Product Details
Weight & Dimensions
Combining features of a chef's knife and a cleaver, the Santoku is an all purpose Asian-style knife that's ideal for cutting meat, fish and vegetables. The word santoku means in.three good things in. - a reference to the three cutting tasks it performs so well: slicing, dicing and mincing. The Santoku is designed with kullens, or indentations along its edges, which reduce friction and prevent food from sticking to the blade. The knife also serves as a spatula as you cut, removing cut foods quickly and easily from the cutting surface.

I purchased the 7-inch and 5-inch Calphalon Contemporary santukos to see if I'll like them better than a traditional chef's knife (which I'm not fond of). Of the 2 sizes, I believe I like the 5-inch size better.

I'm picky about my cutlery! After owning a set of Chicago Cutlery for years, I upgraded to my Wusthof Grand Prix set, which I've regularly used and lovingly maintained for over a decade. So, in rating the Calphalon Contemporary santukos, I'm comparing them to low-end Chicago Cutlery as well as to Wusthof Grand Prix cutlery, which is considered by many to be very good quality.

I purchased the Calphalon Contemporary santoku knives because of product features and price. I was not willing to shell out major bucks for something I wasn't sure I'd love. I already have a great cutlery set, after all!

The Calphalon Contemporary santoku knives have very comfortable handles (I have small hands), feel well balanaced, and have sharp blades. Even though made in China, they feel like quality, and they come with a lifetime guarantee. That's a good thing, because I'm not sure how long they'll last. Hopefully the handles (my main concern, as there are no rivets) will stay firmly attached. Only time will tell. For this reason, I give them a 4-star rating. Also, I'm sure that at this price point I'm not getting top quality. I think they're a good value for the money, but I'm not expecting them to perform like the highly rated santoku knives that cost a lot more. Still, for the price I paid (under $50 for the 2 knives, including shipping), longevity isn't really an issue.

Just What I Wanted!

 from Spring, TX– Verified Buyer

Bought this for my daughter, I have one just like it that she and I both really like. This is the one knife I pick up all the time to cut meat and chop vegetables. Could no longer find it in stores.
