You've been meaning to buy a new set of knives forever. Maybe you're still hacking away with the few dull knives you've had since college. Considering how much your cooking skills and culinary knowledge have grown, don't you think it's time to treat yourself to the cutlery you deserve? The Calphalon 17-pc. Contemporary Cutlery Knife Block Set is the perfect set to replace every flimsy knife in your kitchen with the high-quality cutlery you need.

Hand-forged from premium-quality high-carbon, no-stain German steel, Calphalon Contemporary Cutlery features full-tang design, which means the same piece of steel runs from the blade through the knife handle. This full-tang design is what separates the world's finest professional-grade knives from less-sturdy versions. The solid one-piece steel tang provides superior strength, and coupled with the sleek, ergonomically contoured grip handle, gives this cutlery exceptional balance. Each knife has its name etched into the end of its handle, so you’ll always know which knife you’re pulling out of the block. With each graceful, effortless slice, you'll wonder why you waited so long to step up to Calphalon's Contemporary Cutlery.

Set Includes:
  • 4.5-inch paring knife
  • 6-inch utility knife
  • 8-inch slicing knife
  • 8-inch chef's knife
  • 8-inch bread knife
  • 7-inch santoku knife
  • Eight steak knives
  • Kitchen shears
  • 10-inch sharpening steel
  • Maple knife block

Why We Love It:
World-class, hand-forged, full-tang knives at this price are an outrageous value. We love that each knife is etched with its name; no more grabbing the wrong knife! With every knife a cook could need in one set, this makes a great gift.

Features:
  • Knife construction: Crafted from high-carbon, no-stain German steel. Tempered, heat-hardened to 1,000 degrees C, HRC 54-56 (Hardness Rockwell ""C"" scale -- a standard measurement of hardness). Fully tapered from cutting edge to spine and from tip to heel for superior strength.
  • Key performance: Balance of knives, strength and durability of blades. Blades' ability to be honed and maintain their edge. Knife identification on butt of handle.
  • Blade: Fully forged blade. Full tang for balance and strength.
  • Bolster: One piece of metal for blade, bolster and tang

  • A beautiful set of knives!

    I love the Calphalon cookware I bought earlier, so I was confident I would like this set, and I do. The knives are very sharp and feel good in the hand. The block of wood they are housed in looks beautiful on my kitchen counter. At $100 or more less than other brands, this set is a must get!

  • nice set

    This set is nice with enough slots to hold all the knives, even the two bonus cheese knives. I haven't used them much yet since I just got them. I am looking forward to having a great time in the Kitchen.

  • Great for the home cook!

    As a fairly new stay at home mom, I have learned about the art or cooking. I learned that its extremely important to have a heavy sharp knife and to use the steel to maintain the knife's sharp edge often.. I cannot emphasis enough how important maintanice is on knives effectiveness and longevity. So far this knife set is serving me well in all I do in the kitchen. The only drawback are that the handles leave a chalky residue. Not sure exactly why, but it's only noticeable to me.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great Set of Knives for the Price

    These are the first new knives I've purchased in forty years. I'm kicking myself for waiting so long. I loved my old knives, but there is no comparison. These are so comfortable to hold, so sharp, so functional. I love the labeling on the ends of the handles. When I reach for a knife, I always know exactly which one I'm getting.

    I recommend this product.

    All of the knives are very sharp with good weight to them. Handles are nicely contoured and feel comfortable to grip.

  • Great Value

    I'm very pleased with the quality of this set. The weight and balance are outstanding. You could pay $150-$200 more for a brand name like Henkels, but you would just be paying for the badge. The steak knives are a little small and light so I may upgrade that set later but even without the 8 steak knives I feel as though I got a great deal on this set.

    I recommend this product.

  • knife set

    The biggest and only complaint is the product was made in China. The main reason I bought it was the german steel and expectation it was made in Germany. I didn't see made in china in the discription.

  • Quality of knifes

    After the first wash one of the knifes started to rust. Also very disappointed with the steak knives. They are small and poorly designed. Hard to handle. Not the quality I expected. I plan to return the set.

  • What a value!!!!

    I am a professional chef with 36 years in the restaurant business who has never had a problem spending money on quality home cookware and appliances such as Calphalon,KitchenAid, Cuisinart,etc. But for some reason I have refused to spend $800-$1000 on a similar 17 piece knife set from other knife companies. When I saw the Calphalon 17 pc set for $199 I thought how pleased I have been with everything I have purchased from Calphalon[cookware, appliances, utensils] that I would be foolish not to purchase the knife set at that price, even if they were just okay. To my surprise they far exceded my expectation. From quality, the feel of the handles, weight to sharpness. Worth far more than the price I paid and on par quality wise to those German and Japanese brands. Thanks!
