I will have a set by the end of the weekend.
In the kitchen I have a mix of Wustof and Shun. I'm going to be replacing my Wustof with Shun's piece by piece. The first time I used a Shun, I was a convert.

Everyday carry.

I have a Mini Griptillian, full size Griptillian and a Snody Resistor.
The Axis lock is kick ass and they hold an edge REALLY nice.

Economical, top quality, commercial brands: Forschner, or Chicago Cutlery. Both used in every restaurant kitchen you'll ever walk into. They do a great job, last forever, and won't hurt your wallet too much.

German made, forged blades tend to have a nice heft to them. If you like a weighty knife, I'd recommend Messermeister and Wustof. I like Wustof's new line, called the Ikon. I like the Messermeisters and the Ikon line because they are a bolsterless forged blade. That means the edge can be sharpened all the way to its heel.

Japanese knife designs are traditionally bolsterless. I have several Japanese made blades. Commonly found brands that I like are Global and Shun. Globals are light weight. Some people like that, some don't. Again, go test drive one at a good shop near you.

Get the Miracle Blade. Great for everyday use. Been using mine almost 5 years and never sharpened them. You might be able to get the set for $19.95.

I love my Ken Onion Chef Knife, but my wife hates it. So it is my knife. The blade holds an edge very well. One note on the Shun knife is that most models the handle is hand specific. It is shaped like a D to fit in the hand better. Not a big deal, but if you are like my family. I am right handed (Normal ) and my wife is Left handed. So one set of Shuns does not work.

I have used Dexter-Russell knives thru culinary school (mostly so I don't lose a lot if they get lost or stolen) and have been reasonably impressed with them. If they were heavier, I would like them a lot.

I have (had) a MAC at the house. I am sure it is still around there somewhere, I just haven't seen it since the move. I loved that knife. I guess I should just get another one. Worst case scenario, I own two!

Miracleblade like these? http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=3288082

I have this set and they have been good knives, they feel a bit "cheap" and have rusted somewhat but they have held a pretty good edge. I think I got them at the mall for $20 like mista said, so for the price they have been great.

I still want a Shun or two.

Great knives, I bought paring knives as gifts for my mother and aunt.
The selection in your link though shows a narrow size selection. I would like to see a 8+ inch japanese Santoku knife
