Wusthof makes a great kitchen knife set and steak knives for a reasonable price.

X3 for Wusthof. Shun is another excellent brand but they are fairly pricy.

Any ol cheap steak knife will cut a nice tender steak and it'll taste the same. Then again, if your one to take pictures of your food prior to ingestion then I guess you better upgrade!

If I was to eat it like a normal person I may just choose something with a Ken Onion design.

Been looking for a set of non serrated as well. I got a decent knife block set, but the serrated steak knives that came with it are awful.

Wusthof makes a good one and bass pro had them really cheap a while ago. For non serated look into shun but those will cost you.

For a great non-serrated knife, look at Laguiole. I have a set of their steak knives and they are fantastic knives with a neat history.

as long as it is sharp and not serrated, I'm for it.

I use a set from Chicago cutlery that my FIL got us a few years back - they stay sharp and do the job well, and not serrated.

I agree if you're eating off of a cutting board or paper plate. But I don't see any straight blade maintaining an edge for long if you're using it on a ceramic (harder material) plate.

I really like these. They hold and edge and touch up quickly with steel.

I buy non serrated so easier to put edge back on. Amazon has a few to choose from without breaking the bank. I hang them on a magnet knife holder in my kitchen

I have a set of Henckels, they've been good for years.

Last year, I got a set of Victorinox steak knives. They are hands down, the finest steak knives ever. Scary sharp, and hold their edge. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LRYQ2A...osi&th=1&psc=1 Not too expensive either.

My folks have a set of Wusthof, and they will not stay sharp.

Why so much hate for a serrated edge for a steak knife? We have a set of JH Henckels that are serrated. I love them.

I am a big fan of Cold Steel Kitchen knives. The edges are amazing and price to value to performance is great. Only bad part, no dishwasher because of the handles. Soft rubber.

Someone got us a set of cutco table knives and they’re incredibly good. They’re serrated but no sharp points on the serrations. It cuts the meat instead of ripping it. Holds up against ceramic plates unlike a straight edge. Lifetime sharpening. Though I’ve had mine for 3 years and still every bit of nice as the day I got them. Mine go in the dishwasher too.

Usually I do cut my steak on a cutting board into slices with one of my chefs knives and then transfer to a plate in manageable slices. Still use the steak knives on the ceramic for cutting bite sized pieces, but I also sharpen my knives frequently to keep them in shape.

Their “gourmet” line is the lowest line they have, and it shows. I’m quite particular about my knives, and I’ve been extremely pleased with them. The Classics are a significant improvement over the gourmets though.

When I bought my set 4 years ago I went downstairs and touched them all to my Wicked Edge sharpening system. Spent 5+ hours getting all the knives exactly where I wanted them, and have only touched them to the included steel since then. They all stay shaving sharp at all times with nothing more than 3-4 strokes to the steel since. That’s pretty impressive to me considering I use them constantly.
