    Does anyone have any experience with the relatively new Schmidt Bros. brand?  I have searched high and low and found very little information about them.  I have some friends from NY that love them, but that's about the extent of comments.  I'm in the market for a new set of steak knives and looked at their "teak bonded" steak knives.  Personally, I'm a little unsure about shelling out a large amount for serrated steak knives, but I'll go for them if they're quality.  I prefer smooth edges knives, but they see too much abuse when used on plates and I'm too lazy to constantly be sharpening them.  Thanks.

    There are less expensive, serrated knives which will do as good a job.  But $60 isn't expensive for nice with nice, teak handles.  If that's what you want, what the heck?  You only live once.

    I am looking at a chefs knife from this  brand also 

     the Teak handle looks really nice 

    also there titanium one i kind of fell in love with threw the pictures

    has anyone worked with these before ? 

    i see them online at Dillards but they don't cary them in store i figured 50 bucks for the teak handle one and 40 for the titanium one isn't a bad price if they are good 

    so wondering if anyone has had any experience with this brand ?

    I just purchased the Titan #22 set and the first time I used the slicer knife on a vegetable, the handle broke off. It appears there was rust inside the handle somehow. I would be careful buying these.
