I'd like to buy a nice 6-8" chef's knife and paring knife for about $100 total. Ideas?
I've seen some knives in Williams-Sonoma or on-line that range in the $150+ range for a paring knife plus a chef's knife (Globe, etc.). I'd like to know whether I can buy a knife with that same quality for about 30% less (since I have to buy two sets -- one for me and one for my girl).
But if going down to the $50-60 knives means a considerable lack in quality, please let me know. I have a drawer full of junk knives, and I'm sick of it.
