Las Vegas ‘female-friendly’ steak joint, STK gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘fine dining’ with $30,000 steak knives dripping in diamonds and pink sapphires.
But steak hotspot STK located inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel on the Vegas strip has taken a different approach to luxury indulgence. The steakhouse has collaborated with celebrity jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills (designer of Jessica Alba’s engagement ring) to create a set of steak knives with more bling most of us will ever see in a lifetime. A diamond-encrusted knife worth $18,000 was originally created and more recently, its mate – a $12,000 pink sapphire knife – was created to complete the set. The sapphire knife features 300 full-cut pink sapphires totaling 6.5 carats that, over 20 hours, were hand set along the stainless steel knife.
Some celebs who have cut their steak in style are Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, and bands Foster the People and Bush. No word on what it will set you back to dig into your Waygu beef with one of these sparklers, but considering the clientele that have used the set of knives so far, we’re guessing they are not offered when the hostess asks if you would like a table or a booth.
