Take Steak to the Next Level with the Best Steak Knives

Just picture it: A sharp steak knife slicing through a tender piece of red meat like it’s a stick of slightly softened butter. Is there any image more satisfying? A crisp, sharp blade and a comfortable, balanced slicing angle have the power to transform any dining experience, which is why a set of high-quality steak knives is a non-negotiable for any home chef or grill master. At Sur La Table, we carry steak knife sets by legacy brands used in the world’s finest steak houses, including Wüsthof, Victorinox, Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Miyabi, Shun, Lamson, Dubost and Global.

From Wüsthof to Shun: Heritage Steak Knife Sets

Which steak knives are the best? Any chef will want to start by considering a set of Zwilling J.A. Henckels or Wüsthof steak knives. Consistently rated among the best steak knives in the world, these two German knife-makers have both been in business for over a century and consistently set the tone for sharp, premium knives at an accessible price point. And they rarely disappoint. Both Wüsthof and J.A. Henckels steak knives are constructed from high-carbon, rust-resistant stainless steel. Wüsthof knives are known for being slightly sharper and harder, while J.A. Henckels tend to be a bit more durable.

Cutting-edge Japanese steak knives by MIYABI, Shun Cutlery and Global are not to be overlooked by serious chefs. Japanese knives tend to be a bit thinner—and therefore sharper—than their European counterparts, and are often hand-honed and refined for exceeding quality. No matter if you prefer Western- or Japanese-style steak knives, Sur La Table has a set that honors your budget, preferences and aesthetics. Shop exquisite wood-handled knives in elegant finishes and silhouettes worthy of your family’s most prized recipes.
