I'm sure there will be a lot of Japanese Knife Fans that have their favorite brand/line. Mcusta Zanmai is by far my favorite for this price range. These knives do not go on sale as often Shun and Miyabi.

You will find the set is already on sale for $100 less than typical retail price. The additional $59.99 will be applied at checkout (site wide 20% holiday savings)...not sure how long this will last, so YMMV and good luck.

It depends on what you value, but there is a cult following of this knife maker in the knife community. He is lesser known because he doesn't advertise or market and sells through distributors in the US. IMO this is the better built and feels better than Shun. Partly because I'm a lefty and don't like the D shaped handles on the Shun Classic. I also don't like how brittle the Shun Premier are comparatively. Night and day in relation to a Wusthof...I still use my Wusthof if I'm working close to bone, other than that it's my Mcusta. I'm sure you will get a lot of opinions, but I'd encourage you to visit the chef's knife community on reddit for more SME opinions than mine or others on this page.
