Here's a pretty thorough review I initiated
Other choices mentioned here also.
Henkles uses the exact same steel, and the cheaper ones I've seen are terribly thick all around, particularly at the edge where you really don't want it. All these knives are stamped btw, the bolsters you see are created by an area induction heating and restamp after the blanks are stamped.
For $45 you can have a 10" Rosewood Vic delivered to your door. Modify the handle as I did and you have a decent knife. The Fibrox is OK as is, but wouldn't hurt for some handle work either. Thin over most of the edge, they a little thick at the tip though, again not nearly as bad as the Henkles I mentioned, and you'd need some tools you probably don't have to deal easily with that.
For less than 100 you can get a Tojiro DP or Fujiwara FKM, both a decent step up from the Vic. But believe me and many pros that you won't hurt for starting out with the Vic, and perhaps better you practice sharpening on that to begin.
