Edit: I do recommend going and playing with knives before you buy them. I picked one type of knife based on what I read, but when I went into the fancy kitchen goods store to get the feel of the handles, I didn't like them as much, whereas the handle on a different knife line felt like it was actually made for my hand.

For example, a single 8" chef knife can do the majority of the work in your kitchen. Add a paring knife and you're pretty much set. Those two knives, properly cared for, should last for decades.
