Williams Sonoma sounds like an expensive proposition. Try dedicated online knife sellers or even BBAB.

If you're a klutz then get the full bolster. Forgot to mention, those without the bolster come in two types, rounded and squared, my Misono is squared and the Shun rounded off, the square option is risky, serious chance of damaging yourself.

Can’t go wrong with a Bob Kramer set. Get it in Damascus so you can stare while cutting.

Trust me it is IDIOT proof and i get them very sharp, not elite sharp but plenty sharp. There is a honing wheel too so not always needing to sharpen.
I agree, we have one of those as well. Very easy to use.

I recommend Wüsthof Classic Ikon which I purchased to replace some starter Henckels we had for a long time. I started with the Classic Ikon steak knives and then added a 7-piece block set and a couple of individual knives. They are expensive, but a lifetime purchase.

Don’t get a giant set. Figure out the knives you will use and find a smaller set or buy individual of what you want. You can always add more. Spend the money on quality not quantity.

There are couple of dedicated kitchen knives forums. You will get much better answers there.

For what it's worth, I've had a 8" classic Shun chef's knife for 7 years now, and I've been extremely happy with it. Stays sharp for a long time, and it's relatively easy to resharpen with a whetstone (with a bit of practice) well balanced, good grip and weight. It was expensive, but if I consider its cost spread over all the years I already had it, and will continue to have and use it every single day, it is more than justified.

Bought a Sky Light butcher knife about a year ago...had become my go to in most food prep. Although it requires a good sharpening each month...liked it enough to get matching non-serrated steak knives. Not expensive...but just feel right. Nicely weighted...
