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

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.
Agreed... or just move on if the deal is not for you....

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.

You would have to use a course grit stone to get rid of dents, depending on how large they are. Once the edge is repaired and sharpened, then you use a hone before each use to keep it sharp. I use a ceramic rod hone, not steel.

Also, in previous threads people sometimes found the exact same item at Home Sense for ~$80.

Depends on what you mean by "dents". To fix dents all you do is remove enough material through sharpening until the dents are gone.

Smaller dents means less material needs to be removed and usually through sharpening cycles it will be fixed.

Bigger dents require more material to be removed and is better done by a professional on a super low grit stone. Usually if the dents are huge the whole knife needs to be re profiled/reshaped. A 8 inch chef knife could become a 6 inch petty.
