Very nice budget knife set made in Japan. Currently available at
Walmart stores for $41.51. In these kind of blocks, I place the steak knives
blade up. Blade down cuts into the wood a bit.
J.A. Henckels is one of the best knife manufactures in the world. This is a nice
19 piece set made in China. The steak knives are stamped not forged which makes me like
them a little less. $229.95 at Amazon.
This set has only 14 pieces, but they are all forged, made in Germany and come
with a lifetime warranty. $299.95 from Cutlery and More. Once again, I would
flip the steak knives when placing in the block.
