The world of knives is vast, and the arguments of which is the best, is an endless cycle. What we have found to be the smoothest cut and most durable is Wusthof. We have the entire butcher block set but all you really need are the steak knives. Here they are ($22) less than when I saw them in a Bed and Bath store.

When making a steak at home whether broiling or on the stove we recommend using a case iron skillet. You can put this on the stove in the morning, throw a steak on one side and crack an egg on the other. In a few minutes you have breakfast ready. Dinner same thing throw salt and pepper or some garnishes in here and it will cook the steak evenly. Other than the grill, this is the best and simplest way to cook at home.
