I initially agonized over which set of knives to start collecting . I talked to my friends who own the top name German and Japanese knives and I researched the different knives on the market in terms of steel and manufacturing. After reading about these products, and countless reviews by consumers, I decided to go with Calphalon. And, I'm very glad I did. I have used my knives quite a bit during the past year and with only an occassional passing of my knives on a steel they are holding their edge great--not even close to a need to sharpen any of these so far. Some of my friends with the more expensive knives initally told me I might be sorry, but as it had turned out I think my friends are second guessing the way they have spent their money on their knives now. Even over my larger chef's knife, this 7" Santoku knife is the one I seem to reach for at every possible use. The way this knife is balanced and designed it makes quick work of everything from mincing garlic to slicing vegetables, so chopping meat. The person at my local kitchen store told me that they are selling a lot of these particular knives and she is hearing much very positive feedback from those who have purchased it. I am one of those persons now. This is a very high quality knife that holds an edge and is designed very well--this knife is easily my favorite knife.

Blade gets dull fast

The first several days using this knife were terrific. I followed instructions for care and use very carefully, never letting the blade sit in water, and cleaning it at once and re-racking it...Read complete review

The first several days using this knife were terrific. I followed instructions for care and use very carefully, never letting the blade sit in water, and cleaning it at once and re-racking it into my knife block. But, the blade does get dull fast. I am disappointed due to the over inflated hype about this knife, and the cost. Not a good buy in my opinion. I am going to check out ceramic knives next to see if they hold an edge better than steel.

      broke suddenly during use

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 7 in. Santoku Knife:

      I have had this knife for four years. The knife completely broke where it meets the handle while I was using it. I have always followed Calphalon's use and cleaning procedures and have never put it in the dishwasher. Very disappointed.

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 7 in. Santoku Knife:

      This was the very first Calphalon knife that I owned, and now my collection is growing very rapidly. Awesome knives. I've owned it for over 2 years and just as sharp as the day I got it.

      Great knife all-around. Great for big cutting jobs like watermelon, cabbage heads, and even great for slicing tomatoes!

        Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 7 in. Santoku Knife:

        I might as well throw away the rest of the knives in the drawer -- this one does it ALL.   The sharpest knife I've ever used, and it stays that way too.  Finally, I'm able to slice things the way I've always wanted, neat and clean edged.

        Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 7 in. Santoku Knife:

        This was the first "real knife" that I had purchased when I moved out on my own and 10 years later I still use it everyday.  It has maintained its look (i.e. no staining) and sharpness all these years later.  The handle has a great grip and makes knife control easier.  Hands down the best knife in my kitchen.

        The BEST Knife in My Kitchen, Period!

        By spudbud

        from Eagle, ID

        Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 7 in. Santoku Knife:

        I now own three of this knife...two are in constant use in the kitchen, the other is carefully stored away for later when I want to replace one of the knives I'm currently using. That says a great deal about how pleased I am with everything about this fine cutlery item. I've even had family members and friends try to 'borrow' mine as they too love the look, feel, sharpness, and precision of the knife. (note: I ended up purchasing additional ones for gifts for family) No one will ever give theirs up. It is superior to all of my other 'name brands' and is the one I 'go to' without fail, day in and day out. You will love this blade, I promise!
