Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is J.A. Henckels Original Version Steak Knives. I have owned two sets of these for at least 10 years and they still go through a one inch thick sirloin like it is soft butter. I finally got around to reviewing them today because they are on sale for 19.95 a set, 43% off the regular price of 35 bucks.
To me these are the best value in steak knives on the market. No they are not 200 dollar a piece custom knives, but that is not what you want from a steak knife. Here is what I am looking for in a steak knife…
- I do not want to have to sharpen it, it should have serrations that will last
- I want a high quality handle that will not loosen or degrade over years of use
- I want a lifetime warranty, from a solid company because I know I will likely never use it
- I want something built to handle the abuse of a dishwasher even though I won’t use a dishwasher
- I want stainless steel, this is a steak knife I am not going to be starting fires with it
- I want it to look nice, I want a guest to enjoy using it
- I don’t want to spend a ton of money, this is a utility tool, not a display item
Again I have owed two sets of these for well past a decade. I don’t know exactly how long but it predates TSP and that means it is more than 12 years. There are a few negative reviews and I have to say I don’t know what these people are talking about claiming that this knife does not cut well.
One blathered on about carrots, well it is not a chef knife or a pairing knife, it is not for prepping vegetables it is for cutting cooked meat. Not slicing up raw veg or parting our raw full cuts of beef. I’d like to see one of these people draw this “dull knife” across one of their fingers on camera honestly.
Again this is a steak knife and I guess just as some in American no longer comprehend how to use a shovel (we have all seen this have we not) many don’t know how to use a knife. A serrated knife cuts with a sawing motion, back and forth, it is basically a tiny meat saw. I don’t know if these idiots are pushing the damn thing threw like a clever or what. What I do know is these knives work exactly as designed. I can’t imagine a person who can’t cut a steak with one of these being capable of operating literally any form of a tool without assistance and adult supervision. They likely need corks on their forks!
Anyway again they are on sale for 19.99 right now. If you need a damn good set of knives, are capable or operating simple tools and don’t want to spend a fortune on them, these are the ones to get and now is a great time to get them. So check out the J.A. Henckels Original Version Steak Knives today. Odds are a decade from now they will still be serving you well.
