A few words about us

We started IMORI Advance Ceramics to better serve the home chef. Those who, like us, love the planning, the preparation, the cooking—and without a doubt, the eating. These are the people who know that it’s all in the details. No matter what’s cooking.

So whether you are filleting arctic char, chopping up vegetables or slicing the thinnest slivers of garlic, you’ll find that IMORI knives are not only up to the task, but are a superior cutting experience.

Here’s to the chef in all of us.

The IMORI difference

We are all about precision, safety and style. That’s why we started with the highest quality zirconium oxide infused blades, and then designed our blades with custom rounded back corners and high quality sheaths to keep you and your knives safe.

Our knives are lighter than steel, and second only to diamond in hardness. This means our knives can hold a sharper edge and retain it 8 to 10 times longer than conventional metal knives. They will not rust, stain, or be corroded by acid, salts, or oils commonly found in food. Additionally, our advanced ceramic material is antibacterial and will not transfer taste or odors.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just have to say that these knives are amazing! They showed up in a nice “thin line” …

Wow! I just have to say that these knives are amazing! They showed up in a nice “thin line” white box for easy storage, so that’s where I keep them. I have used them every day since I received them, and I am so pleased with how they cut. I have cut tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, carrots, chicken, pork loin, french bread, and the list goes on. They cut everything with such ease that I hardly need to apply any pressure at all. I’m also very pleased with feel of the handles, and the rounded edge of the blade near where your finger rests is a nice touch (and much safer too). I cook every night and I’m a bit of a knife snob, but I can honestly say I will definitely be using these Imori knives for all of my slicing, dicing, and chopping. I highly recommend these awesome knives for “chefs” of every level. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars …boy can these knives cut!! As my Mom would say…Like BUTTAH!!!

I confess, I decided to buy these knives initially because I just thought they looked darn cool. Then they showed up in this really cool (and useful) packaging and I was right, they are indeed very good looking. But that’s not why I’m writing this review. After all, anything can just look good. These knives are AMAZING!!! They feel great in your hand and come with this really nice sheath. I have a couple of children that are young and I appreciate that the sheath is, while certainly easy to manage, also substantial enough to discourage my kids. Of course, what’s a knife if it can’t cut? And boy can these knives cut!! As my Mom would say…Like BUTTAH!!! Seriously, doesn’t matter what I’m cutting, from bread to produce to meat, they cut beautifully and smooth. Great product. I hope they come up with more!

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Knives

So sharp and resilient – these knives are a stellar addition to my kitchen and you cannot beat the price for this quality. Perfect for chopping veggies, paring, dicing, julienne… my crudite board has been seriously stepped up with these. Don’t think just buy them.

5.0 out of 5 starsI never imagined how amazing this product would be…these knives actually elevated my love for cooking to a whole other level.

I was very excited to receive my Imori ceramics knife purchase but I never imagined how amazing this product would be. My set of 3 knives were delivered as promised. They are a beautiful orange color that makes them easy to find in my kitchen cabinet. The color alone makes me smile. Upon using my knife set for the first time I was pleasantly surprised to feel how well made they are. They are very light weight and glide within what I’m cutting. The blade itself is impressive! I chopped through tomatoes, zucchini, onions, lettuce, a loaf of bread and chicken breast with the ease and precision of a seasoned chef. The use of these knives actually elevated my love for cooking to a whole other level. I highly recommend these knives. They are worth the money and they will make the task of chopping a pleasant experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best kitchen knives I own.

These are honestly the best kitchen knives I own. The quality is fantastic! They are super sharp, have perfect cut power, you can cut everything with ease, including tomatoes, no need to sharpen ever. They are super easy to clean, they never get stained even if you leave them unwashed on the sink for days. I love the blade covers, very convenient, perfect size and grip. I keep two in the original box (which is very nice and for easy storage). I recommend this product to everybody: pros and home use. Ceramics are the blade of the future today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imori made me a ceramic knife convert.

I bought these knives because a friend who is a professional chef recommended them. I’ve had ceramic knives in the past but had sworn never to buy them again because the last set I had stained terribly. I’m glad I listened to my friend, because so far, these knives have not stained at all, and are far more ergonomic than the last set I had. They’re also VERY sharp—even sharper than my Shun and Global knives which I have professionally honed every few months—and far less of an investment. I’d recommend them to any home chef who wants a super-sharp cutting tool without the investment and upkeep of high-end steel cutlery.

