I would get this knife.

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...?SKU=14530533&

I have Wüsthof knives, and am happy with them. But a friend of mine uses those Shun's and they really do reduce fatigue if you are making a lot of cuts. They are a little weird to get used to if you have always used a standard knife shape, but they are very nice.

$265? SWMBO finds out and I am done. Lorena Bobbit style, but with a better knife.

You asked... what is your price range? I have heard nothing but good thing about the Global knives for the budget range.

I have never used them, but they feel nice enough in the hand and get great reviews from all the foodies I know.

I asked about the Kasumi because it was about as much as I wanted to pay for a knife... $150. I'd love to get under $100, but it seems that most of the decent forged blades are in the $150 range.

Thanks for the great info guys. I'll be pulling trigger this wkend, probably online.

Don't overlook the Victorinoxs just because they aren't forged. You could get a full set for the price you are looking at.

Global grips are a little small for my hands. I really like a good 'ole Wusthoff Classic.

is that not a good knife for the kitchen as well? I use it for everything. It is a bit difficult when it comes to PB&J.
