Versatile Set for Every Cutting Task
This 14-piece cutlery set includes all of the knives you need for chopping, slicing, mincing, and more. Enjoy the chef's knife and Santoku for everyday tasks like chopping vegetables and slicing meat, use the serrated utility knife to cut breads and delicate items like tomatoes, and peel and core fruits with the nimble paring knife. This set also includes six steak knives with semi-serrated edges for cutting through thick steaks and chops, and a pair of kitchen shears to snip herbs or trim meats.
Integrated Bolster Design for Smooth Slicing
Calphalon Katana Series Cutlery features an integrated bolster between the handle and blade for a secure grip. This integrated design allows for proper full-blade technique and smooth cuts while slicing, chopping, and dicing.
Ergonomic Poly-Resin Grip Handles
The Calphalon Katana Series 14-Piece Cutlery Set features an updated Asian style that will stand out in any kitchen. Ergonomically contoured poly-resin grip handles fit snugly in your hand so you can hold the knives comfortably for long periods while working in the kitchen.
Diamond Steel Sharpens Knife Edges
Many professional chefs hone their knives before each use to ensure their blades are as sharp as possible. The Calphalon Katana Series 14-Piece Cutlery Set has a diamond steel coated with monocrystalline diamonds for exceptional hardness which allows it to actually sharpen knives. When sharpening a knife, position your steel tip-down against a cutting board. Hold the knife at a 22-degree angle to the steel and draw it across from heel to tip in one smooth motion. Repeat three to four times per side.
Full Lifetime Warranty
The products in this set are backed by a full lifetime warranty. Calphalon will replace any item found defective in material or workmanship when put to normal household use and cared for according to the instructions.

Well balanced, none of the knives feel unwieldy or precarious while cutting (I have small hands and my husband has large hands, neither of us have any problems with these knives).
Sharp edge that holds up well, and the honing steel is easy to use to keep them at their sharpest.
The blades are nice and sturdy, but not heavy.
Good variety. The serrated utility works great on tomatoes, sausages, slicing sandwiches in half, etc. Chef's knife goes through large melons like they're nothing. Scissors work great (some other sets have really sub-par scissors).
Aesthetics... a really beautiful knife set to have displayed on your kitchen counter.
I do wish that it had a 8" or 9" Bread Knife, or at least had an extra slot in the block so you can add one to the set. However there are only enough holes for the included knives.
I was disappointed that the steak knives weren't the Damascus Steel... they are just cheap stamped blades. They work fine, but for the price of the set it would be nice to have them all the same.
I would highly recommend these knives. I love them!
Nothing feels better in your hand than these handles, they are not made for small hand though but for me they feel great. The material used to make the knife handle is much more important than you might think. Wooden handles have a tendency to rot or corrode. A corroded handle will make the blade fit loosely, which can be dangerous. These feel and great they are less likely to break than many other handles and are not overly heavy.
The way that a knife handle is designed is important. The part of the blade that goes into the handle (called the tang) should go all the way through on both sides. Many knife tangs only go part of the way through the knife's handle or on one side. This may cause the blade to come loose, but this has a full tang. They are well balanced and you need that to make sure you don't cut your self
Cutting with these tools is great since slicing is so easy.. I have tried with other knives, but never got as good of results as with this set. These are worth every penny, but do take care of them! They do need hand washing.
They are made of a slightly softer steel than most professional grade cutlery I have used, but they sharpen easier because of that. All around I am beyond pleased and would recommend them at full price, so that makes them a bargain if you can shave off some $c-notes$ here at Amazon!
The paring blade, chef's knife, and the 7 inch santoku all have chips along the blade edge - and the more we look, the more we find! At first, we thought we'd be able to simply sharpen them back to smoothness ... but some of the chips are very deep. Never seen anything like it before on a knife. Very curious weakness of the metal, and very unhappy we'll have to replace them so soon.
