Nice knives are knives that are sharp (actually sharp, not what many people mistake for sharpness), that hold an edge without being brittle, that are sharpened to a correct angle for the composition of the steel, that are balanced for their task, that are weighted properly for their task, and that feel like an extension of the cook's hand when used properly.

They are safer, faster, and more effective than bad knives.

"Nice" does not, however, equal "expensive." There are some quite nice, inexpensive knives in the world--although the nicest I have ever used does indeed cost an arm and a goddamned leg.
