I wouldn't touch non-stick if you paid me and am not fussed with Global knives as they are too light for my liking. I like a knife with a bit of weight and balance to it.
And I can't go past a santoku to add to the knife collection, even though it's not included in most block sets and has to be bought separately.
The knives my DH wanted to upgrade to were a Japanese name which I can't recall. They are not sold in block sets either so this might be them. They are about $200-$300 each and he too said that he wanted knives better balanced than the Globals. The Globals have served us well though I must admit.
