STK Sapphire Steak Knives

Eating a steak dinner at a fancy steakhouse used to be tops in the world of fine dining, but not anymore. Now, VIPs and celebrities are expecting a little something extra to go along with their meals. So Las Vegas steakhouse STK had a novel idea: Bejeweled steak knives.

And no, that’s not costume jewelry on those knives. It’s 300 sapphires with a weight of 6.5 carats, adding up to a steak knife valued at around $30,000! It was recently unveiled after being designed by LA jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills. And two of the satisfied customers to use the knife so far have been none other than Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani!

I wonder if steak tastes any better when you are cutting it with a $30,000 knife?
