After a while, I , like many people, start to try out some "premium" kitchen knives. The most common brands I know of are Wüsthof, Zwilling and Shun. Commonly priced in a range of $100-$400. Not something for most people, but enough will try one or a few, once in a long while. (Surely professionals are a different story.) But sadly these are only the very few of the “premium” brands，mostly due to my limited knowledge and experience. I've heard chef's knives as expensive as $10,000 a piece.
Not trying to spend time to figure out which knife is the most expensive, but wonder if there are some readily available recommendations, reviews, comparisons, prices ranges and list of places to shop for the common folks who venture to take a shot to spend a few hundred bucks. Of course doesn't hurt to know a few tricks or places to find good deals for quality products.
