Where to purchase cutlery online

I am looking for a good online store where I can buy a new set of knives at a good price.
I recently bought a new set of All-clad pots at really good prices thanks to hounders.
Any recommendation on what brand I should get? I heard Global makes good knives.
I was in the market for some new cutlery as well a few weeks ago when I posted the following thread:
I got some great advice - almost EVERYONE said to go to a cutlery store and see how the knives actually feel in my hand before purchasing online. So I did, and I fell in love with a couple of Shun Stainless Knives which I ordered online at www.cutleryandmore.com for a much lower price than the store where I tried them out. :o)
I don't know the best place on line, but I have to strongly endorse Soy's recommendation to go to a store and decide what you want before you buy on line. I was leaning towards Henckel's, and once I compared how they felt to Werstof, Werstof won hands down.
I third that, you really have to go to a store first and handle the knives before buying. Globals, for example, are very nice knives but a lot of people find the handles uncomfortable. Find a brand that's comfortable, and don't buy a set, concentrate on the knives you use the most. The best prices I've found online are at Knifecenter:
JapaneseChefsKnife.com has some great knives at great prices, but you can't handle them first:
