Calphalon Classic Self-Sharpening Cutlery is peak-sharp every time you use it, thanks to ingenious SharpIN™ Technology with ceramic sharpeners built right into the knife block. Whenever you pull out a knife or place it back, the blade is sharpened at the correct angle. This 12-piece set includes a storage block with sharpeners in three slots for the straight-edge knives.

  • Built-in ceramic sharpeners automatically sharpen straight-edge knives with each use.
  • Sharp blades are fully forged from high-carbon, stain-resistant German steel.
  • Bolsters and full tangs ensure ideal balance and maximum strength.
  • Handles with three visible rivets are contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
  • For easy identification, end caps are labeled with the knife's name and size.

12-piece set includes:

  • 4 1/2" paring knife
  • 5" santoku
  • 6" serrated utility knife
  • 8" chef's knife
  • Six 4 1/2" steak knives with semi-serrated blades
  • Kitchen shears
  • 11-slot blonde rubberwood storage block

Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Use & Care


  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Storage slots with an integrated sharpener automatically sharpen straight-edge blades every time you remove or return knives to the block. There is no need to bear down or apply excessive pressure; the sharpener is designed to work efficiently with your natural motion.
  • Do not place serrated-edge knives in the sharpening slots. Sharpen serrated knives at home using a sharpener specifically designed for a serrated blade, or have them sharpened by a professional.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from He loved the knife set! I bought my son a knife set, and he just about fell off his chair when he opened them on Christmas Eve. He knows Calphalon is a Great brand! He called me yesterday to thank me again, and said the Self Sharpening Classic Knife Set is all that it’s cracked up to be. His birthday is at the end of this month, and I plan on getting him a Calphalon Pots and Pan set. Can’t wait to see the look on his face when he opens those!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love them! I purchased this knife set a few months ago and wish I had done this years ago! These are the best knives I have ever owned and I've been cooking for over 30 years. The self-sharpening block keeps them in perfect, ready-to-use condition and they make a beautiful addition to my kitchen.
