I'm always tempted to pickup a general purpose and fairly inexpensive Japanese kitchen knife, given such limited use as it will get currently I hesitate. A Chinese cleaver would be very regularly used in my house but I've found two varieties of those and the low end are just terribly bad.

I take no offense of course, it's been a very long time since I've made a knife and I always did want to try exotic materials. I still have a small pile of exotic woods that I picked up for that purpose and a few pieces of steel.

I tend to agree with George on the razors, I also imagine it takes some time to really find your bearings as a maker. In fact this might be a good break from plane making for yourself.
