If you’ve ever tried to cut a steak with a dull, old knife, you know the frustration of sawing away just to get a bite of food. A lot of people just buy serrated steak knives from their local discount store, thinking that serrated edges will stay sharp longer and cut meet effectively. This is a myth! A smooth-edged knife is actually more efficient at cutting a piece of meat cleanly and easily.
Investing in a high quality steak knife set will prevent you from having to replace those discount brands when they break, rust, or dull. There are several brands that offer excellent knives steel bite pro that will last you a lifetime. Some can be fairly expensive, but buying them online or from bulk retailers can slash the price by about half. Two companies who present truly great options for steak knives are Wüsthof and Global.
A particularly nice set is the Wüsthof Classic Set. This set was named one of the best sets by Fortune 500. It comes with four knives as well as a stainless steel case for safe storage. These knives are hand forged from high-carbon stainless steel, making them extra durable. Because they are made of this high grade steel, the 4 ½ inch blades will stay sharp longer. They have an ergonomic, triple-riveted handle that will fit comfortably in your hand. Coming from a German company that has been making fine cutlery for almost two centuries, you can bet that you will get great quality for the price.
From Germany, we go to Japan for a newer, award-winning company that has already proven to manufacture truly amazing knives. The Global GSF 4-Piece Steak Knife Set will surely confirm the fact that Japanese knives can perform on par with tradition German knives, or even surpass them in quality in some cases. This set comes with four seamless, razor sharp knives. The fact that the entire knife is cut from one piece of high carbon stainless steel makes it a very sanitary choice, as there are no seams for food to get caught in. The textured handles give a sturdy grip, and the balance is extremely precise. The ice-hardened straight edges will stay sharp longer.
