    Steak Knives set

    I need a good steak knife set. 4 to 6 maybe. but good ones. I gave away many years old ones i had. two sets. wish i hadn't. so any suggestions. so far reviews on many are terrible, from rust to breaking when dropped.

    For my money Cutco is the best. Mine are over 20 years old and I've never had to have them sharpened (which Cutco will do free of charge) and we use them almost daily.

    I have a set of Wusthof for years. Still sharp. They never go in dishwasher.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    My local Costco just had a guy selling Cutco knives at a big discount. I got a set over 20 years ago and love them.

    My son sold cutco for a while and since I paid for the starter set I got it when he quit selling them I love them all especially the kitchen scissors! you can cut wire with them and not hurt them a bit! I love all my knives, even inherited my mom's after she passed.

    My cutco knives will be 29 years old Christmas and never been sharpened. One of my late Brothers paid 450.00 for them. They are wonderful.

    I have Wusthof and love them. I have had them more than 30 years and still sharp. I never heard of Cutco but reviews sound interesting.

    I usually pick up things like that at a place like Marshalls (discounted items, like seconds). Any brand that’s made in Germany is probably more well-made.

    I bought a set of Cutco knives before I was married. Been married for 43 years. I have had one knife replaced and the whole set sharpened only once in that time. They are worth every penny that you will spend on them.

    Costco sale rep and reinds was demoing knives for my then wife and I. He asked if we knew what a tang was. Then he looked at her and said, Of course, he does, bu tdo you? He'd seen some of my live steel. (swords and daggers) Their knives are very good.

    Cutco, without a doubt. They are expensive, but there is a lifetime guarantee. I just had a few sharpened by Cutco, free of charge - only paid shipping. They replaced a butcher knife that I had from my mother. The knife is 40-50 years old. They have specials , especially during the holidays. Best knives ever.

    Cutco are pricey but really good quality.
    One of our sons got us a set by Henckel- fabulous. Super sharp though, have to be careful!

    Cutco are great.
    I have a butcher block of Kitchen Aid knives dh bought. I usually like Kitchen Aid products (like appliances), and these are stainless steel, look great, but will rust very readily. So disappointed I hardly ever use them. The edges also nick and the flat surfaces pit. That's saying something for knives that only dh occasionally uses. Don't buy those.

    We only have two of the Cutco steak knives left from a set of four....where the other two went is a long story. Husband mentioned a year or so ago that he would like to have a couple more of them but thought they were too expensive even for his wallet. Well thanks to this posting I found them on Amazon and can you guess what he's getting in his stocking this year??

    At one time we had two of the Cutco table knives that were sharp enough to cut anything on your plate, including steak, pork chops etc. Over the years one of the knives disappeared. DH and I have been carefully holding on to the remaining one, not realizing that Cutco was still in business. Thanks to this thread I have purchased a new set of 4 as a Christmas present for DH-- He will be thrilled!
