If your current steak knives have you eternally sawing away at a piece of meat, are duller than a butter knife, or simply don't exist, it can only mean one thing: It's time to buy some quality steak knives. If you normally equate this kind of investment with a blow to your budget, you're in luck. There's no better time to purchase, as one beloved set is currently more than 50% off on Amazon.
The only thing better than slick steak knives are slick steak knives on sale, and Trudeau's Laguiole Steak Knife Set has dropped from its original $100 price tag to $43. And though they're in the process of restocking, they can still be shopped at their discounted price. It comes with six knives, and these aren't just any sharp slicers: They're inspired by Laguiole—a specialty knife style that hails from France.

To buy: Trudeau Laguiole Steak Knives with Pakkawood Handles, $43 (originally $100) at amazon.com
Maybe you think your current knives are up to par, or that one set of knives is already enough—but these are two things shoppers quickly changed their minds about after ordering these sleek blades. "I did not know I had dull steak knives until I used the Laguioles," wrote a customer. "I bought a second set just to have on hand," added another pleased shopper.
Reviewers also love how lightweight and nimble Trudeau's collection is—svelte and smooth to grip. "These steak knives cut better than any I've used and the fit and finish is impeccable," described one person. "Each time I use them and clean them, I'm struck by how much I enjoy owning them."
Though they're compact, they slice through anything bestowed upon your dinner plate. The stainless steel serrated edges can be thanked for that, as well as the full tang blade that runs the whole length of each knife.
"These knives are great for the money," wrote a reviewer. "They cut like butter. We even use them to cut small fruit and they're great. All of our guests comment on how nice they look. I'm thinking of buying an extra set just to have as backup in case they run out of stock and don't remake."
Not only that, but their color and shape help "jazz up your dining table," as one reviewer put it. The handles consist of Pakkawood, a composite material that looks like wood but is more durable and lasts much longer. That being said, it's best to handwash these elegant blades to avoid any unnecessary wear and tear.
Your trusty steak knives have had a good go, but it might be time to invest in this sharp set from Trudeau—especially while they're majorly on sale.
