I need help! I would like to purchase a quality knife for my husband for Valentines Day but am clueless. Please help with information on what brands are the best and where to find them. My budget is between $100 and $150.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

I did a review of several brand of chef's knives based on some subjective tests: Chef's Knives Rated

That could be a start.

Personally, I use my MAC MTH-80 the most but the knife is around $110. For the best overall price/performance Victorinox Fibrox Chef's Knives are a pleasure to use and run under $20.

They are seriously versatile. Check out Martin Yan's cooking show if you have a chance. If only one knife will be used, make it a cleaver.
