[Amazon.ca] Messermeister Avanta 4-Piece Fine Edge Steak Knife Se - $49.42 (50% off)

Was looking for value, but not cheap, steak knives and came across these. Currently at the lowest price according to CCC.

This is for "fine edge, brown pakkawood" option.

Rated their pick for best steak knife set according to Wirecutter/Serious Eats (and others ) due to price performance ratio and has strong reviews on Amazon

Won "Best Overall" steak knife set on the following lists:

https://www.seriouseats.com/2019/08/the ... nives.html
https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-steak-knife-set/
https://www.thebreslin.com/best-sharp-steak-knife-set/
https://www.cooktasteeat.com/best-steak-knives/


These are not high end steak knives. They are "mid-range" that punches way above its weight class while being priced at $60 USD
The blade edges on the Messermeister Avanta Pakkawood knives are smooth and very sharp, capable of cutting tough steaks easily. They feature full-tang constructions, which means a single piece of steel forms the blade, bolsters, and handle. This design, which adds to the knife’s strength and weight, isn’t commonly seen in other steak knives at this price.
Currently selling for $60usd on Amazon.COM, so ~$50cdn (or $35usd) sounds like good price and thought I'd share.

In for 2. I like the handles. I don't think I have anything made with Pakkawood around the house. A little reseach tells me Pakkawood is an engineered wood used almost exclusively for knife handles where extreme durability is required. Cool.

Have a set at home, is not perfect but overall the price performance ratio is very high. Nicely weighted, feels great in hand and are staying really sharp.
Just got another another set.

This will be my first set of pakkawood as well, but I've always thought that pakkawood just means plasticized handle with wooden look lol

Shun also uses pakkawood on their knives, so it can't be that bad right?

Seems to be a good value, what turns me off is when German/Japanese soundings brands offer Chinese made product, while emphasizing German/ Japanese origin of steel, like you wouldn't notice where it is actually made.
Just my take, will wait for a good deal on German/Japanese made steak knives. Peace.

I cut my Waygu steaks with a butter knife. Just buy better cuts of meat and you won’t need these knives.

Looks like a great set, I will say though my favourite way to serve steak has been to cut all of the steak after cooking into strips and serving family style, unless it's tenderloins or ribeye.

When manufacturers promote a product using the term “German stainless steel”, go ahead and click that back button.

I am also wary of the same thing (btw, not just Chinese manufacturers doing that, see Haagen Daaz and Bulova)

However, I am now considering these knives as Serious Eats did rank them as a top knife! https://www.seriouseats.com/2019/08/the ... nives.html
