Finally, a steak knife with a solid feel and no flex in the blade. Heavy duty with a masculine feel.

CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION
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 wanted knives with a solid feel, but these are overkill for our purposes. These are about 4x the weight of our standard steak knives. The blade is 1" wide at the base and 1/16" thick. The stainless steel blade is 5" long with large serrations. The black plastic "polymer" handle is also 5" long and is 5/8" thick, best suited to larger hands. The handle seems the same sort of material as our older Revereware pot handles - which are long lasting but fade if washed in the dishwasher. These might do the same; the box says "hand wash recommended." Unlike some higher quality knives, the metal reinforcements in the handle protrude very slightly. These are suitable for a large steak at least 1.5" thick. They are overkill for a 1" or less steak, or a tender cut.

I'd prefer something just as sturdy, but a little smaller and dishwasher-safe.

Update 7/28/2011

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.

I am not really a steak eater, but I bought these knives as all purpose kitchen knives, for vegetables etc.
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! :)

These are larger than i thought they would be, though someone did mention that they were very large, like steak house restaurant's version would be. They are sharp, cut well thru the meat and I like the larger handle, it balances very well.
Very good deal!

These knives are similar to the knives you are given at Outback, etc...except even BETTER. At nearly 12 inches long they have great weight and a nice look. Durable feel, rivets through the handle and plenty of power for a 32 ounce porterhouse. Hope to enjoy for years to come.

We bought several sets of these for ourselves and several for friends. W've used our original set for several years now. They are hefty and have a great feel when cutting. We use them for all kinds of cutting--not just steak/meat. They are just the right size in both handle and blade. So far none of the handles have become loose. We've washed them in the dishwasher some, but usually by hand. The serations are a little hard to sharpen, but not bad with a sharpening rod. Great wedding or housewarming gift.

I ordered these knives thinking they were the same as Chicago Cutlery's Walnut Tradition line, which has wooden handles and straight-edge blades. These Centurion knives are quite large, almost the size of boning knives, have black handles and serrated edges. They work quite well, but I would have preferred the others. I have used Chicago Cutlery products for many years and consider them excellent knives for the money.
