The product seems good for the price. The handle sits well in my hand. But I could have gotten the product for less at Tjmax.

Thought it was a good knife at first. Then dropped it once and a half of an inch of the blade broke off. This is not quality steel as they say. German steel, made in China.

I bought 2 Calphalon Contemporary Santoku knives - 1 (7" size) from Zappos.com and 1 (5" size) from another online vendor. I chose these knives based on product features and price. They are an addition to my set of Wusthof Grand Prix cutlery. I am giving them a 4-star rating because, although they feel like good quality for the price, I'm sure they're not as good as high-end knives and I'm not sure how long they'll last. Still, for the price I paid, longevity isn't really an issue! At the very least, these will do until I decide whether or not I should splurge to buy more expensive Santukos. It all depends on how they compare (performance wise) to the Wusthof Grand Prix set I have regularly used and lovingly maintained for over a decade. Zappos had the best price for the 7" size Santoku, and the customer service and shipping speed was excellent, as usual.
