Victorinox steak knives, Victorinox knife setby Perry Knife Works Buy Online Knives A good steak knife is one that is sharp, well-balanced and sturdy. Since they are used on the plate and not on the cutting board, they should look and feel elegant but comfortable at the same time. A steak knife set can have different types of blades and handles. Here is everything that you should keep in mind when buying a steak knife set for your kitchen:
Good balance: “Balance” is often overlooked when choosing a steak knife. Buyers often look at the blade to determine how sharp the knife is. Although the sharpness of the blade is an important factor in choosing a steak knife, it is also important to consider the balance of the knife for making the right selection. If you are buying a steak knife online, here are a few things to consider ensure that the knife has a good balance:
• The handle should look heavy or proportional to the blade
• The blade should be in a straight position coming from the handle or at an angle
• The knife should look comfortable to hold
Blade type: Choosing a particular blade type is all about your personal preference. There are three types of blades to choose from-
• Straight edge: Straight edge blades offer smooth clean cuts and are ideal for carving meat. However, these blades need to be sharpened more often.
• Serrated edge: A blade with a serrated edge is used to cut through crusts like roasts and breads. They tend to stay sharp longer than other edges due to the presence of small exposed edges. For example, the Victorinox knife set comes with a serrated edge and a round tip (for safety). Blades with serrated edges are not recommended for cutting meat fibers.
• Hollow edge: This type of knife has measured indentations along the edge. When you are cutting or slicing food items, an air pocket is created between the blade edge and the food, preventing food from sticking to the blade.
Fit of the knife: A steak knife should have a fine fit i.e. all the parts should be put together tightly and no gaps should appear between the handles and the blade. A knife with a good fit offers more strength and rigidity. Moreover, liquids and contaminants will not infiltrate the handle.
