My first quality knife set

Hi all, I'm in the market for a quality knife set, I've inly owned cheap sets in the past. I'm considering a 17 piece Wusthof Classic Ikon set with a selling price of $860 or possibly a little less. Was wondering if this is a good set and a good price. In my brief research I've read that Wusthof prices tend to be high, but the price above isn't retail so I'm wondering if this is as cheap as it's going to get, or can I find a set from another brand that is just as good and possibly cheaper?

Cutco wouldn't be my first choice for a cheapist option, but there are some extremely affordable cheap options if one dares buck the prevailing trends.
No I wasn't planning on that Rick. Very odd suggestion, but fairly predictable. If anyone interested in my notion of cheapist blades I'd be suggesting Forgecraft or Old Hickory. But nobody has asked yet. Thanks though.
