Another vote for Shun. I have the Premier Santoku and I can say that it is a great all-around kitchen knife.

As for sharpness, I started practicing hand sharpening knives as my collection grew a couple years ago, and have gotten pretty good at it. I can get most knives hair-popping-sharp pretty consistently. Since starting, I have kept our kitchen knives (which are nothing fancy) with a nice edge on them and strop them regularly. I don't use a 'steel', just a ceramic stone and leather strop with polishing compound for straightening out the edge. We all definitely had un-learn some bad habits about knife handling, and I usually warn them when I have given them a fresh touch-up, but they cut sooo much nicer. Nothing like slicing into a fully ripe tomato and getting no resistance whatsoever.

I was going to buy a nice kitchen knife or two but once I started keeping our current set sharp, I really don't see the need for us. Though this is probably the last 'set' I will buy and will replace individual knives with higher quality stuff. Lea prefers the traditional chef knife design and uses that for most stuff, where I like a combination of the Santoku and Carving knife for larger meat.
