Steak knife

The steak is one of the most appreciated pieces by meat lovers and it indeed deserved a dedicated knife: the famous steak knife! Any self-respecting carnivore must own steak knives in his knife set! Why choose the steak knife? These are handy and can be used as table cutlery and flatware as well as a kitchen knife. Not only do they grace your tabletop with their elegance, but they have been thoroughly studied to the smallest detail to effectively slice raw meat. They are marketed with a smooth or riveted blade to cut the meat without tearing it.

Did you know that the iconic steak knives at one point were likely never to exist?

 Cardinal Richelieu was greatly inconvenienced by his guests' manner of cleaning their teeth with sharp knives. He used his influence on King Louis IV to push the later to favor round-headed table knives during meals at the court. This fashion spread like wildfire and knives with sharp blades were only used as kitchen knives, paring knife or vegetable knife.

It was not until the end of the Second World War that steak-loving Americans began marketing the steak knife in its current form. They have since been popularized also in Europe and among the most popular European cutlers we find the Laguiole, Perceval, Victorinox, Thiers, Opinel and Guy Degrenne knives.

Steak knives: an exceptional ergonomic design!

The blade of this type of knife is particularly designed to be sharp enough to cut any type of red and white meat. Its fine and long handle allows a good grip between the thumb and forefinger.

In short whether it is ceramic knives, forged knives, anti-adhesive coating or stainless steel knives, a real steak knife must fulfill two basic requirements:

  1. A smooth or serrated blade that slices all types of meat without damaging them.
  2. A perfect handle for a good grip.

With the fork, they are the essential companions for tasting your steak-fries or your beef bourguignon. To choose the right knife, you have to study the blade. The sturdy stainless steel blade is one of the best of the moment because it does not need regular sharpening, it does not rust and is dishwasher safe and torsion resistant. You will find beautiful stainless steel knife sets from Victorinox and Guy Degrenne among others on AZ Boutique.

The stainless steak knife: a versatile exceptional tool!

These knives have proven themselves not only for tasting all meat dishes but thanks to their ergonomic design they are perfect for effectively cutting other foods such as sausage and even boning to have perfect knife fillet. With a sharp and serrated blade these exceptional knives can replace the bread knife, santoku knife or tomato knife and are as effective as a thrifty, vegetable cutter or mandolin.

They are an excellent alternative to the meat knife and Japanese knives for preparing your gourmet steak, barbecues and prime rib. And if you feel the soul of a sommelier and you do not have a champagne sword, why not try to slash your champagne with a knife? Let's not forget also that they have the privilege of being the only cutlery items which act as a kitchen cutlery and table knife.
