Affordable knife shop in Baltimore

Hi guys,

Has anyone recently purchased a higher end knife for a reasonable price? I am having trouble finding a decently-priced knife store. I went to the cooking store in Columbia Mall, and that was really expensive and out of the knife I really wanted. I read on some boards that lots of people like "Asian" knives, so I check the H-Mart in Catonsville and they only have a Henckel's santoku knife. They do have some ceramic knives, but I don't think I'm going that route. The American Grinding Company always seems to be closed when I drive by, and their old phone number (from when they were near the stadium) doesn't work anymore. I haven't been to Frank's Cutlery, yet. I went to the culinary arts college on Commerce St. At first they were gonna let me check out the bookstore there, but then they declined. Walmart and Target don't have good enough quality for me. I don't like the Kitchen Aid knives some hounds like. I do like a few Calphalon brand knives, however I only saw them as a set in the Columbia Mall store. I would really appreciate any recommendation. Doesn't have to be Foereshner or whatever, just good quality that can be sharpened again and again for years to come. Thank you so much.
