Hopefully you didn't pay RRP Makena. They are good knives, though since I started picking up Japanese Steel I've been won over. I don't have to sharpen my blade on the steel anywhere near as often as with my Wusthof blades. This is the collection I have to date.

@ashi, that last one, what is that called? I've been looking to get a really good knife, and I like the look of that one.

I believe they are or are similar to sushi/sashimi knives right? I'd like to get a smaller one and a longer one similar to yours. Would like to know some brands/places to get them.

We did not, paid potentially still paid too much ($350 delivered), but it was $400 less than retail stores had them at, and only $100 more than shops in the US had them for, but if they're decent then they'll be good to have. Not expecting them to match expensive single blades, but hopefully they work for me lol

It's because they are different alloys (for different purposes). What I like about the Wustof ones is they are continuously stamped and have a CNC'd ground edge. I'm the the market for a knife too actually, it's a tie between Shun (I think that's what they are called), Wustof and Global. Either one Shun chefs knife (because they cost elevnty billion dollars :P) or maybe a Wustof/Global and one a Kyocera Ceramic or something.

Heh, some are $400+ for a single knife depending on what you get. Need to be careful with them too, they aren't just knives you can go around hacking up machete style. Even a quick google seem to think you can chip them on small bones. Having said that they are stupid sharp if you take care of them.
EDIT: Just Googled it, $544 D:
