I'm gradually getting this and that together for my kitchen, and I would really like to get a quality set of knives. I don't want to spend more than I need to on the super-top-of-the-line-probably-in-diminishing-returns price range knives, but I want a set of good, balanced knives that will last a long time and I'll enjoy using. The only input I've gotten is that Cutco, while nice, are overpriced. Thoughts? Another option I was thinking was that, instead of spending money on a whole set, I would just get one _really_ good chef's knife.
