    Not the same quality as a custom, but I have a set of stainless steel handled shuns that I bought when I was inexperianced and thought shun knives were the best thing in the world. They are probably the only shuns I have that I won't eventually give away. Decent quality, one piece, and cheap enough that you don't feel bad using them on plates. Here they are on amazon but when I bought them I got the four piece set for around $125:

That is the main drawback to good steak knives: you have ignore, unlearn or whatever the idea of cutting on hard surfaces.
    One day I'd like to own a set of high quality steak knives with wooden steak plates of some sort (think mini cutting board for dining purposes). Win-win!

    I think the Harners go for $500 for the set of four.

    I've thought of that same thing, and if I ever get a set of Harner's, it may call for such a setup.

    That is actually a really good price for Butch's knives.

    A while back, Hankotsus were being picked up to be used as steak knives.

    Thank you everyone for such thorough replies. The first site recommendation was not getting me anywhere, just a page saying they only ship to NZ and Aus, I believe. I had considered the Shun's, but I'd have to be able to sand and smooth off the large logo. I detest large emblazoned logo's on most things. And I actually love the shape and design of that ironwood custom that was mentioned, except for the massive (dare say ridiculous) makers logo taking up half the blade. I have a lot of desert ironwood custom stuff, some burl, etc for the knobs and levers for my espresso machines.

    And those Harner's are plucking all the right strings.... I need to dig thru his options and see what's available.

    Can't find any available from his site or others. I'll contact him and see how long it would take.

    I did look at the Tojiro DP steak knives. Certainly a bargain, but I'd probably be eyeing something else in a matter of months.

    EDIT: Oh dear lord, these are nice...kinda wish I could buy just two for now.

    Send Butch an email and start a conversation. The set shown in mark4pt0's pic came home from the ECG with me on Sunday; it hits all of your key must-haves (I got to see a set he made last November, which I believe Lefty sold for him).

    I just bought 4 of these, waiting on their arrival.

    Should mention I actually bought them from amazon.
