Wusthof makes some good knives, as well as Henckels, I prefer the german knife makers myself,
My main knife is a 9" Wusthof Culinair Cooks knife, pretty much handles everything, razor shorp, and perfectly balanced. I have a few other knives, but I use the 9" cooks knife to debone chickens, cut down spares, slice/chop veggies, etc.
I gave my 8" Henckel Chefs knife to my wife when I got the Wusthof Culinair.
I prefer to buy knives piece by the piece vs a set, more expensive, but can I get what I want that way.
