    Steak Knives

    I need a set of steak knives. Not an entire set of knives, just steak knives. Wayfair has a lot of Henckels at pretty deep discounts right now, just wondering what you guys think. I can't afford really expensive ones at the moment, so I am just looking for a serviceable set. Thanks in advance.

      Having kids, we didn't want to invest in high cost steak knives either. We went with the Chicago Cutlery steak knives, model B144. They're pretty cheap, but still pretty decent quality. I'd recommend them.

        These have gotten good reviews. I prefer serrated steak knives over the straight edge type myself. I like the way they cut a little better. 6 for $22.00 and there’s a 5% off coupon. German steel.

          I actually the Amazon Basics 8 piece set for the same price and they are actually pretty alright. I have some really nice chef's knives, but for steak knives I cheaped out and I'm not disappointed. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

          Are they right or left hand?
          Looks like just what I need.

          bbqLuv they are Ambidextral, they don't care which hand you use


          Edit: Don't have any clue what the one star review folks received, but mine are sharp and have never shown any signs of rust.

        I have some nice Wusthof steak knives (and the rest of the set), and I prefer the cheapie no name steak knives that I have had since I was 21. Not so with the other knives, though. Maybe it is because I am trying to achieve different things when I am cutting ingredients for cooking that I want to turn out just right as opposed to cutting something just to fit inside my mouth, that is already done, in a civilized enough manner at home after a few beers.

          My Wusthof steak knives are straight edge and not serrated. I’m with you Mark, I prefer regular old serrated steak knives better. It just feels weird cutting a steak with the Wusthoffs on a ceramic plate.

          Panhead John, you nailed it, my preference is serrated. I should have said that.

          Panhead John I agree, using a nice plain edge knife on a ceramic surface just feels so wrong.

        klflowers These are really just sharp table knives. Just pick a set that looks nice. Even the cheapest plastic knives cut steak.

          Maybe your steaks, but I have cooked a few that needed to be cut into little bitty pieces in order to chew them lol

        I have these and love them. $49 on Amazon. I paid $59 back in 2018.

          I picked these up from Marshall’s or Winners a few years back.
          They get after it in the meat cutting dept
          Price on the box says $34.99 but I’m pretty sure they were marked down to half that price on clearance

          I just go to the Outback restaurant and tell my wife, sorry, to bring a big purse.

            I uh, used to have a full cutlery set from various restaurants but mainly Outback. To be fair I did ask if I could have most of them, and generally the staff and even a few times the manager said go for it. Sadly the new outback knives suck, wish I still had the old school ones. The new ones are glorified serrated butter knives. Longhorn will sell you a set for pretty cheap if they still do that, much better steak knives IMO

          Been very happy with these. They’re very similar to the AR logo’s set. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

            I think all suggestions so far have been good. I don’t care so much for brand name, but size. I did buy the ones that are sold with the AR logo, but sold them again. Main reason? They’re HUGE. I’m a big guy, with BIG hands, and these just feel overly clumsy on the table. Not so much by weight (they’re light), but try fitting them in with any fork or plates? They just look displaced. The suggestions so far all seem to be smaller in physical dimensions which gets thumbs up from me.

            Perhaps a slightly different angle from an advice perspective, just wanted to add my 2 cents.

            And yes, I prefer serrated knives too

              My suggestion goes with a serrated blade…
              steak knives double as Amazon package openers…
              staple removers…
              electrical tape cutters…
              various style screwdrivers…
              pruners…
              and yes, occasionally cutting steak…….
              the serrated blade will still cut the meat on steak night…

                If you've got a restaurant supply shop nearby those hefty, wood handle, stainless serrated blade, 5" "steakhouse" style run about $15 a dozen.

                  Thanks Unc, there is a restaurant supply store that I frequent. I'll check with them. I take back some if what I said about you back during the Bronco conversations...

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
