With their slim, thin blades curving up to a sharp point, these knives slice a steak into precise bites. "International Classic" is a moderately priced cutlery line made in countries other than Henckels's home of Germany. Henckels's "International Traditional" line is identical except it has hardwood handles. Steel is of lesser quality than Henckels' premier lines. The knives are dishwasher-safe, but not recommended. --Fred Brack
