So many steak knives scream “steak knife!” and really assert themselves on the place setting, looking like an exaggeration. Not their fault: their work just can’t be done by butter knives. Still, many of them seem like aspiring hunting knives, which makes for a weird fit at the table.

This knife solves all of that. Sharp and streamlined, you can trust it to handle all your tableside cutting needs with ease and it’s great for paring, too. The jaunty orange handle really sealed the deal for us.
