Armoire of Knives (need recommendations..)

Hi everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving!! I'm asking for recommendation from all food savvy and hopefully food pro's regarding kitchen knives. I do not own block of knives and hear that for those that do own them, they end up using at most 3 all the time. Instead I got one of those knife holders, Kapoosh and I like it. Problem is a Shen 6" chef knife I got 2 years ago has chipped and I'm disappointed as it was not a cheap purchase. So, need help in filling my Kapoosh with knives every chef/cook really needs to own so I don't have to end up with stuff I'll rarely use. What brand, size, and style of knives are basics and mandatory and will give me a good return for whatever amount I spend?? Many thanks to everyone's input!!
