Product Description

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 "three good things" - 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.

Customer Reviews

The balance is very good and the handle fills the hand comfortably.
Jeff Pastoor
The steel is excellent, holds an edge better than more expensive blades, and takes a new edge very easily.
Jon
Besides being really sharp, the knife has a good weight and a comfortable handle.

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.

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.

Until I invested in knives from the Wusthof Classic collection, this was my go-to knife. The edge is sharp and stays sharp and when it needs to be sharpened it takes a new edge nicely. It slides through produce with ease, even tomato skins, eggplant skins, etc, that might need added pressure from other knives. This is a testament to its ability to keep a sharp edge.
The handle of the knife is comfortable, and the tang runs all the way though the handle, giving the knife nice balance.
If I could stop there, I'd have given this knife five stars. Unfortunately, there are some bad points too. Although Calphalon claims that the knife is stain and rust resistant, my knife that was always hand-washed has two small rust stains away from the edge of the blade. They aren't growing in size, but they're unattractive. Even worse, my knife mysteriously developed a chip in the middle of the edge of the blade. It wasn't ever used on bones or any material that would damage it and the origin of the chip is a mystery to me.
Like I said, if I hadn't invested in Wusthof knives, I'd still be using this Calphalon, and for $30 it's a good knife. Just don't expect it to be perfect!

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 have a full set of Calphalon knives and love them. One of the best added features is the type of knife is etched on the butt of the handle and it makes it easy to grab just the right one. But besides that convenience, these are solid knives made from German steel that have held an edge for years--use them constantly. The 7 inch Santoku was for my wife who makes many of the daily meals and while she loved the smooth action and balance of the knife, the length was too unwieldy for her smaller hand. We wound up exchanging it for the Calphalon 5 inch Santoku and it's a great fit for her.

I wanted to try a Santoku-style knife and chose the Calphalon after factoring quality vs price. I'm glad I made this purchase. Food prep is fun again. The knife weighs 8 oz. and balances slightly aft of the point where the handle meets the bolster. The blade holds a good edge. The synthetic handle is comfortable and provides secure control even when wet. My traditional chef's knife is now crying from loneliness (although it will always have its honored place in the kitchen).

Rusted if let dry on a flat surface since the first week. The blade fly off the handle while cutting after using for about 9 months. Luckily it just cut my skin. The hidden part connected to the handle was totally rusted, I guess it was made with less qualified material. I have a whole set of these knife. Others so far works great and not rusted. Not all knife are created equal.
