Sadly it's $15 higher than your price range, but I would still suggest the Global G2. It's really just flat out an incredible knife.
That's a great budget! My favorite chef's knife (not a sushi knife, but it gets the job done & versatile) is the 8" Global Chef's Knife ([link]). Hands down, one of the best knives I've ever used in my life. Rated highly by pros too!
Last knife you will need. [link]
global 8" chef if you're willing to spend 100$. on a practical level as good as any much more expensive fancier knife, holds a good edge, etc.
Interesting. To me, it's his earlier shows - REALLY earlier shows where it was all new to him and he would let the viewers know something tasted like shit. Then, he stopped doing that.
If I'm honest, I did stop paying close attention because after his, "let's eat anuses and eyeballs phase" and then he just seemed to focus on going to shitholes in every country and only say how delicious it was even though it sounded frightful phase. I get that his point was that a lot of good food comes from peasant food. That still doesn't mean I'm going to be cooking chicken's feet anytime soon.
I loved his episodes with the Russian guy who would get him drunker than a skunk and then make him do things, but those were quite a while ago. And evacuating him from Beirut. Probably others, but those I truly loved.
I also liked how he would introduce upcoming chefs as well as sometimes go back to a couple of places because he busted on their cuisine so he gave it another try.
We did get one of the knives he recommended in one of his books. I was too lazy to find it in the books, so I googled it = [link]. I think in his book it was ~$60. Well not anymore - it's double but it is mighty fine. I've only cut myself once with it. lol
