I made a mistake in purchasing these. I did not realize their size or the serrated edge.
These knives are just what they say. Steakhouse knives. Don't get me wrong. If they are what you are looking for then they are very good knives for the price, as Chicago Cutlery usually is. But:
These are very much like what you would find in an inexpensive steakhouse. Better even. They are certainly not dinning room knives. They may qualify for casual in-house use. They are quite nice for outdoor steak grilling time.
The handle is large and thick and just over 5 inches long. A ½ inch larger than on the Chicago Cutlery Centurion 8 inch Chef Knife. The blade is just under 5 inches long. It is quite wide from edge to the back of the blade, 1- 1/16 inch. So wide that they will not fit into the steak knife slots on my knife holder. The last half of the blade is serrated. (No true steak knife should have a serrated edge.) Serrated blades do not cut, they saw and tear meat. The advantage of serrated is that they rarely have to be sharpened and they will still saw. These knives do not come very sharp, but because of the serrations, will do ok,
I wish I had a grinder so I could grind down the blade to a more household size, and get rid of that serrated edge. I don't know what to do about the giant handle. While they can be used for the household, they just don't look right for that purpose.
If you eat a lot of steak and other meats, and want a heavy-duty knife that you don't have to sharpen, this is the knife for you. Well made, excellent value.
I'd prefer something just as sturdy, but a little smaller and dishwasher-safe.
After using these knives for over a year I prefer them over my smaller steak knives. These are definitely my go-to knives when I want something powerful enough for a thicker or tougher piece of meat, but I also usually grab them for regular steaks, chicken, etc. as well even though they _are_ a bit overkill. I even use these in the kitchen when I need a short, sturdy and sharp blade. The blades have stayed nice and sharp after 100+ uses. The handles have faded a little from twice weekly washing in the dishwasher, but otherwise they have held up great.
Suffice to say they excel in that role, and I have bought them twice now.
All the knives are still in service and doing a great job.
What more can I say? Great value for money! :)
Very good deal!

bought these as a gift for a steak lover and they work great. For the price point, they compare to much higher priced items and perform just as wellPublished on March 27, 2013 by K Lynn
