For this post, I have put together a collection of the best steak knives currently available.
UPDATED: August 1, 2019.
Dig into your favorite cut of beef with this cutlery for everyday use. Quality blades should have a “full metal tang”, meaning the blade continues to the end of the handle, making it a more durable and likely longer-lasting. This can mean a handle shaped as a continuous piece of forged metal or another material such as wood riveted to the tang.
Something to also keep in mind, typically you should avoid placing knives with wooden handles in the dishwasher. So if hand washing is a deal-breaker you may want to go with a metal or ABS handle.
The following steak knives use high quality materials to tackle even the biggest meals.
