So im moving out with the g/f and need a knife set. I know this sets not the greatest set but it seems like a decent starter for the price. I dont have all too much money to buy top of the line knifes since I have a lot of items to buy.

At least it's Henckels better line, for a starting out home chef I think that's a good mix of quality to value.

I ebayed a set of Wusthof Classic Ikons for Xmas, warranty is a little fuzzy on an Ebay purchase but it is a hell of a lot cheaper than buying them in store - the 8pc set that I was looking at is about $749 locally at the cheapest I can find, and we paid $299usd + free shipping on Ebay for a NIB set.

After you narrow your selection down by trying them in store, you might consider Ebay to save a bit more money, though that Four Star set looks like a good price.

There's this Wusthof 6 pcs set, and it's a good basic set. It has cooks knife, utility knife, paring knife, sharpening steel, kitchen shears and knife block all for $179.95. This Wusthof set is the Classic Series which is one of the top of the line of Wusthof. The knives are full-tang with bolster. Also, the blade is hot drop forged.

Well I just got my Henckel set and I have to say i'm pretty impressed, yes its not the best set but personally I think a good starter set for someone who's a home chef. The set is 100% real which I was worried about for 1 the price and as well I called in to find why it was takeing so long to process my payment and a asian women answered that didn't speak the best english. So the site is a legit site if you are planning on buying something on there as well.
