The razor sharp blade retains its edge amazingly well, with minimal sharpening steel work. The knife is well balanced and light and a joy to handle.
Hand washing and drying are a must with a tool as fine as this.
I have owned Wusthoff knives for over 25 years. Move over Wusthoff - Calphalon is here!
Simply put, this Santoku knife is my favorite, by far! The feel, balance, and sharpness are fantastic. I have owned it for a year now, and it cuts like it did on day one. It stays sharp with just an occasional touch-up with a sharpening steel. While my German knives are good, I wish I had an excuse to buy more of the Calphalon knives. After use, clean it and dry it right away. It's less "stainless" than my Wusthoff knives, but the advantage is that the metal is softer, therefore easier to sharpen and enjoy using.
If you're serious about your cutlery, I can't imagine not loving this.
Update: I have had to send the knife back for the sixth time for the cracking of the top handle in exactly the same place every time. I think this is a materials problem. I have other knives that are 30 years old and still have good handles. What's wrong, Calphalon?
I find the weight and balance on this knife just right for my grip, and it holds its edge very well. I'd buy it again in an instant.
The knife is extremely well-balanced, and the handle encourages proper cutting technique. The edge is exceptionally sharp and retains it's edge very well. This is a definite must for anyone who really enjoys cooking.
