Good deal. I took a George Brown Culinary class 10 years ago and was taught by a chef who worked at the 4 seasons. He said Global is the best (despite being a stamped blade) but said it was exorbitantly priced at $200...I have one (got it on a deal similar to this run by Shop.ca back in 2013/14), pretty damn sharp. Just remember to steel the knife before and after each use. They have Minosharp (racist?) water-stone sharpeners that can go for 50 bucks or less on a good sale.

Good deal if you prefer a santoku as a main knife. If im going to start , ill get an 8” chef’s knife. It is better than a santoku for me. Upvoted!

I'll never understand why people downvote perfectly good deals without any explanation. There should be comment field you have to fill out when you downvote a deal.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I downvoted this thread because I came in here expecting there to be a discussion about knives and instead I find a bunch of people whining about downvotes (who cares?). But since it bothers you so much, have another one!

Would this be a good addition to my Global G2 knife + 220 minosharp I previously bought from Costco? I'm moving out soon and my only knife is still the G2 so I'm trying to build it up a bit before my move.

Yeah it's not a bad set. I did something similar.
What I did was buy the G2, used that for a couple months, and ended up buying the entire Global knife block from the Bay a month ago which was nice =D
I do have two G2 knives now but it's nice to have an extra one around the kitchen for someone else to join in too/have a replacement.

edit: the Classic 12.7 cm (5 in.) cook’s knife is a bit small but I actually really like it!

I'd just stick with what you have and maybe pick up a paring knife.

Is this a good starter set or more of a complement set?
I don't cook much and I just use generic Canadian Tire knife when I do.

I want to buy them as gift to my parents but if it requires a lot of sharpening and special care than it might be too much hassle for them.

No real special care, but all knives require the same common sense care to keep them in good shape...
things like:

only use them on proper cutting boards, never cut on plates or glass.
hand wash and dry right away, don't leave them in the sink soaking in water.
don't throw them into a pile with other utensils.

Common sense things to keep the edge from being prematurely damaged.

The Minosharp sharpener that you can buy does an ok job of sharpening the knife. I'd recommend that if they don't want to pay for more expensive sharpening.

To compare deals, the G2 Chef's knife and Minosharp was also a great deal, but you do get a 5" knife which can be handy if you tend to cook in smaller portions, sometimes the in between size is nice to have.....in general you want a big 8+ inch chef's knife and a small paring knife. I tried the minosharp sharpener and it seems to do fine in reviving the blade, better than other pull through sharpeners I've tried. Ideally you should use a honing steel to maintain the edge

One more question. Is the 7'' main knife here too short to use as main knife?
I see that G2, Victorinox Fibrox are all 8''.

Is this set is more of complimenting set than a starter set?

I find the 7” is perfect for all purpose knife at home. Especially the santoku, so easy to use, 8inch chefs knife is also a great size. Cant go wrong with either. I have one of each in my kitchen but tend to use the 7” more often. Thanks OP. This is solid deal, that 5” knife it comes with is also a very good knife.
