I like Global knives. They're made out of one piece of metal and have
hollow handles for nice balance.

Get an appropriate sharpening stone for your knife.. I use an oilstone,
from B&Q, cost about a fiver. And I have one of those metal poker-shaped
steels for taking the burr off the edge or casual polishing of the 
blade. Lots of people seem to like whetstones and waterstones as being 
a bit easier to work with. Technique is everything with stone
