[Costco] Costco - Global NI 3-piece Knife Set - 159,99$

Not sure how quality of this NI set compares to the Standard set that was on sale at 129$ a few weeks back

This seems like a good deal, but I'm unsure how useful the other two knives will be. If I were only to get one I'd get the chef's knife, so are the other two notable useful enough to warrant paying a bit more then the chef's knife solo on sale?

I only want a good knife for cutting veggies and maybe like some fat off a steak before cooking. What the heck do you use as - at the table knife to cut meat?

the small knife is great for cutting veggies. The chef knife is definitely a no brainer

Good price! - the 8" alone is almost that.

If you can/have/should get just one, a good chef's a way to go. 8" is a great size imho. But if you can afford this kit, might be quite useful. I have just one Global G2 (chef,8") and more often than not I prefer wash it and use again for handling different things (like from beef to veggies), rather than use another knife (I have some that amazonbasics block that was quite popular couple of years ago) - it would be easier having 2 equally good knifes.

The smallest one (the paring knife) is great to smaller things, like peeling fruits, dicing stuff, handle garlic and stuff like that. Obviously you can use a bigger knife, but a small paring gives a lot of agility (and some safety even);
huuuu! (¬'-')¬ C-('-'Q) straight!

It's a good deal, especially for those who missed the Global Classic set of 3 for $129.99. I'm content with the classic, but may have considered this one for $30 more. The chef's knife is a no brainer. The vegetable one is good - it's nice having one knife for the meat and a separate one for the veggies when cooking a meal. The paring knife is perfect for the smaller stuff, and I surprisingly use it quite often.

Any reason not to buy this if I can afford it and have been contemplating a solid set of knives for some time, but still have a lot of patience for another deal?

Want the 8" but would rather buy it along with the sharpener. I'm sure I would use the other two knives, but I don't necessarily need them. The proper sharpener, on the other hand, I would need.

If these have the same edge as the Classic then the MinoSharp Sharpener is the best choice. I have a MinoSharp3 Plus coming in next week for my Classics, will report back how good it is.

Same, same.

I really appreciate posters sharing these Global deals - one day the stars will align where there's a good deal on the set I really want, and I see it in time!

cheers,
:)

Thanks picked up a set. William's Food charges $165 just for the chefs knife and $350 for this set.

I never ended up pulling the trigger on the classic mainly from reviews mentioning the small handle. The Ni is supposed to be slightly heftier all around which is my preference.
