I'm not sure how they provide incredible quality at this price. We love them!
Great quality, nice weight and cuts smoothly. Very happy with the purchase!
Knives are beautiful and feel good. Packaging is a little awkward.
Nice and sharp! Handles are very nice and comfortable.
These were for Christmas and I was pleased to present them to my son in law. Coincidentally, he gifted me one of your carving sets!
Seems to be very good quality and they are very sharp!
Best knives we've ever owned. Slices through steak like butter. Thank you to a great company for swift shipping, good communication and a wonderful product.
The knives are pretty and they are sharp. They were chosen over two other brands. They are the first complete set I have ever owned and we made the right choice.
The fiance lives them. They are so beautiful. The pictures on the site don't do the knives justice. We used them for Christmas dinner. The quality and craftsmanship are excellent. We are very pleased with our purchase and we will be ordering from this company again. Highly recommend.
These are both beautiful and excellent in quality. I didn't even realize just how awful our set of steak knives were until we got these ones! They cut so well and smoothly- I definitely recommend.
Sharp!! Feels good to hold due to the heft and balance. They cut my steaks like they were butter. Price is reasonable for such well made knives. Only wish is that they came with a box or something in order that you don't cut yourself (did I mention they were sharp!?) when reaching into my kitchen drawer.
Love the looks and the craftsmanship!
The knives: Heavy, very sharp, nice look, solid feeling. The buying process: Smooth, non-problematic.
Used for Thanksgiving - nice and sharp to cut through the steak; looked beautiful on the table.
Arrived quickly and work great! So beautiful!
These knives are great new addition to ur household. They're very comfortable to hold and slice very nicely. Very happy with our purchase!
I already owned 8 and bought another 8 for our ranch. These are a great knife for the price.
Perfect! Love them!
beautiful knives for a fraction of the cost of the competition. The quality seems great so far, I'm hoping these will last a lifetime.
Love these knives! I read many reviews before purchasing and I’m not disappointed. Great knife at a great price!
These are excellent knives, especially for the price. The look and feel is very sturdy and polished. Love them!
The best steak knives for the money. Yes you can spend a lot more and get merit badge knives to show your wealth but these are better than some of those so get these and buy a merit badge bottle of something instead.
Although I did not buy my Advanta steak knives directly from Messermeister, I was assured of their quality from my long time (now retired) knife merchant (messermeister is the German translation). I have had them for approximately 2 years, and with proper care, I expect them to last as long as my premium branded (Messermeister and Wusthof) kitchen knives.
Easy shopping experience, great shipping, amazing steak knives.
I own 12 of these steak knives and have gifted 8 of them. They are sharp, and able to be regularly sharpened with ease. They have a great heft to them. They look good with a fancy table setting of a regular dinner. 8 months in to owning them, I anticipate a lifetime of use and appreciation
Great Father’s Day present - no more sawing away on our steaks! Fantastic and responsive customer service also!
This was a wedding gift.
These are the best knives that I have ever owned .
My husband and I bought these knives after much research. They are very high quality and a joy to hold and in the hand. We loved them so much we bought my parents a set and the gift was a huge hit.
They are elegant and fit my hand like it was made for me. My steak cut like it was made of butter. Wonderful design and I wonder why it took me so long to buy this. The whole process from purchase from web site to delivery to my door was seamless. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from this seller again.
Knives do what they are supposed to.
I can’t believe I waited until I’m 56 years old to buy a nice set of steak knives! These feel so nice in the hand with a little heft to them. And they look so nice too. Now I won’t be embarrassed when I have people over for a meal that requires steak knives. No more ugly steak knives for me!
Quality for the cost
great balance in hand good sharp edge and they look good too
Beautiful aesthetic and wonderful functionality of all of their products we’ve tried thus far.
They perform very well. Easy to order and quick delivery.
We started with a bread knife and loved it so much we’ve continued to build our set, replacing our well worn knives from other brands.
