Choosing The Right Steak Knife

When choosing the right steak knife for your needs, several factors come into play. At Samuel Staniforth, we recommend that you consider the following tips before making an informed decision:

Material - When it comes to selecting your steak knife,  remember to select high-quality stainless steel blades. These are durable, resistant to corrosion and maintain a sharper edge over time. 

Type -  You’ll need to decide between a serrated or straight-edge knife based on your preference. Serrated knives are ideal for tough cuts whereas straight-edge knives offer clean and precise cuts. Most people choose a steak knife with a so-called ‘full tang’ construction. All this means is that the knife extends all the way into the handle. Such a construction makes the knife very solid and durable. 

Handle Design - Always opt for a comfortable and ergonomic handle that provides a secure grip and allows for precise cutting motions. 

Length - Consider the length of the knife based on the thickness of the steaks you typically enjoy. Generally, a longer blade suits larger cuts, while a shorter blade works well for smaller steaks. 

Aesthetics - Remember to choose a steak knife that aligns with your style and compliments your dining table. Consider factors such as handle material, design and overall aesthetics. 

Round or Pointed Tip - In our range of steak knives you’ll find blades with a pointed tip and blades with a rounded tip. More often than not, steak knives have a pointed tip (this is the blade shape of a ‘real’ steak knife). A pointed tip can make it easier to cut through meat and can also be used to cut more precisely and pick up pieces of meat. 

How To Maintain Your Steak Knife 

Maintenance is crucial for steak knives as it can make them last longer. When cleaning, try to avoid using aggressive detergents and abrasive sponges, as these can cause damage to the blade and handle. Simply wash the knives by hand after each use. In addition, make sure to dry them well and store them in a dry place to avoid rust. 

To prevent damage, storage is equally important for your knives. Use a knife block, magnetic strip or knife guard to protect the blade from bumps and scratches. Generally, you won’t have to sharpen your steak knives very often. If you ever do want to sharpen them, the easiest way to do so is with a sharpening steel or sharpening system suitable for a serrated blade.

Steak Knife FAQs 

What Are The Benefits of a Steak Knife? 

Steak knives have many benefits which make them one of the most versatile additions to your kitchen. These include:  

  • Enhanced dining experience - Whether used for serving or eating meat, steak knives certainly provide a more enjoyable dining experience. 

  • Maintain meat integrity - Steak knives allow you to slice cleanly through all kinds of meat without tearing delicate protein fibres, which preserves flavour and keeps the steak from losing flavourful juices. 

  • Versatility - Whilst steak knives are primarily used for cutting through meat, they can be used to easily slice through a variety of other foods, including fruit, vegetables and bread. 

  • Aesthetics - Steak knife sets have an elegant and stylish design, which adds a touch of sophistication to your dining table. 

  • Precision cutting - Whether serrated or non-serrated, steak knives allow for precise and effortless cutting. Compared to other knives, steak knives require far less effort to cut through meat. 

  • Longevity - Quality steak knives that are cared for properly provide long-term value for your investment, lasting for many years. 

Are You Supposed To Sharpen Steak Knives? 

If your steak knives are not performing, chances are, they’ll need sharpening. A sharper knife is actually safer than a dull knife. At Samuel Staniforth, we recommend that you sharpen your steak knives professionally once a year. Take a look at our knife sharpening products to find out more.  

How Long Should a Steak Knife Be? 

Generally, a steak knife measures about four to six inches long. The thickness will vary depending on the manufacturer. Whilst many restaurants opt for the longer blades, you may find that a shorter blade is the way to go. This is because short steak knife blades are easier to control, producing better quality cuts of your meat. On top of this, there is also an added flexibility to using a shorter blade. At Samuel Staniforth, our “Ecclesall” is perfect for someone looking for a shorter steak knife whereas the “Classic” or “Artisan” are ideal for those looking for a longer steak knife. 

Are Good Steak Knives Worth It? 

Yes.. Yes… and yes again! Whilst buying steak knives may feel like an unnecessary luxury, they are well worth the investment. Steak knives are sturdy, easy on the hands and sharp enough to easily cut through meat without destroying the fibres. Therefore, on top of comfort and convenience, they also help preserve the dish’s quality. Instead of spending time struggling to cut your steak, you can savour the delicious taste whilst the knife does the hard work for you. 

What Is The Difference Between a Steak Knife and Dinner Knife? 

The main difference between a steak knife and a dinner knife is its function and sharpness. Dinner knives are used for portioning every other dish except for meat whereas steak knives are specifically designed for cutting meat dishes. A steak knife is sharper than a dinner knife and is also more versatile.
