The AmazingRibs.com Professional Brazilian Steakhouse Knife Set Selected by Meathead
There is just something about those big beautiful steak knives that the best steak houses use that I have always admired. There is something about the crappy cheap steak knives in my kitchen that I have always hated.
So I set out to get a set of the real deal. Not just for steaks, but for ribs, chops, even veggies. When I found access to the company that makes them for the best NY steakhouses, much to my delight, I learned that I could not only buy a set, they would emblazon them with the AmazingRibs.com imprimatur and sell them through Amazon. I set my table with them every night now. Even the toughest meats turn to butter beneath these extraordinary blades.
Here's the story behind these wonderful knives, and it's a good one:
In 1911, Valentin Tramontina, a Brazilian of Italian descent, opened a small blacksmith shop in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. Farmers in the region required hand-forged machetes to clear jungle undergrowth and cut sugar cane, and local gauchos (cowboys) used facóns (literally "big knives") to butcher Brazil's world famous beef.
After 100 years, the company he founded continues to produce artisanal high-specification tools and knives, including professional table knives selected for their quality and durability by many of the best steakhouses in Brazil and the US including Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others.
These machine washable utensils boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge retention. Each knife, signature branded by the manufacturer for AmazingRibs.com, has a solid feel with perfect balance and weight. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable and firm grip, secured by three hefty rivets to ensure a solid bond between handle and blade for years of use, perfect for tackling all meats and vegetables, tough and tender. There's no need to baby these professional restaurant proven knives. They are dishwasher safe, rust and stain resistant, and they stay shiny without polishing.
I love them and I know you will too. Click here to order your own set of 4 of The AmazingRibs.com Professional Brazilian Steakhouse Knife Set Selected by Meathead.
