    I hate to say this but I think your better deals will be found online. Kitchen Conservatory and Viking in STL both have good knife selections but I think the price can be beat by some comparative online shopping. I have been buying mine from Dexter Russell and have been very satisfied with their products. Great customer service too. http://www.dexter-russell.com/

      Bertarelli Cutlery in the Hill is a small but well equipped restaurant supplier, including a small selection of good quality knives.They have a great knife sharpening service as well. A fun store to wander around.

        A second vote for Bertarelli. I have nothing against the chains, but prefer local folks, and Bertarelli is a not just a kitchen store, it's a knife store. They're specialists. But if you don't want a chain and can't get to The Hill neighborhood, there's the Kitchen Conservatory on Clayton Road in Clayton. A slight hoof from a Metro stop, but workable.
