I like to have a nice set of steak knives that can also double as good, sharp anytime knives and these, up top, are my splurge pick. Really a small kitchen knife from Spain, these kill it in the kitchen and at the table. Nice description here and a few more picks below:
"Each Pallarès knife is hand-fashioned from high-quality carbon steel, and set with a boxwood handle. It's a forever piece made by a third-generation knife smith in the small town of Solsona, Spain, not far from Barcelona. Each piece is hand-stamped.
