Am looking for that final life-purchase: decent knives. My research (and budget) suggest the Wusthof Trident line to be good cutting value at a reasonable price. I am about to visit Manhattan and HOPE someone can recommend a good location to buy. Specifically, I'm looking for a three-knife with block and steel for less than $150 (a price often available at the non-NY based Hudson's). More than I want to spend would be the 7-pc. set going for something under $250 at Zabar.
Please share the wisdom,
