8-Piece Steak Knife Set These are the best-selling steak knives on Amazon. They're lightweight, sharp, and inexpensive. People should be lining up to buy them, right? Not so fast...

I'm not a big fan of Henckels knives. Poke around on OnlyKnives a bit and you'll start to see a theme emerge. Once high-end Japanese knife makers started introducing their premium steel knives to the market, Henckels kind of got left in the dust.

Their solution? Go down-scale. The introduction of their Eversharp line is a testament to that. Problem is, there are other makers down at that end of the market who are producing excellent quality knives without worrying about withholding high-end features.

That's a lot of mumbo-jumbo to say that you can do better than these knives. Yes, they're popular. Yes, they're inexpensive. But you know what? There are other knives out there that are just as inexpensive that use better materials, will hold a sharper edge longer and look just as good.

Specifically, we recommend the Forschner Steak Knives as our favorite low-cost steak option. Check out our review of that one and you'll see what we mean.

If you do get the Henckels, you'll probably be fine. Henckels has been making knives forever, and it's not like they don't know what they're doing. It's just that I think you can do better.
