Right now, I'm surviving with a bunch of crappy blades, and one much-abused 8" Henckels Twin Gourmet. I'm a good cook, and I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen, so I want some 'grown-up' knives. I want ones that will last, but I don't want to pay for gimmicks, branding, or snob-appeal. Suggestions regarding the merits of various materials (is ceramic any good?) brands (Global? Henckels?), price-levels (i.e., twin gourmet vs. four star vs. professional) would be much-appreciated. More than anything, I just want to be steered away from bad deals.
