Steak Knives: Serrated vs. straight edge

porcelainduck | Dec 5, 2007 02:53 PM

Hi, i'm looking for steak knives as a gift for my parents for Christmas. It seems all the good knives are straight edge. I assumed that serrated would be superior for steak but if these good brands are all straight it must be effective? Do they need to be sharpened often?

I need a set of 4 (6 is ok) for around $60

I've look at the Forschner, Henckels, and also a couple models from Chicago Cutlery (haven't seen this brand before, are they any good?)

My options are a bit limited as i'm in Canada so i can't order form the US. If anyone can answer my straight-edge question i'd appreciate it, and maybe tell me where to get Forschner in Canada?