Recently got the beautiful magnetic knife block storage - love it and have received many compliments on it. A clean and easy way to store knives.
Very sharp knives that are both beautiful and comfortable to hold
Lovely knives. Sharp and balanced. Feel substantial in the hand without feeling heavy or unwieldy. Deducted a point as one of the four has a slight mismatch where the metal tang meets the wood handle. It small, not easily noticed visually, but you can feel it, and once you notice it, you can't unfeel. it.
Durable and sharp. I am very pleased. My sons wash them by hand.
We're very happy with these knives. They're handsome, well-made, sharp, and feel good in the hand; they were also very reasonably priced. How did we wait so long to buy steak knives??
we like it . good quality. good buy.
I absolutely luv your beautiful stylish knifes! they’re sharp, and yet lightweight which’s makes them easy to handle. Everyone who’ve seen them ask where I got them.
GREAT knives...even my wife loves them!
Beautiful knives. Wonderful in the hand.
So amazing how sharp they’re. It cuts the steak like a butter.
Order was delivered promptly from a far ways away which was nice because it was a gift! Knives were everything we expected and some . High quality and the reviews are no joke! 5.5/5 for value. Thanks Messermeister!
I ordered 2 sets and only one knife handle had a misaligned rivet that caused a raised area. Other than that they look good.
would add velvet packageing but overall good
Beautiful knives and very sharp!
I've been using these steak knives for a few weeks and the reviews don't lie: the quality is superb and significantly better than other knives at this price point. I've received several compliments on them (including one from my impossible to impress mother-in-law!). Would highly recommend them!
This is the best steak knife on your plate. It slices through any steak like butter! I’m planning to order six more for myself and several more for Christmas gifts this year. It would be a very well received housewarming gift !
The knives are great. They are comfortable to hold, cut all types of food, not just meat well. The problem is when buying only 4 knives the blade guards must be purchased separately. I knew this when I purchased the knives. What I didn't know was that the guards would be out of stock for what seems like forever. I do not recommend purchasing these knives without the guards or you will end up storing them in their box or damaging the edges in a drawer. What good is a great knife if you can't protect it from damage?
Amazing knives, they are razor sharp and great quality.
Excellent balance, feel of handle wood upscale, keen sharp.
Very happy by them. Very sharp and good look.
The wooden handle is very sensitive to water and needs to be treated with EXTREME care. This makes it too much of a hassle to own. The wood is already splintering and the knives will become unusable soon.
This is a great knife set excellent workmanship will buy from Messermeister again.Thanks
Love these! Sharp, makes cutting steak or other meat super easy.
Good balance, comfortable to hold...suggest getting a hand held sharpener to maintain the edge
I've been using these for a couple of months now. As other reviewers noted, the pins on the handles seemed to protrude, with quite sharp edges. Very quickly with use and with handwashing, the wood seems to have swelled slightly and now the pins are completely flush. The blades are super sharp and the knives are comfortable to hold. Despite those initial misgivings, I'd happily purchase these again.
Very impressive quality. They are initially very sharp, but some of them lost that sharpness with not much use. Easy enough to resharpen.
Great looking knives and very sharp. Looks great but slightly rough edges where the metal and wood meet.
These are really nice steak knives. I got the fine edge - pakkawood ones. They are very sharp and cut through steak beautifully. I can't tell how long the sharpness will last yet. That also likely depends on how one uses them. Some reviews mention raised rivets. I guess if you look super close you'll find some but you won't notice any raised rivets with normal use. I almost didn't buy them because of that but glad I did. They are a great value and look great too.
I love this steak knife set. We use them a lot. They have held up well.
Magnificent knives! A great gift. Beautiful, durable, great professional reviews.
The only way these could cut a steak easier would be if they were mini lightsabers.This glide through a steak and make even the toughest shoe leather seem tender. 5 stars would buy again.
Purchased two sets. Rec’d very quick. Beautifully crafted. Cut through steak like butter. Extremely happy.
