  • 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.
  • Contemporary Cutlery's full tang design provides better balance and superior strength.
  • Each knife type individually balanced for efficiency and comfort.
  • Ergonomic grip handle uniquely contoured for one size fits all comfort
  • Full tang design provides better balance and superior strength.
  • Fully tapered from cutting edge to spine and from tip to heel for superior strength and greater cutting versatility.
  • Hand-ground to a perfect, equal edge and fine satin finish.
  • High carbon, no-stain German steel from tip to tang. Sharpens more easily than ordinary stainless and maintains its edge longer. Resists rust, stains, discoloration.
  • Lifetime warranty
  • One piece forging of blade, bolster and tang for long-lasting durability. No parts to separate.
  • Patented handle labels make knife identification easy.

    What Did I Do Without It?

    I've had an okay set of knives for the past forty years, and have been happy with them. I guess ignorance is bliss. I ordered this knife because it was offered at a good price, and I'd never used a Santoku before. Wow! Now it's my favorite knife. Well-balanced, extremely sharp, and the design makes it very user friendly. In fact, this purchase has inspired me to order a whole set of Contemporary knives. For those of us on a budget, these are extremely good quality. I will purchase more as time goes on, as gifts.

    Katana vs Contemporary

    Calphalon has gone to the price point end of the spectrum with their Contemporary line. I was looking for a Katana Series Santoku which is apparently being phased out. Katana is much higher quality steel, thickness and overall quality however at a much higher price point. The Contemp is OK- a good value. we'll see how long it holds an edge...

    Not Stainless - The blade will rust!

    We got this knife as an incentive for registering for calphalon products for our wedding. I am fanatical about not leaving knife blades in water, but after using this knife only once, rust developed on the blade. Each time we use this knife, it gets a little more rust. I love calphalon products because they are so high quality, this one however is not!

  4. 5 out of 5 stars.

    This was purchased for my wife. She wanted it after using the same knife at our daughter;s house.
