We have a few Ikon knives, but we don’t have a chef’s knife.  I think that one is KEY.  We do have a Santuko, which we really like.  

We don’t have a tomato knife; I just use the serrated utility knife.  And I have a paring knife for other general things.

DH and I are building a set of Ikon knives and LOVE them!  Because of the sets see have gotten, the utility and paring knife are a pretty much the same.  You don’t need both.

Only ones in my set I always use are the chefs knife, boning / utility, bread knife and pairing … kind of want a santuko and a vegi cleaver but I can do all that stuff with a chefs knife … if you left me with only one I could survive with only a chefs knife.

You probably should go into the store and actually hold each knife, better if you can pick up multiple knives in different brands. Grip the knife. Is it comfortable, or does your hand feel crowded? Is it balanced appropriately for your hand? Heavy enough? Too heavy? Are you comfortable sharpening it? It really isn’t enough to just pick a style and maker, if you want to keep the knife for many years.
