First post on here so I'm probably asking something that's been asked a million times but I am looking for advice on a particular set that I've seen in a local store (in the UK).
I currently just have a pretty big standard set of knives but am a keen cook and would like to but a good set of knives to help improve my food prep.
reading on the Internet I get the impression that brands like Henckels and Wustoff do make top quality knives but have diluted their brand a bit by making much cheaper knives and sticking their name on basically going for easy sell under their prestigious name.
As such, I recently found this set at a local department store and it seems like a good price and is cheaper than anything on the internet I found but I'm just wondering if it actually ever was a '£400' item or if this is just one of those cheaper products that they deliberately put a silly price on in the first place just to sell as a 'bargain'.
It is a Henckels 7 piece pro set. Link below. Do people have much of an opinion on the quality/value of this set:
