I come to the experts for advice...my husband wants a new set of kitchen knives for our cabin and gave me the green light to pick them out. We've got a set of Global knives at home that he picked, but I don't love the all one-piece construction, and I'm not sure I want another convex ground set. So, looking for a small set in the kinda middle $200-300 price range, ideally with at least a paring knife, a small chef's knife, and a large chef's knife.

Any suggestions?

In a perfect world, I'd buy the Spyderco Murray Carter Superblue knives and call it a day, but they're more than hubby wants to spend. So I've been looking at Shun, Boker, Henckels, but I have no idea which brands to trust. I'm also not as familiar with the common kitchen knife steels like X50CrMoV15, VG-Max, MBS-26. How do they compare with BD1N, VG-10, and Superblue on the Spyderco kitchen knives?

Thanks for any help or advice!

Henkels 15 piece precision knife set is a great quality set. They also have an 18 piece set that is nice. They feel very nice in the hand and they have a solid reputation.

If you can't afford a decent knife, just buy something cheap you can use until you save enough money to buy what you really want.
