    Default Mora Steak Knives

    Ran across these this morning. Been needing to replace my steak knives. Might also try one for a woods knife, not being a big fan of the scandi grind. These are flat ground.

    Holy cow. Wonder why it's $125 a piece when you could just use the classics for $20. Even looks the same.

    Looks like they are hand made and not your typical machine made, high output stuff.

    Sounds like more of a collectors thing. Id pay a few hundred bucks for a good block with some good cutlery, but not for 2 steak knives when there are so many quality ones for far cheaper.

    Thanks, Got'em under consideration. I am trying to get away from serrated so I can sharpen 'em!

    My "kitchen knife set" does not match what most of the retailers think is a kitchen knife set.

    I snagged a knife block form some unknown source back in the dim reaches of time and have filled it with a mix of Forishner, Opinel, Old Hickory and Old Forge cutlery that suits my needs.

    It's a real mess but it works for me.

    It was sort of amusing to find that the people at America's Test Kitchen feel about the same way I do and do not recommend a "Set", but promote a universal block and three or four high quality blades that will do about any job.

    I often joke with my British friends that if I lived over there I might not be able to carry a lock blade pocket knife but I would own the best set of Henkel kitchen knives money could buy, and sheaths to carry them in!

    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    ^^^^^This^^^^^

    You can buy brand new Old Hickory knives at very reasonable prices. https://ontarioknife.com/cutlery/old-hickory Buy individually, or a set (page 1) and there are a couple that would make good steak knives on page 2.

    I have the Cold Steel knife set and like it. I have another set more in line with what Kyrat said as well. It sort of grew out of knives I like.

    I'm probably the wrong one to ask about kitchen knives! I'm a chef so my taste in kitchen knives probably runs a little ritzier than most would consider. I will say though that all my kitchen knives are Japanese. Better to have two or three good ones than a whole block full of junkers that you don't need and won't use.
