"For future prospect you should check out Marks line of knives here,http://www.chefknivestogo.com/richmondknives.html The quality and price of any of his lines are unbeatable period.If you want to get really serious about knives start investigating heat treatment,percentages of elements in a knife,metallurgy etc."
The Mac is a step in the right direction (gateway drug), but Lucian is 100% correct. Mark's series of knives are tough to beat for price/performance ratio, utilizing some of the most interesting steels available. And then going beyond 5k (and still using the 5k) is certainly a sensible option.
