    Need a knife set for my mom that is less than $500.

    Need a pot/pan set for my gf's mom that is less than $200 (its for a vacation home that only gets about 5 months/year of use).

    At the last restaurant I worked at, my boss received a few of his knives as a promotional thing. They look kind of neat, but otherwise I wasn't impressed.

    That's a decent mid-grade budget. Should have no problems finding something.

    They'll just try to sell me whatever has the highest margin for them at my price points. There are a lot of good cooks here. I value their opinions. :fil:

    Victorinox/RH Forschner makes a couple different block sets that are nice. One forged one and one w/ Rosewood handles that comes w/ 4 matching table knives. Swiss made too.

    If you gonna buy a set like that Wustoff, look at the knives to see if they are made in China. They sell various different series of knives from over priced Chinese crap to top flight stuff. I even saw one manufacturer (forget who) who put "Designed in Germany" on one side of the knife w/their logo, and on the other side put Made In China.

    F. DICK makes very good quality, professional cutlery, but some of their nicer stuff is going to be over your budget. The 1905 series is beautiful and can be had with a magnetic knife block.

    It actually doesn't look bad when you see them in person. The design on the handle looks really cheap in that picture.
