We 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.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by NateG Comfortable, but issues
We've owned a few of the Katana series for a few years now, not the whole set. Â We bought them for the comfort and they look amazing. Â We own several other Calphalon cooking products including the Tri-Ply cookware set. Our santoku has 2 cracks in it and has rust on it. Â This is very upsetting considering the cost of these knives. Â My next attempt will be Cold Steel as I know their hunting knives are amazing.Â

I 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.

I have had this knife for a few months now and it works very well. You do have to sharpen it regularly like any knife. Enjoy!
