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

Straight-edge steak knives are ideal for cutting meat, as they glide through the meat and result in smooth-edge pieces.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

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.

Handles

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.

Comfort

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.

Blades

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.

Price

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.
