I am looking to get a nice set of steak knives.  Where to start?

    Remember you are cutting on a plate and not a cutting board, so serated is better than straight edge. I'm a Wustof fan, however most of the steaks I cook on the Egg need only a fork, or at most a butter knife to cut. Shun also makes some nice steak knives, and if money is no object, check out William Henry Knives out of Oregon.

    Not necessarily

    Picked up a nice Shun 4 piece SS nonserrated steak knife set with box for $150 on woot several years ago.  Plates are acacia wood. 

    More of a wow factor than anything, guests appreciate using Japanese steel when introduced.  And I can easily bring them back to sharper than new with Chosera stones on the Apex.

    On a regular plate, it's a waste, Chicago Cutlery would suffice.

    @Focker - gotta love woot!

    We have a Wustof set that's nice - full tang, holds an edge well, reasonable price.  Shun is definitely more blingy.

    Keeping your knives sharp, regardless of what brand, is the most impressive feature of any steak knife.
