You may pay a little more per knife, but you will have knives that you actually use, and you will get quality for a smaller effective outlay.

I have a Wusthof Classic 10" chef's knife that I use 90% of the time, with a couple smaller knives to fill in the gaps. That plus a Dexter Russell serrated bread knife are all I use.

Joel, I think it's safe to say, the above quote has been the opinion of all the regulars here. If someone doesn't agree, now's the time to say so.

And That

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
