    Talking ChefSteps Butter to steak knife conversion video

    Awesome little video with a great little idea for any knife enthusiast, go to an antique retailer/goodwill/ yard sale and buy some cool looking steak knives for a few bucks and than re-profile them into steak knives. From watching the video it seems like a project you could accomplish in a Saturday afternoon whilst is was raining. It looks to be a similar method to a standard tip repair which we have all done, or at least read about. I'd love to see what some of the pros could do in this area. I figured I would post this since I have seem a few steak knife threads and most of the worthwhile knife sets are pretty pricey.

    not a bad idea, but its unhardened steel so its still a butter knife with a steeper bevel on it. Beautiful prison shanks

    We would not call them butter knives in Europe (butter spreaders are usually quite short and have a rounded tip) - they are just dinner knives. It is quite a nice idea though if you have the time and don't mind sharpening them quite often. Steak knives have a hard life as they are constantly used against porcelain.

    those are relatively uncommon over here...but to keep things clear we call those: butter knives!

    almost always people will use a dinner knife as a butter knife. If it's a formal meal, there will be a proper butter knife on the bread plate though.
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    been doing this for years
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
