These older Henckels lines go on sale fairly often now, partly because of the obsolete bolster at the back of the blade that gets in the way of sharpening. Your choices are to grind that down when you sharpen it, or just ignore it and sharpen the blade up to it - which over time results in the bolster becoming a peg that stops the blade edge from reaching the cutting board.

For those who wants to wait, you can usually find this set at The Bay for the same price with bonus steak knives during one day sales. I bought it for 224$ three months ago including the 8 steak knives. It's a good set for the price.
