Calphalon Contemporary cutlery 7-inch santoku knife
Sleek and attractive, this 7-inch Contemporary santoku knife from Calphalon complements the most contemporary kitchens, easily blending in with stainless-steel appliances and accessories. Translated as "three good things", the santoku knife is equally suited to slice, dice, and mince. Just as versatile as the chefs knife, this Asian-style blade combines the dexterity and strength of a cleaver and chefs knife into one.
Constructed from one piece of high-carbon, stain-resistant, German steel, this knife is individually balanced increasing the comfort, efficiency, and strength. The blade has been hand ground to achieve maximum sharpness and designed with kulles, indentions along the blade edge that are specific to the santoku knife. These reduce the friction and prevent food from clinging to the blade. The ergonomically contoured comfort-grip handle is designed to fit all hands. Calphalon offers a lifetime warranty, recommends washing all knives by hand, and suggests always storing cutlery sets in the appropriate storage location. --Lea Werbel
