Opinions on Calphalon Katana knives?

For a couple of years now, I've been using a set of Farberware Pro Forged knives I picked up at Ross for all of $25, and they have served me well. This year for Christmas, I got a Calphalon Katana 8" Chef's Knife, and I've done a bit of messing with it while cutting an onion in the kitchen. For some reason, it just doesn't seem all that sharp to me when I compare it to the 8" Chef's knife in the Farberware set, even though I haven't ever sharpened that in the 2+ years I've owned it (I do hone it after every use though.) In other people's experience are these worth keeping, or would I be better off trading it in on a Henckels or Wusthof?
