Knife set with block

Hi,

Any good deal on a knife set with a block?

I keep looking at this one when I go to to Costco:
https://www.costco.ca/j.a.-henckels-cla ... 28632.html
Is this good value and quality? I know it's not made in Germany, but I have a similar bread knife, five star and it is made in Spain and cuts very well.

Any advice is welcome.

Thanks

I have a couple of those, the bread knife and the chef's knife. Made in Spain. Paid $100 for the pair in the 1990s. I was living on student loans back then and that was a princely sum. But they're still going strong, I've used them almost daily since. Two of the best kitchen purchases I ever made.
I wouldn't buy that set because I have no use for most of those knives, but yes if you find them all useful then I'd go for it.

Would I be better with a made in Germany set? Like this one : https://www.thebay.com/product/zwilling ... lor=SILVER
