We like these even more because the blade shape on the chef's knife in particular has a better curve for a rocking cut. Both brands excellent--but make sure to get their full-tang versions, not the low or midpriced.

If you go to Butternuts, the high end full-tang knives are behind the cash register. The value-priced (some misleadingly stamped with a high-end name) are hanging on the main wall.

I also recommend a Chef's Choice electric sharpener. This will maintain an almost professional edge with minimal effort and no skill or patience required. We use ours 2X/year.
I've not looked at pricing—how much are you talking about?
