Rated 5 out of 5 by Onethruthful Best knife ever
I got this knife about 4 months ago and I love it!. I have another knife much more expensive and is a very good knife. But, for some reason whenever I'm cooking, always reach for the Calphalon Santoku knife, believe me, if you have this knife you don't need any other. Everything on this knife makes it the best. either the weight, size, sharpness, it's unbelievable. Don't hesitate buy it, if you need a good knife. I also bought one for my granddaughter for Xmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deelightful Santoku knife broke
Have really loved my 17 piece set I bought last year, but my Santoku knife just broke. the part of the blade that is in the handle broke in half. Looks like others have had this problem as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cicicooks Great knife
I've had this knife for about 6 years now, I own several good knifes ( chef quality) and this is my everyday, go to knife. I love it. It handles well, easy to control, and a very sturdy blade. I keep it professionally sharpened twice a year, and basic sharpening between use, never put it in the dish washer, kept in a knife slot drawer and has been the best knife I have ever owned!

Rated 1 out of 5 by John Gray My Santoku knife Broke Too!
I have had many knives for decades! But after a year of so the blade broke of the handle for my 7-inch santoku! Is this problem common? Who do I contact?

Rated 5 out of 5 by spudbud The BEST Knife in My Kitchen, Period!
I now own three of this knife...two are in constant use in the kitchen, the other is carefully stored away for later when I want to replace one of the knives I'm currently using. That says a great deal about how pleased I am with everything about this fine cutlery item. I've even had family members and friends try to 'borrow' mine as they too love the look, feel, sharpness, and precision of the knife. (note: I ended up purchasing additional ones for gifts for family) No one will ever give theirs up. It is superior to all of my other 'name brands' and is the one I 'go to' without fail, day in and day out. You will love this blade, I promise!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dokimaso My Favorite Knife
I initially agonized over which set of knives to start collecting . I talked to my friends who own the top name German and Japanese knives and I researched the different knives on the market in terms of steel and manufacturing. After reading about these products, and countless reviews by consumers, I decided to go with Calphalon. And, I'm very glad I did. I have used my knives quite a bit during the past year and with only an occassional passing of my knives on a steel they are holding their edge great--not even close to a need to sharpen any of these so far. Some of my friends with the more expensive knives initally told me I might be sorry, but as it had turned out I think my friends are second guessing the way they have spent their money on their knives now.
Even over my larger chef's knife, this 7" Santoku knife is the one I seem to reach for at every possible use. The way this knife is balanced and designed it makes quick work of everything from mincing garlic to slicing vegetables, so chopping meat. The person at my local kitchen store told me that they are selling a lot of these particular knives and she is hearing much very positive feedback from those who have purchased it. I am one of those persons now. This is a very high quality knife that holds an edge and is designed very well--this knife is easily my favorite knife.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gabby123 broke suddenly during use
I have had this knife for four years. The knife completely broke where it meets the handle while I was using it. I have always followed Calphalon's use and cleaning procedures and have never put it in the dishwasher. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dfk221 Best knives I've ever owned
This was the very first Calphalon knife that I owned, and now my collection is growing very rapidly. Awesome knives. I've owned it for over 2 years and just as sharp as the day I got it.
