Set of 6 steak knives made in the Le Thiers style. The straight edged (non-serrated) stainless steel blades are 4 1/2" long and the overall length is 9 1/8" with ebony wood handles. These are a light weight sleek steak knife that has a great feel and cut very smoothly. Non-serrated steak knives will tend to cut for a slightly shorter duration than serrated knives but cut far smoother and can be honed with a sharpening steel from time to time to revive the edge.
The 'Le Thiers' brand is a trademark shared by many regional knife craftspeople in Thiers, France. Thiers is the historical center of knife making in France, and is still where the majority of French made knives are made.
These particular knives are made by Coutellerie Chazeau-Honore in the town of La Monnerie-le-Montel.