If you are in the market for steak knives, then you know most straight-edged steak knife sets usually go for $100-300+ dollars.Pros:+ Straight-edges!!! Cheap serrated blades tear into meat and can't be re-sharpened. They usually have to be tossed when they get dull.+ Great value/price! Try and find another straight edge set that even comes close to the quality and looks.+ Great looking comfortable pakkawood handles+ Full-tang construction+ Good weightCons- The edges are a little inconsistent but can be easily fixed with a sharpening stone
I bought the brown pakkawood set. The edge is good. But what made me return this knife set is the poor craftsmanship of the handle. The tang and the rivets all protrude from the wooden handle. All four knives in the set have the same issue. Additionally, when set down on the table, the blade tip will tilt down and touch the table surface. I bought a set of steak knives by Sky Light for comparison. They have a polymer (synthetic) handle and did not have the problem with the tang and rivets. And they are balanced as such so the blade stays off the table. I can't comment on the handle qualities of the other knives in this series.
I got the pakkawood handle version, though seriously thought about the stainless steel. In the end, the pakkawood handle version was just too beautiful, and a previous review that said the pictures don't do it justice was definitely right! Several reviews talked about the rivets and the tang not being flush with the wood, and while we can't see that just by looking, we can feel it. However, that is very minor issue and I am glad I didn't pass on these due to that. I do wish the handle was just a bit longer - this is mainly why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. It fits relatively comfortably in my hand even though it's a tad short for me, but my husband's hands are larger and so it's much more noticeable to him. Although, he says it is still okay since it is for eating with rather than cooking. All in all, I really like this set and am excited to get to use them.
Only had these knives for 2 weeks so far but they are sharp and cut very well. As other reviews have mentioned the handle isn't perfect, some of the rivets could have been sanded a little more flush with the wooden handle. But overall, it is a nice set of knives for the price. They have good weight and are balanced nicely.
Had some expensive serrated steak knives that tore steaks up instead of cutting them. So I wanted a normal super sharp blade and this is it! Nice weight, attractive handles and SHARP! Love them!
Been using these on an almost daily, twice a day basis for several months. They are very sharp, maintain their edge well and look beautiful, although we do wash them only by hand. The price is reasonable. I bought another set as a gift.
SE VEN MEJOR FISICAMENTE QUE EN FOTO
You have to set your expectations correctly. These are not premium knives and it is wrong to judge them that way. These steak knives do their job pretty well. the blade is thin and will take a decent edge. The fit and finish of the handles is uneven. In my examples the scales are undersized and the rivets are not sanded flush. It's not terrible, but it is annoying. For an inexpensive knife, I'm not surprised. If handle finish is important to you, consider the stainless handled version. It doesn't have handle scales.Ergonomically, the handles are slim. If you prefer the "Aussie" thick handled knives popularized by some family steak houses, you should look elsewhere. That said the handle is more substantial than the Wusthof steak knives I bought 15 years ago for much more money.Steak knives are a special category of "beater" knife. They need to be tough but pretty. These are not food prep knives. You are going to cut meat on ceramic dishes. That task would be severe mistreatment of a good knife. One of my $500 Japanese Gyutos or my hand made Kramer 52100 chef's knife will slice a tomato paper thin, but I would murder you if you if you used it on a plate instead of a cutting board. The edge would chip, and you would probably scratch the plate. For $12 per knife, these do fine.Overall, I like these knives. If I still like them after a year, I might pay a guy $80 per knife to put some nice hardwood scales on the handles. That's what it costs to have a craftsman hand finish a knife.It goes without saying, but you should not put knives in the dishwasher. The detergents corrode the edge on good steel very quickly and the temperatures can warp the scales. If you have wood handles, they won't last long.
What can I say? They cut steaks great and have held up just fine after my 6-7 uses.
