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?

I'm no expert on knives, but the thought of dropping nearly a grand on a set of knives makes me cringe. Spread that $ around and build your own set! My kikuichi is my fave, but my German utility knife is a lifesaver! Make it your own set!

I recommend reading "an edge in the kitchen" by chad ward. Great info on everything knives.
