I've been looking for some global knives for a while - this is a great price (same ones being used on Masterchef).
Myer have these on sale instore for 30% off and their normal price is $399, so $280 after discount - they also have the Synergy set in (just a different block - same knives) for the same price.
David Jones have this in stock for "normal" price of over $600