Have not used them yet but they seem to a great knife and very sharp
These knives make you wonder how so many companies get away with selling those stupid and worthless serrated blades as steak knives. These are so sharp and so perfect for enjoying a nice steak with. They feel sturdy, they look great, and they cut perfectly. I'd use them for paring and slicing fruits and veggies too if I didn't want to keep them for just steaks. The one minor annoyance is that they cannot be cleaned in the dishwasher, but as a trade-off for keeping them sharp, it's little effort.
These knives are great. They are very sharp, feel comfortable in your hand, and are well made with the tang extending to the end of the handle. They are also very stylish but classic looking with the brown wood handle.
Exceptional quality for the price
These knives are great and preferable to the serrated edge style. They are comfortable in the hand, easy to wash, and make a great gift set.
This was the first time I bought nice steak knives. So I don't have a lot of reference, however:They look great. My husband has accidentally left them sitting in a sink full of water over night and they did not warp. He also put them through the dishwasher at least once - no warping. Though I don't recommend either of these, as they are wooden.I'm not at all bothered by the fact that the metal screw does not sit perfectly flat against the wood, it's raised by less than 1 mm. Some reviewers were bothered by this. The screw's edge is not sharp. You can't notice it unless you go looking for it, as I did due to other reviewers complaints about this.However, I do find I need to sharpen them, even after only about 5 weeks of use. They sharpen easily and nicely. I sharpen them myself using a non-professional knife sharpener and it does the job nicely.I would buy again.
These steak knives look fine, are easy to hold and have an adequates edge but are not as sharp as advertised out of the box. Haven't sharpened them yet so I don't know how sharp they can be. The blades of these steak knives are too wide to fit in my knife block where my previous steak knives fit which is personally disappointing. The plastic container they came in is definitely not what I would consider acceptable for gifting. Keeping them but not excited about them.

Good for cutting tomatoes onions good we’re cutting fruit
First the positives: These arrive sharp and look good from a distance.Negatives: The pins are clearly worked separately from the rest of the handle, they stick out slightly from the scales (sides of the knife handle), same with the pommel and the exposed sides of the tang. The wood used is good, it's rosewood stained at least, I have no way of knowing if it's actual rosewood but don't actually care much, it looks nice and has a tight grain.Second, don't let the name fool you, these are Chinese knives. No idea what steel is used, but I give them a good once-over with a honing rod after each use and they stay sharp so far. At least they aren't "micro-serrated".In short: they're decent, but not great; I wish the manufacturer would fit the scales first and then work the handle to shape. They would be a lot better, but probably more expensive.
A bit flimsy, but ok value.
Nice knife for the price. Work well

Nice, affordable, quality steak knives.
These are gorgeous and work wonderfully. They hold an edge nicely, and because they are not serrated they are easy to sharpen when needed. The color and shine of the handle does fade with a few washings, but I'm sure I could do more to help preserve the look of the wood. I'm very satisfied with the quality, performance, and appearance.
Good quality at good price
Loved the feel in the hand and the sharpness right out of the box. They are a major upgrade from the “wedding gift special” Chicago cutlery set that we were using before. Each knife weighs about 95 grams and is well balanced. Not as bulky or showy as some of the steakhouse knives you will use in a restaurant, but seem more refined and are comfortable to use for a range of hand sizes.I have the Wusthof ikon chefs knife, which I enjoy using, but it seems this set is a far better value than the Wusthof ikon steak knife set would be at 3x the price. The only place these may fall short of the Wusthof set is in the way the handle material marries seamlessly with the steel; you can feel the transition and the rivets on the messermeister set, but with the ikons it is almost perfectly flush. That said, there are rough edges on the handle and they seem well made.
Used for a steak dinner.Very sharp!!
Excellent sharp blade. Bought for dinner party. Look good as well as high quality blade
Very good addition to kitchen. Be careful to not cut yourself while watching very sharp!
These things are sharp
These are pretty on the table and sharp enough to work. Dressing the edge is easy enough. My only objection is that the handles are sized for a boot knife. That makes them wholly unsuitable for our ritual slaughter of mammoths but otherwise, they'll be ok.
