I don't eat steak, personally, but my husband and kids do, so steak knives are an important tool around our house. We actually didn't have a full set of them before, which is pretty surprising considering steak is one of my husband's favorite foods. So I went ahead and picked this set up because the price was reasonable and the reviews were good. The first thing I did upon receiving them was to see how far the blades would bend to the side. That's always the first thing I do with any new knife or set of knives. I also like to test sharpness by cutting something right away, as well. In this case, I first cut an apple because I had no steak available It easily cut the apple. Then I cut a tomato, and these knives were able to cut the tomato without smashing it, which is a wonderful benefit. When I finally got around to cooking a steak to try the knives on I meant to take a demonstration video, but I forgot. But anyway, the knives easily cut steak as well as other meats. They are good quality and affordably priced. The knives have a simple design that will match well with most flatware. I recommend this knife set to anyone looking for more steak knives.
