Global knives, with their Japanese samurai heritage are brilliant. Insanely sharp, well balanced and well made. Block has several empty slots, presumeably ready for you to buy many more knives.
Have to be washed by hand though, but it's a worthwhile hassle.
You may be sometimes able to acquire them cheaper elsewhere through specialist catering suppliers though. That said, I can't see the difference between this and the Michel Roux JR branded set, which seems to be more expensive just because of the name.
