Which Knife Set and Block Should I Buy?

Good Questions

Q: I recently received a gift card to Bed Bath & Beyond. I'd like to buy a good-quality knife set and block with it, but I'm having trouble determining what brand and style would be the highest quality at a good value. I'm hoping to find one for $100 or less, but definitely no more than $150. Help!

Editor: Rather than buying a whole block of knives, of which you might only use one or two, my recommendation would be to invest your gift card money in a really good chef's knife. I'm a Wusthof girl, myself, and have been happily using my 8-inch Santoku knife for just about everything in the kitchen for years now. 

Readers, what do you recommend?
