Product Description

Ask any professional chef and you’ll find out, the Chef’s Knife is the most indispensable of all the knives in the block. Perfectly diced onions and peppers, slender zucchini matchsticks, roll cut carrots and thinly shredded cabbage are just a few strokes away with this powerful, versatile tool. , Notice how the blade edge of the Chef’s Knife is gently curved, from tip to heel. That’s to allow you to use a gentle, even rocking and gliding motion as you cut. The length and weight of the blade helps you work more efficiently. (The longer and heavier the blade, the less muscle you have to put behind it!) Use the whole blade to cut larger items like potatoes and Spanish onions into slices or strips. The bolster gives the knife weight at the heel so the back half of the blade can be used to make smaller cuts. The flat of the blade can be used to lightly “whack” the skins from garlic cloves, too.

I keep it very sharp with a steel.

I own many knives including several Wusthof's but I must admit that this one has been the true workhorse of my kitchen. Its a heavy but very versatile knife that possess amazing sharpness and balance that comes in very useful for just about any task from cutting up whole poultry to chopping up vegetables. I highly recommend it especially at this price.

This is a handsome knife with its heft and the full-tang full-forged stainless steel body, a great knife in the kitchen and value for the money. I have had this for over 2 years now (gift from my daughter). It has become my knife-workhorse in the kitchen because of its convenient weight, its size; that it is well-balanced and keeps its sharpness.

I've been getting into cooking and was in the market for something better than the super cheap lightweight knives I've used my whole life, and decided before shelling out triple digits for a high end Shun or something, to take it in baby steps and try a mid range knife like this and see how it goes from there.

This is a GREAT knife for me to use around the kitchen. It glides through raw meats and vegetables alike; cleanly and effortlessly. It's got a good heft and feels very solid and reliable but is also well balanced. I'm still very careful and methodical with slicing and chopping, but this knife (plus the 5" and 7" Calphalon Santoku set) have taken the chore and effort out of it and made it a real breeze. At this point, I don't forsee a need to upgrade to the high end; these knives seem VERY well made.

You could not get a better chef's knife for the price. Unbelievable. I have had mine for 6 years and never had to have it sharpened professionally. I keep it very sharp with a steel.
I would never buy any other knife now. I use to only buy Henkels. I must have had at least 6 Henkels throughout the years at about $100 bucks per knife. The Calphalon is way easier to keep sharp....and I like the weight better too. I guess there is more carbon in the steel. At any rate....the price is right and I actually love the knife more than any I have used before

If you're reading this review, either you cook alot or are buying for someone who does.

I started with the Calphalon Santoku which is an excellent knife but more suited for certain styles of slicing/cutting (think widely applicable for prepping Asian cuisine whereas the Chef knife is in line with American/European) leading me to this knife. Steel is fairly good quality and holds its edge well. It is well-balanced for high speed chopping with a full-tang in the handle. The grip on the handle is ergonomic for slicing/chopping, however it may not have enough "grip" on the surface if you want more heavy duty chopping (in which case you should be using a different knife).

Overall, the Calphalon is a quality, no-frills chef knife that I have found to be the most versatile piece of cutlery in my kitchen set.

I have an older $20 Kitchen Aide knife that cuts better. The knife has a good weight, and it seems sharp, but it just doesn't slice through veggies as easily as I'd expect it to. I gave it a poor rating because I'd expect it to cut better than my 2 year old Kitchen Aide Chefs knife since it was double the cost.
