Kitchen knives are one of those things in life that you have to spend a little money on to get something good. I'm not saying you need to go out and spend thousands of dollars on the best set there is, but you do get what you pay for. Most sub-$100 dollar sets have poor quality blades and are not built to last. It isn't until you get into the $150 to $200 dollar range that you start to see a lot of good sets of knives.
We went back to the knife shop and started our collection of Global knives. They are made of molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and razor sharp (and I mean sharp!). On top of that, the knives are both ice-tempered and resistant to rust or staining. That silly (at first glance) dimpled handle is much more slip resistant than our more traditional knives. One of the advantages of the all in one piece construction is that there is no place for bacteria to hide in the handle or the space between the blade and handle as there is in the traditional construction. Now add a limited lifetime warranty and you have a set of knives which will last for many generations. You will want to hand wash these knives just as you do any other good cutlery. Again, be careful, they are very sharp. They maintain that edge through a lot of use and don't require frequent sharpening.
When it comes to buying a kitchen knife set, it's best to spend as much as you can afford. For most people, this is between $100 to $300. In this price range, there are quite a few great sets made by a number of different manufacturers. One of the best in this price range is an Anolon knife set. Anonlon got their start in the kitchen cookware arena, and recently has expanded into cutlery. They have developed a reputation for making top-notch cookware, and it looks as if their knives are going to follow suit.
