12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Bonanza #5


On the fifth day of Christmas Tinned Tomatoes gave to me ............. 

A CeraKook Knife Set in Black Mirror Ceramic presented in a Gift Box with Sheaths.

It's December and time for me to give something back to my readers. 

It's time for my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Bonanza. 

Over the first 12 days in December I will announce a new giveaway each day and the winners will be announced over the 12 days of Christmas starting with Christmas Day. 

Today's giveaway:

One lucky winner will win a black mirror ceramic knife gift set from Cerakook worth £69.95.


  • 6 inch black mirror chef's knife, for most cutting needs
  • 5 inch black mirror utility knife, great for smaller jobs
  • 3 inch black mirror paring knife, perfect for maximum precision
  • Black ceramic peeler, lightweight and razor sharp


CeraKook are a new brand to the UK, bringing top quality ceramic knives at reasonable prices.


"Ceramic knives are made of an advanced ceramic called zirconia. This material, which is second in hardness only to diamond, was originally developed for industrial applications. Zirconium oxide is extremely hard and wear resistant. It has a hardness of 8.2 mohs vs steel at 5-6 mohs and diamond at 10 mohs. 

The blade goes through a high-pressure molding process before being heated over several days of temperatures in excess of 1000c. Finally, we grind on a diamond wheel and polish the ceramic blade to form an edge and the final shape" 

These knives are super shiny, super stylish and super sharp and I really mean sharp! The best piece of kit you can get for your kitchen. I love them and would heartily recommend them.

If you would like to win this set, then leave a comment and register your entry with the rafflecopter widget.

Good Luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway

Disclosure: CeraKook sent me a set of knives for review. I was not expected to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.
