My favourite knives are the Kiwi brand small cleavers I get at one of the Asian supermarkets in town for... well, they were AU$5 per blade last time I bought them, but that was quite a while ago...
They're sharp, they stay sharp, they sharpen easily, and they're cheap enough that I don't mind them going through the dishwasher. I use them for everything except harvesting stuff from the garden.
My partner likes his chef's knife and the other various blades of goodness in our kitchen. But he'll use my cleavers, because they can go through the dishwasher :-P
