    Smart. A good cutting surface is crucial when you have nice knives.

    We bought a JA Henckels set about 15 years ago and its been good.

    We've got some open stock Wusthof knives that are pretty decent, too. :dontknow:

    I have a decent set of Henckels but I only use the chefs knife and paring knife 99.9% of the time.

    There are some really great knives out there and it's more of a personal preference regarding the weight, handle, feel, etc. I suggest going to a few stores that sell high end knives, hold them in your hand, decide which is best for you, write down the names/serial numbers and then search for the best deal online. As mentioned earlier, you don't need an entire knife set/block.

    I would look at the victorinox at Amazon. they're stamped and not forged, but I swear to god they stay so sharp for so long it's ridic. I only have to put them on a stone once a year of so, and then hone them before every use of course and they're always razor sharp. I don't even use my henckles anymore because they don't keep a fucking edge..

    I wouldn't get a set in a block, I have an 8" chefs knife that I use 90% of the time, a 12" slicer, a 6" fillet, a paring knife and a magnet strip.. and the best part for example Is the chefs knife was think $30-$40
