**see packaging options for steak knives at the bottom under TWO SLIDESHOWS.
I have made my custom steak knives for fine Michelin starred restaurants, all over the globe.
Three are; Atelier Crenn in S.F. , Willows Inn on Lummi Island, Washington and Burnt Ends, in Singapore.
See slide show below for latest work for Atelier Crenn in San Francisco.
I cannot afford, at the above price discounts, to offer more of a discount for orders of more than 12 steak knives.
I can make the handle woods match, or offer an assortment of woods. If you would like exotic woods, I can order that in.
I can also make them with thicker steel or a longer/shorter blade for an additional charge.
Current price breakdown for Steak knives;
Each steak knife has a 1 inch x 4 inch blade and is made from 1084 high carbon tool steel. All steak knife handles are 5″ long.
I can and have made many steak knives with 1″ x 5″ blades. Each is $99.00 retail. Discounts below are the same and you can run the discount numbers on your own or contact me for more design options, such as 1.5″ width with 5″ blade.
Steak knives discounts are;
One 1″ x 4″ kitchen knife retail price is $ 83.00.
4 – 6 pieces = 10% off the retail price.
Here is the math (you can run the numbers for how many you want);
Retail is 6 times $83.00 = $498.00
10% discount means $49.80 discount or 6 for $445.00.
8 – 12 pieces = 15% off the retail price.
8 pieces retails costs $664.00. 15% off is $100.00 off of 8 for $564.00
Slideshow below; Steak knife concept set designed by and for Atelier Crenn of San Francisco. 20 steak knives are stored in two custom made lidded boxes, which remain behind the scenes. Individual trays carry 4 knives at a time to tables. Trays and boxes were made in collaboration with ⇒ Jens Sehm, Ashland based furniture maker. ⇐
For further description, see slideshow.
10 of 20 steak knives in one of 2 nesting boxes to 'house' the knives - 4" Steak knives are carbon steel, with one of 4 woods- Maple, Black Walnut, Madrone or Hickory.
Brass bolsters, double black .031 spacers surround copper spacers.
Box is made from Black Walnut and Cherry Wood. Finished using Lacquer.
2 boxes house all 20 steak knives.
There are two trays that will hold 4 steak knives each, which are carried to each table as needed. See next slides.
12 piece Steak knife set, with 300 year old English walnut handles & custom box. - Steak knives are a custom size of 5" x 1.5" with 5.25" long handles. Box is made from flamed or tiger striped Black Walnut wood with removable
tray insert. See next slide for a shot of the steak knives on their own.
If you want alternatives to a custom made box, there are many to choose from. There are all sorts of cloth or leather roll ups, and
mass produced wood and bamboo boxes. For details on these alternative ways to house your steak knife set, see details below this slider.
Options for boxes/cases for steak knives come in hard or soft cases. Hard cases are generally wood and soft are generally lined Cordura.
I have been doing business for years with Jens Sehm, who is a local master cabinet maker. I have zero to do with prices and design, that is his thing and I do not make a dime off this work. His boxes are featured below on some sets.
⇒ See Jens’ web site⇐, and contact him for more details about design options, timing and cost. If he is to backed up, he will recommend another cabinet maker, who is local and also highly respected.
Other wood box options are below. (copy/past addresses below into your address bar)
Since I have never done business with these companies, I cannot make a recommendation. But I can supply you with inner dimensions of a set, to be able to order a box and have knives fit.
Length of steak knives are 9″ long for the 4″ bladed steak knives and 10″ for 5″ steak knives. Add an inch on either end and you will need 1.5″ width per steak knife. Look around these sites for what looks good to you, but be forewarned, photography is generally poor. You may need two or three zip cases for all the steak knives.
