ID Design Review 2006: Calphalon Katana Knife

Name: Katana Series Cutlery
Designer: Calphalon

Its stretchmarks are eyecatching and apparently make it a very good knife set. Featured as the Best of Category among consumer products in ID Magazine's Annual Design Review, Calphalon's new Katana knife series has pushed knife design further than those bozos from Germany.

Katana uses a core of VG-1 Japanese steel, which is super hard and retains its edge, and wraps it in 32 layers of stainless steel in such a way that the layers shows off their fancy stripes. The handle is very ergonomic as well, but the thing that put the editors over the edge was the price for the set: $300.
