The workhorse of a chef's knife with the quick release of a hollow-edge, this Calphalon forged hollow-edge santoku knife brings smooth accurate performance to the kitchen. One-piece forging of the blade, bolster and tang, ground by hand from German high-carbon steel, creates a perfect edge that stays sharp longer. Fully tapered from the cutting edge to the spine and from the tip to the heel for additional strength and cutting versatility, each knife is individually balanced for maximum handling efficiency.
With a fine-satin finish that is resistant to stains, rust and discoloration, these lifetime tools quickly dice and chop vegetables, mince garlic and herbs and slice meats deli-thin or for stir fry. The Asian-style wide blade serves as a spatula to transfer food from the cutting board to the skillet or stockpot immediately.
The ergonomically-contoured handle on Calphalon's santoku knives feels custom-made for precise management and control. Distinctive to the Calphalon series of knives is the etching of the name, at the end of the handle, for instant identification in a wood block or in-drawer tray. Hand wash. Lifetime manufacturer warranty.
