Wow, I must say the forged set for $ 35 is tempting... but as Caine suggested, they were probably forged by a nine year old kid.

According to Cook's Illustrated, the best performing 8" knife they tested is the Forschner Victorinox ($ 35), they also recommend the Wusthof gourmet cook knife ($ 50) and MAC chef knife ($ 48).

You always need a really good knife in your kitchen, you never know when your mother in law will show up unannounced LOL

Now that is a gorgeous set of knives. The only thing I donít like is the Chefís knife is too pointed and doesnít have as much of a rounded blade at the tip like mine (and many other styles) do. I like a more rounded tip as it facilitates a rock-and-chop type movement for herbs, veggies, etc. Not saying you canít do that with a more pointed blade like this, but I prefer more of a curve. Still, very good looking set!
