Knife gift suggestions please!

I want to get my fiance some nice knives for Christmas. All of the ones we have now are pretty cheap and I know he would appreciate a quality knife. I don't have thousands to spend, so I need suggestions for a good quality chef's knife that will last, and that isn't crazy expensive (I want to get at least two knives and spend less than $200... is that reasonable?)

I've heard Ken Onion is really good, any others?
