You won't find much love for knife sets on this forum, most of us here are a bit fanatical about having wickedly sharp knives that offer absolute performance. Not a strong suit for German style knives. There nothing wrong about German knives but they are designed for different use then what most is us here seek. Most of the knives talked about here are Japanese or at least Japanese style which offers a harder, higher quality steel that enables a knife to be thinner and have a much more acute edge which leads to better cutting performance. German steel tends to be softer, and the knives themselves are thicker not to mention have different profiles, this means they quickly dull although they are easier to sharpen and with a honing steel the edge can be brought back easier then a Japanese style knife in between sharpening. The reason you won't find much love for sets is that when you buy one you will notice you are using the same 2-3 knives all of the time and wondering why you bought the other 7. Of you post what you cook, how often what your priorities are I'm sure others will be able to direct your search towards other knives that will probably serve you better.
