Check out your local stores and get a feel of the knives in person. Just stick with a forged blade.

My husband bought me a set of 5 knives from Sharper Image. He is a big fan of them and normally buys cool gadgetery from there.

I had Chicago Cutlery knives before and the constant sharpening was turning out to be a chore.

The Sharper Image Knives were orginally priced at 100 dollars for 5 knives but they dropped the price to 49.99. I absolutely love these knives.

I have a chef's knife, bread knife, carving knife, pairing knife and just a general utility knife.

They require no sharpening and work better than some of the higher end brands I have tried when I visit some of my friends.

I don't like to have a ton of knives. I just like a few good ones and these 5 are the only ones I will purchase from now on (I don't need for example a boning knife because for me it's easier to buy the product without bone then to try to take the bone out). They even have other cool knives (the ones Ming used to cut with - plastic or wooden ones). I have not tried them but they get good reviews on Amazon.

The knives Ming Tsai uses are ceramic, from Kyocera, and outrageously expensive. You can buy ceramic knives from China, which are every bit as good as the Kyocera knives, for a lot less money. I believe I posted a coouple of links to ceramic knife sellers/manufacturers from China in another kinife thread.