Everything about these knives are awesome. Ordering was easy, shipping was fast, packaging was perfect! And to top it off, the knives are sharp and fun. Love them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Value, great knives!!

I bought these to replace some metal knives that were roughly twice the price. They are my first ceramic knives. The presentation on box opening was very high class, beyond expected. The knives feel great to hold and the sheaths are very well constructed. I have cut a variety of meat and vegetables with the knives and they are fantastic, they cut smoothly and quickly and the ceramic blades slid through food much more easily than metal. The best part is cleanup, the ceramic cleans up faster than teflon. All in all I would say these knives are a steal, great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars This set will be used on the daily!

I received my Imori knives just in time for my lunchtime meal prep. I made steak and noodles. I chopped garlic, scallions, ginger and bok choy. Slicing the steak was like cutting through soft butter. The Imori knives made meal prep so incredibly easy. This set will be used on the daily! Nothing better than having a good set of knives.

5.0 out of 5 stars …recommend them for personal use or to be given as a gift.

My knives arrived two days early. They came in an attractive box with a magnetic closure. I’ve used them to cut a variety of vegetables as well as cooked and uncooked meat and was able to make thin, neat, slices. The handles have a very comfortable grip. These knives wipe clean easily. I am very happy with my new knives and recommend them for personal use or to be given as a gift.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why ceramic knives?

There are many reasons to own ceramic knives. Here are a couple of our favorites.

Ceramic blades will retain their original sharpness up to 10 times longer than ordinary steel blades.

Ceramic blades won’t rust or absorb acids and oils, which means that cut food won’t brown. This also makes them very easy to clean, just a quick rinse and wipe with a kitchen towel.

Why IMORI Advanced Ceramics?

We are all about precision, safety and style. That’s why we started with the highest quality zirconium oxide infused blades, and then designed our blades with custom rounded back corners and high quality sheaths to keep you and your knives safe.

We took our inspiration from our love of Japanese design and attention to detail. Our knives are perfectly balanced, comfortable and have a style all their own. They come in a variety of sizes, in order to ensure there is the correct tool for every task.

How do I care for my IMORI knives?

Because chef rated knives (especially ceramic ones) have such a fine edge, you should avoid cutting with any knife on glass, granite, marble, or tile surfaces that can cause the blades to chip or break. Instead, cut on softer surfaces like wood, plastic, silicone and bamboo. Also, avoid cutting frozen foods, bones and any other denser products because they could damage the knives. As a general rule, if you wouldn’t bite into it with your teeth, don’t touch it with your knives.

What is zirconium oxide?

Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), sometimes known as zirconia (not to be confused with zircon), is a white crystalline oxide of zirconium. Its most naturally occurring form, with a monoclinic crystalline structure, is the mineral baddeleyite. A dopant stabilized cubic structured zirconia, cubic zirconia, is synthesized in various colours for use as a gemstone and a diamond simulant.

— Wikipedia

In other words, it’s synthetic diamond.

Are ceramic knives dishwasher safe?

We do not recommend washing ceramic knives (or even high quality stainless knives) in the dishwasher. First, it is potentially dangerous if someone forgets the knife is in the dishwasher and grabs it the wrong way. Second, the water in a dishwasher moves around very forcefully, and could smash your knives against other objects, which could chip the objects and/or the knife. But don’t worry, ceramic knives are very easy to clean by hand. Just wash them in warm water with soap or a mild bleach solution (blade only).

Can I sharpen a ceramic knife?

There are ceramic knife sharpening services and home ceramic knife sharpeners. At this time, we do not offer either.

Will a ceramic knife break if I drop it?

Any knife, stainless steel or ceramic, can break at the tip if it is dropped on a hard surface at the wrong angle.

Do my IMORI knives come with a warranty?

All IMORI knives are 100% guaranteed or your money back. Simply return the complete set inside the original packaging.

If you’ve already purchased an IMORI product click here to register your warranty.

Where should I store my IMORI ceramic knives?

We recommend storing your IMORI knives in their sheaths and/or in the package they came in.

Can I use a ceramic sharpening rod to sharpen my IMORI knives?

No. Ceramic sharpeners can only sharpen conventional metal knives. Because ceramic is harder than all metals, it is ideal for re-sharpen softer materials, but it can not sharpen itself.
