What Makes a Good Steak Knife?

The Blade

The blade should be able to cut through even the toughest cut of steak with ease. You shouldn’t have to exert a great deal of energy.

To facilitate this, steak knives often have serrated blade edges. Serrations - particularly large ones - prevent the knife from dulling. Retaining sharpness keeps the knife in excellent condition to perform as desired.

Steak knife blades may also have straight or hollow edges.

The Handle

A sharp steak knife with a poor handle is quite tedious to use. If you aren’t comfortable holding it in your hand, it’s got to go.

Steak knives should have ergonomic handles that are aligned with the shape of your hand. Moreover, the use of high-quality materials ensures that the handles are durable and comfortable to hold.

Wood handles are ideal. But at Dalstrong, we take it up a notch. Our handles aren’t made of just any wood. We use only the finest pakkawood to maintain the highest standards.
