Good quality chef's knives?

My older brother is really into cooking. He has the shittiest knives ever and I thought he would really appreciate some new ones. I don't know anything about these things, and I don't think he does either. But how much do you think a nice set of knives would cost?? I realize there must be a huge price... show more My older brother is really into cooking. He has the shittiest knives ever and I thought he would really appreciate some new ones.

But how much do you think a nice set of knives would cost?? I realize there must be a huge price range. I am looking for something less than $100. Any tips or ideas or anything??

Good brand names? Anything?
