    Not a bad idea, the two smaller knives are very similar though. I would go for the the 2 piece set at Cultlery & More Tojiro DP 8.25 gyuto & 3.5 paring knife sale at 99.95. Then you have 2 useful...

    Toss that pull through & get a stone sending the knife out to get sharpened is more hassle than taking a little time to learn sharpening. You can get a King 1000 medium stone for around 25.00.As Mike...

    Looks like the Fibrox 8". Victorianox(Former Forschner).They always had a bit of a rise at the tip,not like many flatter profile Japanese gyuto.The steel is decent & can be sharpened many times.
