The best value in kitchen knives

One big way to save money, and build useful and attractive-to-others skills is to cook for yourself. To do that, you need some good kitchen knives. Most people have a drawer full of ten or twelve low-quality, dull knives that they bought as a set, instead of just two or three knives of good quality. 

90-100% of your knife needs can be handled by two implements: A Chef’s knife and a paring knife. As a bonus, you can throw in an excellent bread knife too.

I recommend and use these high-quality knives from Victorinox, which makes them at very reasonable prices for the quality:

10.25″ bread knife (use with caution: very sharp!)

Make sure you get a sharpening steel as well such as this one from Henckels.  This is so you can sharpen the knives yourself when they inevitably lose some of their edge.
