    You need not buy knives in sets or to match and you only need 3 or four. There is a chopping done with (shape)Santuko knives and when you get there, there are many brands. One of the best knives are Foershner(sp) brand the butchers use them a lot and they sell them at many restaurant supply stores. you want to handle the knife to see how well it fits in your hand.I have many brands and I haven't picked a favorite.The guide I used was

    '"COOK'S ILLUSTRATED' magazine You don't buy knives

    because they are pretty. The one problem I had was stores that have their knives glued down and the is no one to wait on

    you. Besides tang , knives are stamped(cheap) and forged. the other thing that is important is the care and sharpening of

    your knives. I have mine in drawers laying flat. Also because a NAME is on a brand,they ger paid for the use of their name,Like Emeril he has cookware in his name made by All-Clad, but All-Clad by itself is superior to Emerilware. Everything I have has been well thought out before the purchase

    Just because you like a knife that you see on television doesn't mean it's the right knife for you. Choosing a knife is a very personal thing...the weight has to be right for you, the handle has to fit right in your hand, many knife dealers don't say in online descriptions if the tang of the knife (the metal that extends from the bottom of the blade down through the handle) goes all the way down the handle (which is best) or not, in order to do the speed chopping like Jacques Pepin does by rocking his chef's knife very quickly over food, there has to be a slight curve to the blade to do this.

    If you're serious about your knives, go to a store...Williams Sonoma, Bed Bath and Beyond, Crate and Barrel, etc and pick them up and see how they fit in your hand, are they too heavy, too light?

    I wound up buying the Mundial Future line of knives after previewing countless brands.
