a wedding gift. While I truly appreciate the knives we received, they really aren’t great! My mother certainly did not use expensive knives so I couldn’t bring myself to register for them–however, our meal prep growing up usually only required a can opener! Now that my focus is real food, I appreciate good quality knives and would love to try ceramic!

  696. Andrea Boren says:

    This is embarrasing, I think we bought them when we got hitched. So going on 14 years. And they don’t sharpen very well.

  697. Ha ha, I had to laugh at the question. Just the other day I was thinking how the knives I still consider the “nice” knives are now about 5 years old. I guess in good knife years that’s not all that old but these are probably just average knives.
    SaraR’s latest post: Passing on a deal

  698. Almost 12 years ago we received two good knives as wedding gifts. Not so good anymore, but we still use them every day!

  699. Some of our kitchen knives are 10+ years old. Others are only a couple years old I think! But could use some new awesome knives for chopping veggies etc….and the peeler looks awesome !

  700. Our knife set is over 10 years old, but I still use one knife that was my grandmother’s – it’s got be be at least a couple of decades old!

  707. We don’t have our own knives, but the ones in my mother’s kitchen (we live with my parents currently) are OLD–minus one amazing large pro chopping knife that she bought within the past two years. I use that one constantly!

  708. I bought a new chef knife with a serrated surface on the blade about two years ago. All the other knives in my home were my moms and they are old! at least 50 years old and not very good!OK! laugh!

  709. I liked both Simple Homeschool and Shenzhen Knives on Facebook!

  720. My wife and I got our knives when we were married 12 years ago. Would love new ones.

  721. Just stumbled on your website, great stuff :) Our knives are about 18 years old as we got them when we got married. Always just made do with them. My son recently has shown a real interest in cooking, so these would be amazing!!!

  722. Our knives are ones my husband received as a gift before we married, so at least 7 or 8 years old. He loves them, but he has always admired Shenzen knives!

  723. Mine are about 10 years old – a set I bought when I worked at Williams Sonoma

  724. I like SH and SK on FB – Lizze Norlander

  725. I don’t even know. I got them for free at a yard sale. They have to be pretty old though

  726. Like you both on FB.

  727. The knives I use in my kitchen are the knives we got as a gift when we were married. Nothing fancy. And could definitely use an upgrade since we’ve had them 5 years now.

    My knives are 10 years old and work just fine. My mother-in-law, on the other hand, has some really ancient knives and none of them are sharp. If I won these knives they would go straight to her, thereby saving someone a finger.

  731. How old are my knives? I don’t know! We’ve been married for 16 years and my husband had them before that. They aren’t that great anymore. Winning this would be wonderful!

  732. I had to think about that one…. 10 years.. could they really be that old?!?!?! Eeeeek :o)

  733. My knives are at least 6 years old …

    My knives range from 15 years old to 2 years old. I have a couple of really good ones and some mediocre ones I’d love to replace.

  738. At least 10 years old…anniversary gift. We love cooking and could use new sharp knives!

  739. Mine are just over a year old – we were able to buy a small set of good knives after most of the cheap set we’d registered for when we got married had begun to break. If I won these, I’d give them to my sister-in-law who is studying to become a chef, and is getting married next summer.

  740. My favorite go-to knife is 16 years old. I bought it when I moved into my own apartment my first year of grad school.

  741. My kitchen knives are the butt of constant jokes in my house. Many of them are 20 years old, long-ago wedding gifts. Every few years, I will get one as a gift, but I have yet to receive a really GOOD, chef-quality knife. *sigh*

  742. Liked both in FB! :)

  743. Ours are 12 years old! Fingers crossed—would love to win!

  744. Mine are a few years old, we have been slooowly upgrading!
