Well, they look cool...I purchased the 7" santoku about 8 months ago and since then it's been my go to knife. Well, as of about 2 months ago I started to notice these little black dots on the blade. Now mind you, I've maintained this knife just as Calphalon says to, so now those little black dots have turned into pits in the blade. I have a cheap set of Wolfgang Puck's knives and I've beat the heck out of them, left them in the sink, in water, and still look better than this (ONE) somewhat expensive knife. I really loved this knife in the beginning but now, not so much. I just wish the quality was what Calphalon claimed....

RustWe received this knife and 4 others in the Katana line as wedding gifts. While the knives are very comfortable to use, several of them began to rust within just over a month. Given the price of these knives, I am very disappointed in the lack of quality. They have never been in the dishwasher - only hand washed.

Price, Performance, DesignThe Calphalon Katana knives occupy a unique niche in cutlery. If price and performance are your only criteria, then buy commercial knives. They're inexpensive and work well, but homely. If impressing your foodie friends with cost-no-objects-d'arte is the idea, then there are several high-end options there as well. What is difficult is finding cutlery that balances all 3 aspects of price, performance, and design, and here is where the Katana shines. Impressive design? Check. Sharp Damascus blade? Check. Reasonable price? Check. What's not to like? It's heavy - at 218 grams it's a full 55 grams - 2 ounces - more than a commercial santoku. While that doesn't mean much if youre cooking dinner for the family, it adds up if you use it 8 hours a day and you'll feel it in your hands and arms at the end of a shift. The other concern is that VG10 steel is very hard to sharpen. Do not let it get dull, use a steel after every use, and never ever let them soak or put them in a dishwasher - that will ruin the edge immediately, as it would on any good blade. Should it ever need it, It is unlikely you have the equipment to sharpen this blade at home. All that said, these are great knives, I have a full set and use them often.

The perfect knifeI purchased the Katana knife about a month ago. In the store I was able to feel the grip and weight. Actually owning and using the knife was even better. The shape of the handle is so comfortable and it holds an edge for a long time. I have purchased 2 additional Katana knives since then and enjoy them all.
