Actually i must admit im one of the people bourdain talks about. i get a hard on when i see nice knives in a case for sale. i want to continue buying chefs knives as collectibles actually but i only have one.
I use a Henckel 8 inch twin profection chefs knife at home and occasionally bring it to work with me. http://www.zwilling.com/en-US/Produc...fe--46191.html
it has a great think handle, is one piece, very thick up top and very very sharp, really good weight. the only downside is the blade seems to have a very wide curve, so when the tip is down and im slicing its almost like i have to lift my wrist higher than some others. besides that it is great and i dont really consider that a downside because it still works good.
it cost me 140 and in my opinion is worth every penny, but i work in a kitchen and often cook at home. im basically always cooking, cutting, etc. i dont like bringing this to work all the time though because others will use it real quick or ill be tempted to just grab it when i know not to use it for certain things because i want it to last as long as possible.

i'd like to get a cheaper henckel or possibly wustof for work and to beat up. fifty dollars for something ill use for 8 hours straight for months or even years means nothing to me. i personally like to have nice knives too so i'd like to not cheap out. we use Mundial brand 8 and 10 inch at work, and they are great for someone who just needs a knife, but they have a cheap feel. for 20 bucks a pop they probably should too.

so yeah, just wanted to post about my toy. any line cooks have any recomendations for a nice chefs knife fo r 30-50 dollars? possibly turn this into a post your knife collection thread? yeah!
