Don't waste your money. For now, stay with what you have. Later, invest in several really, really good knives.

I know this probably is not the answer you are looking for, but I am going to say it anyway.

A really good knife is the knife that is comfortable in your hand and the knife that you use and enjoy using. It can be a $10 knife or it can be a $1000 knife.

My first set of good knives was the Chicago Cutlery Walnut Traditions. They are pretty good and a great deal better than the TV knives.
