Get the most out of steak night with high quality steak knives

When it comes to tucking into your favourite cuts of meat, opt for a steak knife. . Specially designed to bridge the gap between table knives and kitchen knives, steak knives are sharp enough to ensure a clean, effortless cut while still fitting in with a carefully arranged tablescape. Find the best steak knives to suit your needs (and your decor) right here.

Types of blades used for steak knives

  • Straight edge - Allows for a smooth, clean cut that won’t tear the meat fibres. . While the straight edge will need more sharpening than a serrated edge, the blade is still easy to maintain.

  • Serrated edge - A good, failsafe option, serrated blades stay sharper for longer, and deliver more of a tearing effect. Not only is this ideal for steak and other cuts of meat, but this type of edge can also be used to cut through crusty bread.

  • Hollow edge - This style has measured indentations along the blade’s edge, which creates an air pocket between the hollow edge and the slice, allowing for finer slicing that prevents food from sticking to the blade.

Features to look for in a steak knife

  • Blade style – Choose from serrated, smooth, or hollow blades depending on your preferred cutting style and blade appearance, whether that be rugged and hardy for BBQ purposes or sleeker and more elegant to blend in with more formal dining experience.

  • Quality material - Look for a blade material that is highly durable and able to maintain its sharpness for longer such as hardened stainless steel.

  • Comfortable handle – Try to opt for pistol grip comfort, which keeps your hands from getting sore while slicing into thicker, tougher cuts of meat. Ergonomic handles are shaped to enhance hand comfort as well as prevent slips, making them a key point of difference.

  • Durability – Consider how often you will be using your steak knives and buy quality pieces that will last . If you’ve found a set that is made of rust-resistant stainless steel, reinforced with rivets to keep the blades in place, you’re onto a winner!

Difference between stamped and forged knives

A forged knife is made of a single bar of steel, which is heated and then pounded into shape by a professional craftsman or machine.

A stamped knife is where the blade is "stamped" or cut out from a large sheet of steel, then honed and heat-treated for durability.

Considerations when shopping for a steak knife

  • Budget – Consider how often you will be using your steak knives as well as the usual cuts of meat you eat. As a general rule, a 12 piece steak knife set is a good starting point for entertaining.

  • Function – Ensure the knives are high quality and sharp enough to slice through even the toughest cuts of meat.

  • After-sales services – Warranty periods do vary from brand to brand, so be sure to double check before purchasing for extra peace of mind. Some manufacturers may also offer periodic knife sharpening as a courtesy.

  • Style - There’s no reason a steak knife can’t have some style. Choose from rustic, modern or elegant designs, which you can match to your existing cutlery and kitchen décor.

How to make your steak knife last

  • Clean, dry and store your knife in a safe place after use

  • Sharpen and hone your knives regularly

  • Use a proper chopping board when cutting

  • Use a knife only for its intended purpose

  • Avoid putting steak knives in the dishwasher

The proper way to cut your steak

The best way to cut steak is to slice against the grain of the meat at an angle, following the same direction as the connective tissues. Cutting diagonally will also help your steak retain most of its juices as well as look more appealing on the plate.

Storage solutions for your steak knives set

In-drawer steak knife blocks are a great storage solution as knives can lay flat in a safe manner without knocking other cutlery or utensils in the drawer.

Alternatively, a small knife block is ideal for storing the knives neatly and safely while still maintaining their sharpness.

Clean steak knives with hot soapy water and rinse well before drying off with a tea towel or paper towel. When storing your knives, make sure they are turned upside down in order to protect the sharp edge from damage.

FAQs:

Are serrated knives better for steak?
Serrated knives are considered the best type of blade for cutting steak, offering a clean and effortless slice no matter the cut.

What are the benefits of a stainless-steel steak knife?
Stainless steel is the ideal material for steak knives as well as other types of cutlery as it is strong, durable and long lasting. Stainless steel blades contain less carbon properties than any other metal, which means they stay sharper for longer.
