Gourmet is one of Henckels’s inexpensive cutlery lines. These knives don’t have bolsters, but that feature isn’t vital when confronting a rib eye. The high-carbon, stainless-steel 4-1/2-inch blades are stamped, not forged, and because they are serrated on the upper halves, they tend to tear meat fibers rather than slice precisely through them the way straight-edge knives do. On the other hand, the fine serrations reduce the tearing effect, and the blades’ lower halves are straight. The synthetic, three-rivet, full-tang handles are classically styled. –Fred Brack
