Please no $130 knives, just ones that one can typically buy on sale for $30 or less (and someone almost always has a sale on knives). In particular, I just bought a Chicago Cutlery Santoku on sale for less than $20 and a Kitchen Aid for less than $10, and a three piece Cusinart paring knife set for under $10, any opinions on these brands. I actually have two Kitchen Aid Santoku knives, both identical size but the pro series blade is thinner and sings when thumped, instead of the dull thud I get when thumping the blade of the cooks series. BTW, is the sound a blade makes when thumped with your finger indicative of the quality of the steel in the blade?
