The Collins and Grosvenor steak knives have the same narrow blade, but the Grosvenor has a slightly heavier handle while the Collins has a curved slim handle. The Huguenot is the largest and heaviest of the three knives with most of the weight in the handle.
The Collins, with its beautiful curved handle and thin blade, fits comfortably in any steak lover’s hand.
The Grosvenor’s thin blade and slightly heavier handle moves the weight of the knife to your hand for a smooth cut.
The Huguenot looks and feels like a traditional steak knife and is longer and heavier than the Collins and Grosvenor – perfect for the steak lover with large hands.
