Size: 7-inch
We have used this knife regularly since we bought it about 9 months ago. It handles wells and is comfortable to use. The blade maintained it's sharpness every time we honed the knife. We took good care of the knife as we had hoped to keep it for a long time, Stored it properly, cleaned it after every use, never dropped it before, etc. In general, we really enjoyed using this knife while we had it

However, just yesterday, while we were doing the dishes, the knife was accidentally knocked off the counter. Our initial fear was that we ruined the tip. When we picked it up, the knife was split in half between the blade and the handle. We were incredibly surprised because the knife was made with one continuous piece of metal from the blade and through the handle. Apparently the metal at the tip of the handle had rusted through (even though we dried the knife before storing it). We wonder how long the knife would have lasted even if we hadn't dropped it.

And because the knife broke after being dropped, we don't think the lifetime warranty will cover it. We may try to submit it just because of the rust and see what happens.

Personally: the 5-inch blade is perfect for my soft vegetable (e.g., tomatoes) food-prep operations, because it allows me closeness to the work and precise leverage of my hand and arm to perform slicing.

Objectively: Like a straight-razor, any fine/thin bladed cutting tool loses its edge of sharpness very quickly (This is normal; please do not cast aspersions upon the instrument.). If You cannot abide frequently, lightly sharpening its edge, then the Santoku Knife is not for You. Before becoming a Computer Science Professional, I was a Licensed Barber; keeping the edges of my straight razors in hair-splitting condition was a pride to me and a pleasure to my patrons.

I always just used the flimsy cheap 5" knives that were given to us prior to this purchase. This was my first "nice" piece of cutlery. The difference is amazing. Chopping vegetables takes half the time that it used to with the cheaper knives. I particularly like the heavier feel of the santoku over other specialty knives I have used in the past. If you are looking for a general purpose knife to handle your daily chopping needs, I would highly recommend purchasing this.

It cuts great, looks great. I wish it was included with the 17 pc set I bought at Macys, but it wasn't. It is worth the money. An even better deal with the free shipping. I priced them on Ebay, Food Network.com as well as other places and Amazon was the lowest price!! If you looking at it, stop looking and buy it.

Good value. I wanted to add a santoku to my Henckels 4 Star set, but the price for a Henckels 7" santoku was 3 times the price of this blade. Balance is good and grip is comfortable. Full tang through handle. Easy to put an edge on and holds it as well as any knife I own. When comparing it to the Henckels set, I believe no one other than a metallurgist could tell the difference.

This was the first "real" knife I ever owned and it stayed very sharp, never rusted, and was strong. After about 4 years and while cutting through some frozen sausage the tip broke clean off. I looked and saw that Calphalon offers a lifetime warranty so I filled out the form and sent in my knife. About a week later (today) I received my brand new 7" santoku with a fresh lifetime warranty. I recently purchased the Simply Calphalon 6 piece non-stick bakeware set and am very satisfied. Loving the Calpahlon brand and it's quality!

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.
