what knife is best for you

as a culinary arts instructor i am often ask what knife is best for answer is the knife that feels good in your hand.there are two types of knives. stamped & forged.the stamped blade is lighter in weight and cost a lot less and there are many good stamped blades on the market.i like the messermeister four seasons and the park plaza.i also like the forschner with the black fibrox handle.if money is not a problem by all means check out the mac brand of japanese knives.(these are my personal choice) forged knives are a lot heaverer and cost a lot more but the benefit is they will for the most part last a life time.awesome brands of forged knives are shun,wusthof classic & san moritz & mederian from messermeister.your thoughts on the subject are appreciated.
