I agree with the power of suggestion comment. I also hate knives with serrated edges. I don't buy really expensive kitchen knives but I do have a really nice set of Chicago Cutlery that I'm very happy with. The only knife I like with a serrated edges is a bread knife. My chef and a couple of santoku blades in my Chicago Cutlery work great.
