I'd recommend not buying a knife set, but deciding which individual
knives you want & spending more money on those.

e.g. we have a good breadknife, a very good large chef's knife, & a very
good little vegetable/paring knife.  And a couple of very average knives
(one serrated, one not) dating from both of our student days.  And do
buy a knifeblock or something to keep 'em in.  

I'd also strongly recommend going & trying them out in person rather
than buying online.  I think we got ours from Pages, or possibly
Jaeggis, both on Shaftesbury Ave.  Knife-heft is a very individual
