Ken Onion is a knife designer who usually makes $400 custom knives. He designed a few for mass production (I carry one as my pocket knife). The Shun series are maybe the nicest: almost any two of these would normally cost the $400 that this set costs.
They are insanely sharp (use an edge angle more like a razor blade than the typical heavy German-style kitchen knife), and the handles are ridiculously comfortable and well-balanced.
If you use kitchen knives a lot and can afford them, you'll be glad you did.
Yes, I know: they're very expensive. If you got a new Porsche for half price, it would still be expensive, and some people would still say you're a doofus for spending so much for a car that only holds 1 passenger and 1 suitcase. But if you like cars, you'd have a silly grin. More or less the same idea here.
I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!
