Oxford Steak Knife Set of 4 (Fire-Glow Maple)Regular price $2,175.00
We've been asked over and over again by our clients to create a steak knife set. After careful deliberation, design, and execution... we give you the Oxford Steak Knife Set.
The knives are designed to effortlessly slice any grilled, braised, or roasted protein that graces your table. Merely including the Oxford in your table setting builds anticipation and makes for an "over-the-top" meal.
Folks have even said it makes their steaks taste better. We can't go that far, but it transforms a dining experience into something that much more memorable. Since you'll likely be cutting on fine dinnerware, be sure to keep these honed and sharpened for peak performance.
Paired with the Fire-glow Maple Wood handle that is remarkably luminescent; nothing short of a showstopper. The black micarta bolster adds class and intrigue.
†History of the Name...
As you may know, we often name our knives after the highest peaks in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, affectionately known as "fourteeners".
Mount Oxford | 14,160 feet
Mount Oxford was the final of the Collegiate Peaks to earn a name. It was somehow overlooked from prior surveys in the area and wasn’t formally named until 1925. The name ended up coming from John Lathrop Jerome Hart, who wrote in his book, “Fourteen Thousand Feet: A History of the Naming and Early Ascents of the High Colorado Peaks,” that the peak would be named Mount Oxford. He, along with his brother, who was another prominent mountaineer, attended the university in England.
It is available in the following high carbon steel blade formats: Hand-forged Matte, 230 layer Damascus, and in the extremely unique San Mai.
Hand Forged Matte - This is the staple of our limited edition blades. It capitalizes on the beneficial properties of high carbon steel, resulting in maximum performance, and an almost silky textured finish.
Damascus - While this legendary knife making process dates back thousands of years old, our modernized process creates timeless, contemporary knives. Each of the individual 230 layers of steel folded by hand to create a remarkable and mesmerizing damascus- a wavy, ripple pattern tracing the lines where the steel layers fused. Each piece is a labor of love and creativity. Each damascus pattern is one of kind.
San Mai - This "three parts" composition and construction process is Japanese in origin, and it accurately describes how this blade format is produced. We use an extremely technical process of hand forging a stainless steel around a high carbon steel core. The stainless elements are meant to have an imperceptible flex, around a rock hard core that is also the cutting edge. The visible wave that is created when the layers are bonded together is entirely unique to that blade. No two are the same.
