Thank you all for the warm welcome, and your insights. I pulled the trigger and ordered a CarboNext 240mm Gyuto, Hattori HF 170mm Santoku, Hattori HD 135mm Petty, and lastly a 3 1/2" victorinox parer. Yeah my wife wanted the Santoku otherwise I would've skipped over getting it. I think I will be sending any of the knives that don't have a good out of box edge to get sharpened, and then buying a few stones so I can try and maintain the edges from there.
Congrats, and welcome to the forum.
Down the rabbit hole with another one!
