I have Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin signature series and like them a lot.

A friend of mine is on this forum and has a small business making custom knife handles.

i got a victorinox chefs knife last christmas, considering the giver it must not have been expensive. Excellent out of package sharpness but i haven't been able to get it as sharp again and i know how to run a whetstone. Still pretty good sharpness but thin and light blade. I gouged it on a bone :(
a good all around knife brand is ontario knife co.(made is usa) good steel to last a lifetntime.
Everyone should have at least one old hickory. https://www.amazon.com/ontario-knife-hickory-butcher-kitchen/dp/b01emo1lzw/ref=asc_df_b01emo1lzw/?tag=hyprod-20&linkcode=df0&hvadid=242070509182&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2142362819349506717&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9026878&hvtargid=pla-404760845423&psc=1
i got a wustoff sharpener with two crossed ceramic sticks after i use i run it through a few times and those victorinox will still shave you

Just over $300 for three knives, a pair of scissors and a Chinese-made ice cream scoop.

I've had my henckles probably 20 years. Just hit em with the hone every couple uses and take care of em. They've been great.
My wife has had Henckles for about 20-25 years & has a diamond hone knife sharpener to make sure they stay sharp. She loves them & will not buy any other brand.

We use nothing but Cutco here. Probably a good $3K worth.
Steak knives, kitchen knives, serving stuff, BBQ tools, scissors, etc.
Like others have said, we've found used Cutco items at antique stores
and flea markets for dirt cheap. Some we've kept and we've eBayed
some. (Hard to resist a $2 purchase and a $30 sale..... I'll do that all
day & all night)
