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.

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.

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.

This is my favorite knife along with the 8 inch version. It keeps its edge and is easy to re-sharpen!!!! The family uses this knife more than any Henkel we have. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in a great knife.

I had researched many places and found a good price here. The knife arrived quickly, it was packed well and it was so sharp that I cut my thumb even before I got it out of the package. Thank you for supplying a quality affordable item!

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.

I have an older version of this knife that I bought about 6 years ago: the one that is forged from a single piece of steel, including the handles. It was very sharp, the first time I used it, but lost its edge before I was done cutting and chopping the dinner fixings. I tried sharpening it using a large whetstone but I just couldn't duplicate the original razor-sharp edge. So, I ended up putting it away and forgetting about it in favor of my other Henckles and Calphalon knives...plus a couple of cheap knives I found at the local grocery store. Recently, I learned a superior and much better way of sharpening my knives: using a "half-moon" circular movement, rather than stropping the blade back and forth. This method is so good that I decided to try it on my abandoned 5" Santoku. Boy, was I glad I did! The knife, now, has a wonderfully sharp edge on it and I use it more than just about any of my other knives because it's a really good all-purpose tool which I use for cutting and chopping vegetables and spices, as well as for cutting slices of cheese that are so thin that I can practically see through them. The 5" size is a perfect "in between" size that compliments the rest of my humble collection.

If you take the time to learn how to sharpen it properly, I think that this little knife may become one of your kitchen favorites, as well.

I received this knife as a gift from another woman with smaller hands that loves to cook on a daily basis and it has become my favorite knife over the years. I'm not a knife expert, but I used to be a cook and have used many different types and qualities of chef knives and I believe this is a good value for the cost. This santoku is small enough to work on many different tasks and a great size for my small hands and stays remarkably sharp for an inexpensive knife.
