May I suggest that you do not want to spend an outrageous price on steak knives.
I have excellent kitchen knives, and I'm very
protective about who uses them and how they're handled. Obviously, no dishwasher. But it goes beyond that. We only use them on a proper cutting board. Hard countertops, pans, platters, and ceramic dishes are very hard on knives. Everyone automatically tells you to only use cutting boards. We all also know not to throw them in a drawer where the edges will get banged together and dinged. We keep the edges protected in blocks or other protective storage.
But the first thing your guests do with a steak knife is cut on a ceramic plate, hit the bone, and scrape the edge on a fork. At the end of the meal, they pile the flatware together on the plate, doing more damage. It's just part of what a steak knife is for. If I spent a lot on them, I would be running from person to person cutting their food just to protect my knives!
I would look for something more moderately priced, that will look nice with my tableware, and you won't be upset when they take the abuse that is inherent in their purpose. Many of the kitchen stores in the malls and outlets sell attractive, serviceable sets of 4 for about $20.
