I found a chef's knife comparison in the December 2002 cooks illustrated. The winner was a Forschner 8 in. chef's that weighs 7.1 oz. & currently costs $23.95

Number 2 was a Wusthof Grand Prix 8.2 oz.
Number 3 was an Oxo mv55 8 oz.
Number 4 was a J.A. Henckels four star 7.7 oz.

In the article they state that all the knives were good but some testers liked the lightweight knives & the softer textured plastic handles, some liked a heavier knife.
Here's an interesting quote from the article (As for forged vs. stamped, it simply doesn't matter, nor does the existence of a bolster). I'm not sure I'm buying either one of those comments but we are talking about inexpensive knives.

I have a Forschner fibrox 10" chef's knife and of all of my knives that's the one that need sharpened most often.

Maybe if I used the steel every time I used it might help.

When it is sharp it cuts nicely and there are uses where a knife with a thin blade is prefered.
