Elevate Every Meal with A Fine Steak Knife

A steak knife takes a meal from everyday to elegant. While they're traditionally used for slicing into choice cuts of meat on your dinner plate, you can use your steak knife set to enjoy any dish that requires a clean cut. Select your steak knives in pairs or sets. They get used frequently and quickly become a favored utensil, no matter what you cook.

What Makes The Best Steak Knives?

The best steak knives combine beauty and functionality to give you a sublime dining experience.

If you follow traditional etiquette, this is the only sharp knife at the table. Leave the carvers and other prep knives, even you use them for serving, in the kitchen.

  • Good looks are paramount when it comes to steak knives. These are dramatic utensils, graceful and effective at once. Choose a knife set that speaks to your personal style.
  • Since steak knives are used primarily on a plate--as opposed to a cutting board--they won't be balanced the same way a chef's knife or other prep knife is. These knives need to balance easily between your fingers when you eat.
  • Finely-made steak knife handles usually appear much heavier than the blade as part of their balance. This is a simple key to shopping online for your set. Substantial handles may balance more easily in your hand.

Selecting Your Steak Knife Set

Consider also which steak knife types make the most sense with the aesthetics and balance of your knives.

  • Straight-edged steak knives make cutting meat and thicker vegetable stalks a smooth experience. The fibers of the food separate quickly and cleanly. These knives are easy to sharpen.
  • Serrated steak knife sets are for roast meats or sandwiches on crusty breads. Serrated blades create more of a tear than a slice in your food. They may stay sharp longer than straight-edge blades.
  • For some of the world's most recognizable steak knives, check cutlery made in Laguiole, France. Look for brands Laguiole en Aubrac or Laguiole Jean Dubost.

Storing Your Steak Knife Set

Many steak knife sets come with their own storage, either a handsome wooden box, a drawer holder or a block.

For a special touch, get storage boxes monogrammed on the top. These knives make the dining table special, so displaying a gorgeous box with a personalized touch is right in line with the experience of using these fine knives.
