Steak Knives Buying Guide
Ahh, a nice juicy steak to cut into. But wait, what's this? The knife won't cut the steak? That's not a good scenario for you or your guests when serving a delicious cut of meat. Steak knives with sharp blades are a must for entertaining and enjoying a meal. Look at your options when registering for or buying steak knives for long-lasting use.
Types of Steak Knives
The debate over serrated or straight-edge steak knives might be as controversial as crunchy versus smooth peanut butter. It all comes down to personal preference. But there are other factors to consider when choosing steak knives, such as handle style and steel type. Whatever your preferences, a sharp set of steak knives will serve you well for many years.
Straight-edge steak knives are ideal for cutting meat, as they glide through the meat and result in smooth-edge pieces.

Arcos Nitrum Stainless Steel Nitrum is a nitrogen-enriched stainless steel formula that's found exclusively in Arcos knives. With Nitrum stainless steel, your Arcos knife will possess improved hardness for a longer lasting sharpness, enhanced microstructure for higher resistance to corrosion, and exceptional edge durability for longer periods between re-sharpening. The Nitrum production process has no negative effect on the air, water, or soil. How to Correctly Sharpen Your Arcos Knife Arcos recommends the regular use of a sharpening steel to keep the cutting edge of your knife razor sharp. Place the blade of the knife on the steel at a 20 degree angle. Keep the arm that is holding the steel steady and swipe the blade lightly over the steel keeping the angle at 20 degrees. Give each side of the knife an equal number of swipes (about 20). Sharpen the other side of the blade as before, this time using the other side of the honing steel. And remember to always protect your fingers. See larger image. Tips For Use and Maintenance Wash knives immediately after use with a mild soap. Avoid prolonged contact with leftover food. Do not use bleach, soda or detergents containing chlorine or chlorides ions because they rust the steel and may cause it to lose its shine. Avoid rubbing your knives with abrasive products, hard cloths, and metallic or synthetic cleaners. If you use a dishwasher, place your knives in with the blades facing up and in separate containers from the rest of your cutlery to avoid scratching. Avoid leaving your knives submerged in water for long periods of time, especially in hard or salty water that can affect metals. Dry immediately with a soft cloth. Leaving your knives to dry in the dishwasher is not recommended. About Arcos Arcos is a leading Spanish knife manufacturer and one of the oldest knife and cutlery manufacturers in the world. In 1745, Don Juan de Arcos started hand-crafting the first knives and scissors marked with the Arcos brand, and many of these pieces are displayed in the National Museum of Archeology of Madrid. Gregorio Arcos Aroca turned the small hand-crafted workshop into a mass-production factory for professional knives in 1875. And a century later, Gregorio Arcos Villanueva started the international expansion of the company. Today, Arcos is still a family owned business and proud of its remarkable heritage.

When buying steak knives, think about how many people you usually have at the dinner table or for special occasions. Do you need a set of six, 12, or 24? A matching set of steak knives is ideal and won't leave you scrambling to find extras when it's time for entertaining. Be sure you actually hold a steak knife in your hand so know how the handle feels and if it's easy to manage. Also consider how the steak knives will coordinate with your existing flatware when you set the table.
Available in a variety of materials, from colorful or black plastic and beautiful woods to carved bone and sleek stainless steel, the handles on your steak knives can make a statement.
The way a knife feels varies from person to person, so if you have the opportunity, hold several different steak knives before you make your purchase decision so you're comfortable with how the size and shape fit your hand.
Knife blades are made using one of two methods: stamping or forging. Stamped blades are punched from a sheet of steel, while forged knives are made using a technique of heating a thick steel piece and pounding it with a hammer into shape.
The price generally reflects what you are getting. Because the process of forging is more involved and the edge of the knife will typically hold longer, forged knives are generally more expensive than stamped knives. The material of the handle is usually reflected in the price as well.
